Vassar Chapel Construction

Wednesday, June 11th, 2003 · 2 Comments

Jen and I have known for quite some time that the Vassar Chapel was going to be under construction on our Big Day — though we were led to believe that the construction would be over by this coming summer. We found out well after we had booked the Chapel and begun other planning (it was around January this year, I believe, even though the Buildings & Grounds department had mailed the letter in November to our old Treasure Island address; it got stuck in the forwarding process for a couple months) that they were extending the renovation project for another year.

Today Shay sent me this photo (thanks, Shay!), which shows just how ugly the facade of the Chapel currently looks (and why we’ll be going elsewhere for our wedding photos). It’s pretty sad. I’m hoping the scaffolding won’t be quite so bad come July. But, as Jen so eloquently put it, it’s what’s inside that counts. I agree. I’m a bit bummed, but am not worrying too much about this. So it goes.

    I wouldn’t write-off photos altogether… the scaffolding would be a fun prop… maybe the two of you sitting on the edge of the scaffolding with box lunches or something.

    It’ll be a part of the wedding, why not make it part of the memories?

    I think you should make the scaffolding part of the wedding photos too — those special wedding photos that you don’t show anyone.

    My RSVP is in the mail.
