Marirose and Jim's wedding day starts with a bang

August 17, 2013  •  6 Comments

You really learn a lot about somebody when a vintage Rolls Royce crashes into their house on their wedding day. On Saturday, I learned what Marirose, Caitlin and Dr. Pat Grady are all about. 

As Caitlin helped her sister finish getting ready for her big day, Pat and I were in the living room, taking a few pictures.

Without warning, it sounded like the house was collapsing around us. As the house shook, I thought is was an earthquake. When the noise stopped, we bolted out the front door. In the driveway we saw the classic white Rolls Royce that Pat had booked to drive Marirose to the wedding, had crashed into the garage. It took out the door and part of a brick wall.

Marirose and Caitlyn were right behind us and and were as shocked as we were to see the garage damage and the mangled front end of the Rolls. The driver, who was really shaken up and muttering a lot, said he lost his brakes in the Gradys' driveway.

The girls took a quick look at the scene and pretty much said 'that's insane- nobody's hurt- let's finish getting ready'. And that's exactly what they did. Twenty minutes later the family was in the back of a stretch limo and headed to St. Lukes Catholic Church like nothing ever happened!

The rest of the day went like this: beautiful wedding, fun photo shoot in Delaware Water Gap, cocktail hour, dinner and a big bash at Flander's Valley in New Jersey. The weather stayed fantastic, just like Marirose and Jim.

Maybe you realized this happened, maybe you didn't, but I am just loving the 3rd picture in the blog of Caitlin and Marirose, with the picure of Patrick on the wall in the hallway.If you believe in this stuff (which I do) then you know that he was there for sure on Saturday!
