24: March 7, 2009 Stacey and Josh decided to turn Stacey's 40th birthday party into a 'Surprise Wedding'. We told our family so they could travel to Ohio. Morrisa and Don, Sandi, Penni and Gerry, Debbie, Pammi, Joseph, Jason and Josh, Jeff, Susan and Marlee all came. Josh had his Uf Ruf at Tifereth Israel, the Monday morning before our wedding. The Cantor and congregants agreed to keep our secret. The night before, we told the kids. Ethan, Romi, Austin and Nolan were excited and promised to keep the secret. We all went to Max and Erma's for dinner Friday night. On Saturday, the ladies all went to Kenneths to have their hair done. Cornucopia arrived with the food and set up late afternoon. Mr.Sushi was the main menu item. Stacey wore a Nanette Lepore party dress when everyone arrived. Friends were all dressed casually as planned. At 8:00 when Rabbi Unger arrived, Stacey explained to all the guests that the 'planned' surprise was not really for her but for all of them. As she said "We're Getting Married!". Screams, tears, and laughter broke out. Stacey went to change into her Nicole Miller wedding dress with friends in tow.
25: Josh and Stacey had the Ketubah signing with all of our family and friends. The Chuppah was set up with Josh's new Tallis. Morrisa, Don, John Kirsner and John Erickson were the Chuppah holders. Romi and Nolan looking so beautiful walked Stacey to the Chuppah. As the ceremony progressed, a shout out was heard, "This is so great" by Lisa Goldsand, while Gayle Rosen cried. Ethan and Austin were so handsome as they presented the rings to Josh. Stacey and Josh danced to 'Love of a Lifetime'' by Firehouse. We all danced some horah's.. Our strong male friends had Stacey and Josh up on the chairs . The food was delicious, dessert was yummy. The napkins read "Stacey and Josh's Surprise Wedding (well, not to us)" . The weather was extremely warm (70 ) and our wedding was just that too. Intimate and sweet, surrounded by our friends and family.
