With this ring . . .

Audrey and I had been talking about renewing our vowes for some time. It seemed like a fun thing to do. We'd talked about doing it for our 10th anniversary, but the date came and went and we hadn't made any arrangements.

Opportunities appear when you least expect them. On March 7th, 1997, Audrey and I had been married for 124 months. That day, I spotted an article in Detroit News, which read:

I sent a fax to WHYT and they said they'd be happy to have us participate. Not only that, but they would rent me a tuxedo, buy flowers for Audrey, and give us a dozen tickets to the circus. We couldn't turn down an offer like that.

March 15th, Audrey and I, along with three other couples, stood up before the audience at the Shrine Circus and renewed our vows. We had a pair of elephants as attendants (in wedding attire). We also had animal trainers, aerialists, jugglers, and clowns as attendants. Sitting in the audience were various friends and family.

After the wedding, we retreated to a private reception hosted by the Shrine Potentate.

The remainder of this page is still under construction. We hope to have more photos later.
