With this ring…

For these folks, obviously it just isn’t a real wedding without shotguns and monster trucks.  But hey, to each his and her own.  I am sure they had a wonderful time on their wedding day and that in the end is all that matters.  My wife Janet and I got married at this wonderful wedding venue in Seattle called the Stimson Green Mansion twenty years ago last month.  We also had a wonderful wedding.

Even before you start scoping out wedding sites, you must have a ring.  And I would suggest wedding bands made by members of our extended American family.  I came across a firm that has been making engagement and wedding rings in the U.S. since 1986.  Novell Design Studio makes a myriad of beautiful rings for virtually any taste.  You choose the engagement or wedding band online, then go to an authorized Novell retailer and choose your diamond or other stone.  Here are a few of my favorite Novell designs.  I really love this engagement ring,

Novell can also work with you to design your own one-of-a-kind band for your nuptials.  Whatever ring you and your betrothed decide on, you will know that your choice is supporting members of your extended America family at Novell who will be handcrafting your rings.

Now, with the power invested in me by the State of Washington, I pronounce you shoppers for American made wedding bands.  You may kiss the bride or groom, whatever the case may be!
