Whether or not you know much about Davis, you probably know one thing: it's bloody hot in the summertime. There was a certain method to our madness in scheduling the wedding for June 25th, though: we knew all of the immediate family would be away from school responsibilities, we knew everyone could be in Davis that weekend, and (since we'd planned to go to Monterey for a honeymoon) we knew the weather would be beautiful at the honeymoon site.
The first thing to go was the honeymoon... Laura finished her teaching
credential at San Francisco State in May, and had been casting about for a bit
trying to find a job. (Such is often the new teacher's lot.) She was hired
(huzzah!) to teach a summer program at Newark Memorial High School, with the
understanding that it could lead to a full-time position in the fall. Only
it began the week the wedding.
