The reception this evening was wonderful. The event was held at the Centre of the Arts in the main foyer. It was both elegant and fun, with nice table cloths, flowers, etc along with games on each table and a candy table with blue whales, gum balls, and various sours. Food was excellent. I had a number of great conversations with Zaul, Matt, Stephen, Erik, and an old friend Corey whom I'd not seen in years. They got rid of most of the sexist stuff like "obey" in the vows and throwing garters and flowers to gender specific, unattached groups. Instead they had a strange question and answer session where they faced away from each other and held up shoes in answer to questions about each other. Fun for all.
