We always enjoy being a part of weddings where we get to experience something new for the 1st time. Well it actually happened three times at the Gorge Pavilion in Cascade Locks, at the wonderful wedding of Kate and Charlie.
Charlie has won the honor of being our 1st groom to get married in full Scottish attire, (well we think is Scottish attire) including the kilt. He looked great and really knew how to pull off the look, I have never met such a manly man in a skirt, lol. They said their vows outside under a giant oak tree in typical Oregon fashion, with a few rain drops and a chilly breeze. A little unexpected for the out of town wedding party and guests, but our bride and groom didn't seem to notice at all. It was a beautiful setting along the majestic Columbia River and they are a truly adorable couple.
The second "1st" we got to experience was seeing these cute little alien guys on top of the wedding cake. I wish we had asked the significance of them, as I am sure they have a special meaning to Kate and Charlie. But I must say, they are the cutest cake toppers we have ever seen, and the first aliens.
Finally, this wedding has the distinction of being our first wedding where the couples dog was part of the wedding party. She was really a fun addition, and looked beautiful in her wings, and even became quite the honorable guest at the reception. You can see how much she love her humans becoming family.
