On that day, then President Clinton was scheduled to be in town for a campaign visit, so we invited him to the ceremony. Not surprisingly, he did not show up but we did receive a very nice card with computer generated signatures of the President and First Lady.
I also wrote a song the occasion. To this day it is the only time I was ever truly nervous playing and singing.
Gitsul was the best man.
After the ceremony we went downtown and had pictures take on Cafesjian's Carousel.
Being young, nontraditional idealists we chose to write our own vows.
I Sven, take you FrankenKristin, to be my partner in marriage. I promise to accept and cherish who you are now, who you will be as we grow and change, and never take our time together for granted. I will love, honor and respect you all the days of my life.
If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing.
Except I might comb my hair.
