Thunder Cats Ho!

Dressing fancy is always fun.

Val and Ian Looking Fancy @ Alyson and Thunder's Wedding

Alyson and Andrew “Thunder” Carvalho got married this past Sunday. It was a nice wedding in Newport with about 50 people. Got Val and I thinking about maybe making some actual wedding plans one day.

The ceremony was held on the roof of the hotel which was pretty cool. It was great weather, with a cool breeze. The breeze proved too strong for Alyson’s veil, which blew off into her (now) mother-in-law. The breeze was also too strong for the Chuppah which had one pole come loose and hit the groom in the head!

The wedding ceremony was still nice. The flower girls were adorable and the ring bearer was looking sharp!

We went downstairs to the party room for the wedding reception. The cocktail hour had sushi, which was…interesting. The dinner had filet minon, which was…fancy. The party music was mostly 80′s, which was…AWESOME:

Yes, the above picture is Val doing the robot. In case you didn’t know, according to wikipedia (my source for all things factual), “The robot dance is frequently featured in movies, television shows and live events.”

Amy Christian (seen in group picture below) also enjoyed the music. In fact, when one hit was played she exclaimed, “You know, people make fun of him, but that Michael Jackson…he’s alright!”

Overall a good time. It was pretty funny with the high Brandeis turnout, so we made sure to take a group photo:
