Hanging out in the lobby of the Hyatt in Bellevue early this afternoon and I came upon this happy couple getting ready to be married later today.
That said, the women at this wedding, so far, are incredibly beautiful. What a show. Everyone is wondering if there there will be wifi in the hall but I’m not bringing my laptop or camera, just bringing my eyes and ears. I am not wearing a tux either. Just a suede jacket, slacks and a tie, and at that I feel horribly over-dressed. I do admit to trying on a suit at Nordstrom’s, and there was a time believe it or not when I wore a suit to work every day, but that was a long time ago. Now, even at a wedding of two dear friends, I still dress what many would call casual. Much love to Ponzarelli, she’s a real sweetie, and a courageous one at that. Chris is a very very lucky man. Hope he knows it.
