The parents and bridal party met at The Governor Hotel's Renaissance Room for the rehearsal at 5 p.m. on Friday, August 31, 2001. It took a little while -- and a little conversation -- to figure out exactly what we needed to do.

We all managed to find our places at the rehearsal ... and did fine on the big day too!


After the rehearsal, we headed to the Old Market Pub and Brewery for a pizza buffet.
