The Wedding

16. May 2003, Brugg
Da wir beschlossen hatten unsere Trauung auf eine standesamtliche zu beschränken, legten wir Wert darauf, dass die Trauung auf einem besonders schönen Standesamt in schöner Umgebung stattfinden würde. So fiel unsere Wahl auf das Standesamt in Brugg, wo wir mit einer feierlichen Rede den Bund fürs Leben geschlossen haben. Martine, Annewiens Schwester und Sher, Romans Vater, besiegelten die Trauung. Traditionsgemäss hatte der Bräutigam die Ringe tatsächlich im Auto liegenlassen, aber zum Glück konnte die Situation dank familiärer Unterstützung dann noch rechtzeitig gerettet werden. Anschliessend floss im wunderschönen nahegelegenen Park bei prächtigem Sonnenschein der Champagner in kleinstem Kreis. The Wedding took place in the Rathaus of Brugg, Aargau. It was planned to be a small affair, with an elegant dinner after that. Most everything did work out, except the groom DID forget the rings in the car, where they had to be fetched at the last moment by Bart. It was an unusually sunny Friday, with perfect weather provided.
