Is this thing on?

Jon checking to see if the camera on the tripod had been timed correctly, our wedding day, August 24, 2002. Oops.

  • Fran

    The dress is beautiful! The flowers lovely. You look gorgeous. But I’m trying to figure out why you would marry a man whose head is three times the size of your head.

    Oh, wait, my bad. It’s all about the perspective. Carry on.

    Alena – I know why the fat man has the penis issue, and this may be too much info. As the man gets fatter, his mons pubis gets fatter, and the penis kinda gets enveloped by the fat. If he loses weight, the fat goes, and the knob goes back to normal. So it’s not that his penis shrinks, it’s just not um..fully displayed.

    I just typed the words “mons pubis”. Woah.

    Dooce, my husband and I were married on August 27, 2002, and my son was born on February 3, 2004. I just thought it was kinda cool our important dates were so close to yours. Beautiful!

  • Flowers

    Gerber Daisies and roses!

  • jill

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. You’re Gorgeous! And he ain’t so bad either…

    Always love your photo’s… it’s a daily addiction!

  • christilee

    That picture is fucking beautiful. I would marry you guys in a heart beat. Please excuse the ass kissing, but I am dead serious!

  • another paula

    My god yes! You do have incredibly long arms and large hands! I agree- I like your hair not curled like that.. yikes!

    But- wow- is Jon hot without facial hair…wowwowowoww… is that why you encourage him to grow it? lolol…

  • Meggan

    Whoever said this looks kinda like a paparazzi picture was right. And you both look great.

  • Alejandra

    That’s how I first learned about the blurbdoocery, your way cool wedding pics, as linked to by kottke.

  • back to Chuckie

    Ok, So maybe he doesn’t have the “ridge” but he is SOOOOOOO the rest of the Ridgeback thing…..

    I am now lobbying for the naming of Chuck’s 75% Rhodesian Ridgeback, 25% Retriver.

    Heather? Any votes here? Am I close?

  • bushra

    you know what i like about those little daily photo icon thingies you have on your main page? it’s that you never know what the big picture is going to be.

  • Jonna

    Dooce – Leta looks like you here. A LOT. Can you see it? I think that it’s more apparent to see genetic links when people are making a face that isn’t posed for a camera, but is very natural – this is not a face unlike the one that Leta made when she realized Santa wasn’t you or Jon!

    See? She *does* look like you! Hurrah!

  • Gia on Guam

    You look so much like Gwen Steffani here!

  • Sue FromOhio

    This photo, IMO, reminds me of Gwen Stefani in the What You Waiting For video….Heather’s hair, the dress, all the colors…IMO…I LOVE IT!

  • España

    THAT is my kind of wedding picture!

  • karen

    even when you two are making little gargoyle faces, you still manage to produce an excellent photo. I’m completely irrirated by the entire concept.

  • Harry

    Ahhhhhhh……….Wedding Pic au naturale….the best and most memorable. Bewbie Newc!!

  • Harry

    that was bewdie newc!

  • Nicole

    Number 89: I don’t think Chuck has any Ridgeback in him, but only because Ridgebacks weigh in the 100 pound range and AS CUTE AS CHUCK IS, I could totally take his ass. He weighs, what, around 40 pounds?

    Anyway, I guess we’re all trendy as fuck, because I had orange gerber dasies (at my Vegas wedding) too.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    I had like 4 roses at my wedding. HELLO on a budget here people!

  • trucmuche

    Nice! Is it me or is the picture too stretched horizontally? Looks like the frame was designed for the D70′s aspect ratio.

  • the husband

    This (and all of the wedding shots) was taken with the Nikon 990. We got married before the D70. I was a nervous wreck. Yes, I was getting married. But taking the photos was almost as stressful.

  • Dazed & Confused

    I agree, Karen Rani. They are sofa king adorable.

  • liz

    i guess i’m the only one that thinks one of the flowers in the thumbnail picture (in the upper right corner) looks like a scalloped carrot slice, huh?

    yeah, i’m not surprised.

    by the way- best. wedding. photo. ever.

