Well, folks, it finally happened! I am a married man and Tessa is now officially the Twisted Missus! The ceremony was amazing and went much smoother than I had anticipated considering that the rehearsal the night before was a bit of a train wreck. However, thanks to numerous friends and family members, it took off without a hitch!
My cousin Debra, despite it being the day after her 40th wedding anniversary, stepped up to lead the charge on coordinating the wedding and had lots of help from my Aunt Pat, my best man Kenny, my groomsmen, Tessa's maid of honor Krista, her bridesmaids, her cousins and others. Krista's husband, Brandon ran the intro and outro music and Mike Burket played a killer interpretation of Pachelbel's Canon in D during the ceremony. Troy, one of my groomsmen doubled as the DJ for the reception and belted out some killer 80s hit tunes including mine and Tessa's song "We Belong" by Pat Benatar which we danced to during the reception.
After the reception, we took off in a limo provided by the good folks at Celebrity Limousine and headed back to the Twisted Homestead to pack and head out to Port Everglades down in Fort Lauderdale, FL to catch a cruise to the Western Caribbean on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas. More on that venture in Twisted Gets Hitched Volume 2: The Honeymoon....OF DOOM!!!! Okay just kidding about the doom part! Here's just a few of the pics from the wedding with more to come on Facebook as well as honeymoon pics!
Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you Mr. and Mrs. Twisted Todd
Last night was date night for me....and BOOGER! Since Tessa was working, we went to go see the new METALLICA concert film Through the Never in IMAX 3D at Regal Simpsonville Stadium 14 & IMAX. The film was fantastic with great effects and an intriguing plot for the concept part of the film. LED ZEPPELIN only wished they had the kind of toys METALLICA had to play with for The Song Remains the Same and it's the best musical concept film since PINK FLOYD's The Wall.
The film follows a roadie trying to take some fuel to a band truck that has run out of gas. On his ill-fated journey to the stranded vehicle, his vehicle gets T-boned thus leaving him stranded on abandoned city streets that will soon lose their vacancy in a swell of turmoil that engulfs the city in mass rioting.
The only thing that could have improved the film would have been had it featured the band as they were over 20 years ago. That being said, I highly recommend the film to any and all fans of the band. You will not be disappointed!
