Where did you get
We were married on December 3rd at the Emerson
Unitarian Universalist church and the reception
was at the Courtyard on St James.
We honeymooned in the Cape Winelands in South
Did you two consciously
decide to put energy into your first dance?
How often did you
Half an hour every day for the three
weeks before the wedding.
What song did you dance
I love you more today than yesterday (but
only half as much as tomorrow) by Spiral
What did the people say
when they saw you?

What dances did you dance
at your wedding?