  • GSV Micturition to Windward

    Never married.
    No prospects.
    Green with envy.

  • trucmuche

    Yes Jon, that’s what I thought – not that you were nervous {what for anyway? You were marrying the doOchess!}, but that the picture was taken with the coolpix (4:3 ratio), which looks stretched on this page because it is made to fit the aspect ratio of the D70 (3:2).

    Ok, enough geekery :-P

  • tickled

    Hey, SEK (#82): August 27 of ’02 was a Tuesday, right? You were married on a Tuesday? Well, so was I. And the first thing my father (who’d flown clear across the country to attend) said was, “Let me ask you one thing: WHAT KIND OF GEEK GETS MARRIED ON A TUESDAY?!”

    Anyway, congrats to you and dooce on your kiddies’ birthdate.
    2/3/4 is awesome!

  • kristal

    One of my favorite pictures so far! perfect timing

  • mashed peas

    I got married on a Tuesday too, Tickled. Now that I think of it, I think my first wedding was on a weekday too. (The dumbass I married insisted on the 4th of July)

    No pictures, no flowers, paid witnesses. Call me romantic.

  • Kimberley H.

    Dress story please. ;)

  • Danielle

    2/3/4 is cool… and pretty soon(ish) we’ll get to have 3/4/5

    but I kinda think a 2/2/4 birthday is cool, because
    A) it is reminiscent of 2+2=4
    B) You get to celebrate on Groundhog’s Day. And who doesn’t love small furry creatures?

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    my son is 2-1-01

  • Dr. Johnny Fever

    To me, a Tuesday wedding is like taking a dump in the sink. Normal people just don’t do that.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    You and the poo Dr

  • Girl.A

    A Tuesday wedding pretty much guarantees you can get married in effin peace.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Umm Heather, I don’t even HAVE CABLE. It doesn’t make me sad. There is no Barney, no Boobahs or whatever the hell they are other than sex), no Wiggles, no none of that. And the GGlobes suck! I am watching them right now…it seems so amatuerish….is it just me?? But I *DO* like Moet.

  • MrsDoF

    Great wedding picture. Brave photographer. Lovely flowers.
    Mine were Silk, and I kept them, in their little basket on the end table, until the third time we moved.
    I’m with Mrs. Strizzay. No cable, but the antenna gets 3 good channels and 2 fuzzy ones. Rarely need to videotape.
    The GG were turned off by the son so he could listen to a Chuck Mangione CD he bought at the thrift store. That horn is wonderful!!

  • becca

    It looks blindingly bright out. I love days like that.

    Add that I’m all of the above AND 40, and the statistical averages pretty much make me suicidal. All of you women out there w/husbands, don’t let the small shit get to you – I would be grateful for it!

  • tickled

    Oh come on, Fever! We’re normal–well, relatively anyway.

    It’s just that it was Quarter Break at the U., see, and we only had a few days before classes started up again. If we married on Tuesday we could get the hell up to Vancouver for a two-day skiing honeymoon and be back in time for the groom’s Saturday night gig, then rest up on Sunday–THAT’s why.

    And no, Girl.A, no effin’ peace either. Well-attended ceremony followed by Big Party at folks’ house, Tuesday notwithstanding.

  • mrs. george #2

    Way to be a non-conformist, getting married on a Tuesday. I think I’ll get married on MONDAY just to piss people off. How is this Monday looking for you, mom?

  • me

    Me and hubby eloped too. The ONLY way to go for a stress free wedding day.

  • jules

    mrs.strizzay i don’t have cable either :( how do i get by day to day… :(

  • very mary

    Yikes. You look about 45 and really ticked off. I am guessing that is not the one on the mantle.

  • Harry

    Girl.A…, thats the way to use profanities!!!

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Cable is over rated. Although the shows are pretty great the only one I really miss is The Daily Show.

  • Kristine

    Must MUST have cable.

    Check it! Respek!
