16 years

Newsworthy events in 1995 - Newt Gingrich becomes Speaker of the House, Major earthquake kills 5,092 in Kobe Japan & later that month a 7.2 earthquake destroys Kobe Japan killing 5,372, OJ's (guilty say what) murder trial, Camilla Parker Bowles & her husband Andrew divorce, Bonnie Blair (shout out to Champaign, IL) skates female world record point total (156.450), Julia Roberts & Lyle Lovette split-up (like we didn't see that one coming), Quarterback Joe Montana announces his retirement from football, Susan Smith was found guilty, Queen Elizabeth askes Prince Charles & Diana to divorce....and in more local news - the hubs & I tied the knot. 

wedding party - a bit excessive, no?  7 bridesmaids/groomsmen, 1 flower girl & 2 ring bearers...huge apology to the maids for the awful fuschia dresses & shoes...and the poofy sleeves, what a big hot mess!   Lovin the little Alexs' (my brother & Justin's cousin) in their shorty tux pants!
oh yeah & then there were the 2 ministers (3 if you count the one that read a poem)
check out my hugo bouquet - had I realized I wouldn't always have that itty bitty waist I would have insisted on a wrist corsage instead
with my parents - they were only a fews years older than I am now
- and wow, did Mom & I have some big hair goin on.  It's like a aqua net ad
the hubs with his fam
add in the sibs - lovin' your skater boy haircut Luc! 
my maternal grandparents
my paternal grandma
with his maternal grandma
and paternal grandparents
4 generations - my grandpa's mom is in the front
first dance - wedding must have, big ol bow on the bride's bootie
the next day we flew (for the 1st time) to St Thomas, USVI for a week long honeymoon - with our baby faces, guessing at least a few peeps wondered where our parents were

I was liking Al's arm hooked in Luc's. Luc says his hair was "stylin'" in '95.
