It was our first Afton Station/Route 66 wedding! At 1:30 p.m. yesterday, June 13, the hands of longtime companions Sue Cowart and Marly Carpenter were joined in matrimony at a small (very small) ceremony at the Station.
A couple of months ago, I got myself "legalized" as a marriage officiant by making a trip to the county courthouse and signing my name on a couple of lines. That was all there was to it, and now I"m able to marry anyone in the state! Marly and Sue, who have been together for 13 years, decided it was time to tie the knot officially, but they wanted to do it completely informally and without any sort of fanfare. So, our little Afton Station gang jumped right in. Betty was in charge of decorations . . . and one of her amazing strawberry cakes. . .
Robin got the cameras loaded. . .
. . . and the appropriate papers were signed and sealed.
Now, let's get to that cake!
CONGRATULATIONS, MARLY AND SUE!
Anybody else want to get married? My services are available in the state of Oklahoma. In fact, I already have a firm date for another wedding in October, and this time it's a big and formal one. I'm so excited!. This is so much fun that I wish I could make a career of it!
First congratulations to Marley and Sue!
Second, I am so glad that Laurel shared this happy occasion. I'm sure it was fun for the whole gang. Laurel, why not make a career out of it. Wedding chapels are very popular.
How wonderful, continuing to build memories on the mother road...
To Sue and Marly--Best Wishes for much happiness.
Congratulations, Laurel, and well done.
Wonderful! Congratulations to Sue & Marley. What a happy day for all of you! I felt like I was there, thanks to all the photos. And that strawberry cake!!! It really caught my eye. Laurel, you are amazing. Talk about nine lives--you've just entered an amazing new one. I do wish I could have been there. I saw a lot of love going on there. Cheers, Jack.
Congratulations Sue and Marley, and Laurel!
Congratulations Marley and Sue!
A nicely done new chapter in the legend of Afton Station.
That looks like SO MUCH FUN!
I hope you soon get to marry ANYONE!
