The Gamble Wedding

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 13 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Jesse and Kendal were married just over about two and half weeks ago. It was an awesome wedding with many memories. For those that missed it, there is a DVD of it that Kendall Snow Gamble now has. It’s pretty good if you ask me, but I may be biased.

The best way I think to document this wedding is through photos because, let’s face it, I love to be lazy when it comes to writing and picture books are always fun. And as it turns out, I made it into 2.63% of the photos taken at wedding/reception.

Here are the random pictures that just happen to include me in them:

Then there are a couple of me in the walkway with Peter Walchenbach and company:

Next, we have two pictures with the Bride and/not1 Groom:

…you’ll have to forgive the foolish man in the background.

Finally, we have my favorite part. Photos from the Cha Cha Slide. The Cha Cha Slide is one of my favorite dance activities of all time despite the fact that I’ve only done it three times (High School Graduation night three years ago and change, Audrey and Griffin’s wedding a couple months ago, and Kendall and Jesse’s wedding).

I think the last photo is pretty rockin’. There are actually a bunch more photos online (1066 to be precise) that you can get access to if you know the super secret password. If you don’t know it, I will refer you to Kendall or Jesse for access.

By the way, why the frick are wedding photos so expensive to buy? A 4×5 proof costs $11! Didn’t the photographer already get paid for his or time? When I get married, I’m going to require that the photographer release all the photos of wedding under Creative Commons.

There’s also this video which really makes no sense out of context in which is was recorded and the people it includes, but I needed a place to put it, so here it is:

  1. And/Not: I’ve been using this term for some time, although I don’t think anyone else uses it. Example: I’m going to have lunch with Alice and/not Bob. This would be equivalent to: I’m going to have lunch with Alice or Alice and Bob but not Bob without Alice.

  1. I reject this spurious attempt at double-speak.

    Besides being silly (a truly meaningful criticism), its too much information condensed into one neologism.

    I understand it, and I understand why you like it: truly a writing construction aimed at people who write code.

    Basically, I deem it unsuitable on aesthetic grounds.

  2. Lol. Morgan, you’re my hero. It really is a creation from my nerdier side.

    But yes, it’s bad on all sorts of grounds. I’ll try to use it sparingly.

    As a side note, you may be interested in Raymond Chen’s blog. He’s a developer on the Windows Shell team at Microsoft and writes a very good blog. There are bits of code sprinkled in, but I think you may like it anyway: http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/
