The Mortons' Wedding - Saturday, May 26, 2001
Cruising around the day of the wedding. Huss at the wheel of the Cirrus
(the ol' Camry was prematurely retired) with Tom riding shotgun. We're on
our way to Bob Evans for some breakfast with the groom and best man. The
groom managed to choke down some fruit, that's about it.
The battlefield before the big show. Unfortunately, the picture did not
capture Morton on his knees in the aisle with his hands outstretched toward
heaven. Trust me, he's there.
Mort getting ready for the main event. The women were weeping in the
streets that day, let me tell you.
Leake. You know, for once before a wedding, I actually had a good night's
And the 402A roommates: Huss, Mort, Leake, and Tom. Who will be
next? That one's up in the air, but if I were a betting man my money's on
Tom. The other groomsman was Morton's cousin, Josh.
After the ceremony: Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Morton.
Arriving at the reception.
The bride and groom taking their seats as Heather tries to maintain her
Best view in the house: Josh (Best Man), Ryan, Monica, Heather, Katie
(groom's sister), Whitney (groom's sister), Amy, and Kelly.
Alas, Heather could take it no longer. Josh (Best Man) and Heather (Maid
of Honor) giving their speeches at the reception.
The newly-wedded couple dining. I guess I felt it necessary to capture
their every activity.
1 down, 3 to go: Tom, Jeff, and Ryan.......

And the OU crowd present at the event. In the back row: Kurt, Ryan,
Chris, Jenni, Brad, Jeff, Tom. In the front row: I'm not sure who
the two on the left are, but Tammy, Heather, and Jill to the right of them.
The first dance of the evening.
The bouquet toss: the victor was Morton's sister Whitney.
And the removal of the garter belt. Huss was the lucky winner of the
garter belt toss.
And the traditional placement of the bridal garter on that woman that caught the
bouquet, in this case Morton's sister, Whitney. Something tells me Mr.
Morton, Sr. was keeping his eye on matters.
A congo line broke-out later at the reception, headed by the bride and followed
by Tom and Jill. Kurt and Leake just sat and watched.
Graduates of the grueling OU T-Comm program: Hortense and Kurtis.
The groomsmen snuck outside for some preparation of the couple's departure
vehicle. Morton's cousin, Josh (Best Man) and Leake very proud of their
work. What was I again, Mort? Was it Groomsman #4? I see how
Huss and Leake taking a moment to admire their work.
Actually, Kurt did the whole thing. We didn't even know about it.
The groomsman stole away for a bit to catch a breath of fresh air, and to nip on
the Jack Daniels.
Jeff and Monica in true Leake fashion: all eyes shut.
