A Fabulous Wedding!
While the live orchestra played contemporary tunes, the room was abuzz with chatter on how the “eternal bachelor” finally decided to throw in the towel, succumbing to the bonds of marriage.
The next to enter were the bridesmaids, adorned in beautiful, airy silver dresses. And again, everyone impatiently waited and waited until, at last, a radiant Angele appeared, clutching her lovely children with both hands. Emotions were overflowing, tears streaming down the cheeks of the guests.
She was stunning, her eyes shining like a mirror lake, her gown of lace reminiscent of old photographs of another era. She was resplendent, gushing with joy.
Rob's former professor and mentor at Concordia performed the official duties, recounting how it came to be that the groom decided to cast aside his celibacy and wed his sweetheart. After the exchange of the rings, Rob stomped on a glass, loudly crushing with his right foot in keeping with the storied Jewish tradition.
The reception that followed at the Nelligan was elegant and chic,replete with delicacies for all tastes, from a variety of cuisines, and with wonderful music, primarily from the 80's when disco was the rage.
Rob, in his well-known comedic style, but, at times, also in a more serious tone, spoke about his love for Angele and about the family he dreamed of having and that he could now have given with Angele’s two lovely children.
We danced to the end, Rob and Angele were up in the chairs according to the Jewish tradition. The waiters were sipping champagne to the newlyweds’ health. And it was said that Suzanne, Mutsumi, Aphrodite, Eleni, Jeff and Ted, throughout the revelry, came to the conclusion that happiness is just a decision one must make when the right time arises!
Rob and Angele, we wish you to live happily together forever!
