Can we throw the biggest Fluther party ever for Our Founder - Ben! - who is getting married this weekend?

Asked by janbb (51307points) September 3rd, 2012

Indeed, he is! I’d like to wish him my heartiest of Mazel Tovs and hope you’ll all join in congratulating him. Pancakes, guacamole and cake in the frizzer to him and his wonderful wife-to-be!

So? Nu? Is she Jewish, already?
And what does her father do? Yenta wants to know.

Oh and Ben, sweetie, if you can, please don’t invite Uncle Irving. At the last wedding, he made a pig of himself and ate all the stuffed olives. Aunt Bertie was mortified.

She is @occ here; her father was a Rabbi.

Here is her cryptic question from last week asking about attractive flattish shoes for dancing but not for crippling feet.

marinelife's avatar

Congratulations @Ben and @occ! You are embarking on the adventure of a lifetime! Wedded bliss is the very best! There will be downs, but they will be offset by the ups. As long as you enjoy each other’s company and laugh together, you will be happy!

Coloma's avatar

Yay! Congrats, even though I know nothing about you, I can be a wedding crasher, sure! Point me in the direction of the champagne please.

wundayatta's avatar

Congratulations, you two! Live long and prosper. Have a great party.

And if you pay me enough, I won’t give you that long, long, toast that my great uncle Eddie delivered at my wedding, thus flattening the whole thing for a good half hour!

Just kidding. I don’t have an uncle Eddie. And you can ignore anything I say just by skipping it.

If you put a fraction of the energy into your marriage that you put into Fluther, not only will you be forever happy with your spouse but you will have a tide pool of baby jellies of your own to show off! Congrats on the nuptial bliss!

nebule's avatar

Can we have pics please post event?? xx

Nullo's avatar

Woo! Congrats!

janbb's avatar

(P.S. – I heard from a little bird that it was a wonderful wedding!)

augustlan's avatar

Andrew said it was “enchanting”. :)

gailcalled's avatar

As did the little bird in my life. I am waiting for picture.

@janbb; Did my little bird meet your little bird?

janbb's avatar

@gailcalled My little bird has been busy in Mountain View catching worms all week so I haven’t gotten a full report. Il retournera(?) a Paris and sa famille le samedi.

augustlan's avatar

@gailcalled and @janbb If you’re FB friends with Ben, go to his profile and click on pictures. Several friends and his new bride have posted pics, and they are lovely!

Bellatrix's avatar

I hope he can post one photo. Even if the faces are pixalated. It would be lovely to see.

gailcalled's avatar

@augustlan: I saw only two, not very good quality and with everyone’s back turned. However, Ben seems to be wearing very cool shoes (but no poo hat.)

The other pics are of his brother Dan’s wedding in several months ago. It has been a busy time for the Finkels. Oldest bro David and his lady are pregnant with second child.

Belated congratulations to two lovely jellies!
