And this is where things get exciting. No, not because Gary is surrounded by all these beautiful ladies, though I am sure he didn’t mind.
And then the adventure began. The limo lost its breaks on the way to the Liberty Hotel, right by the Museum of Science. They made it safely across the intersection against a red light and then the driver (who was exceptionally skilled, thank goodness) got the car to stop by essentially softly crashing it. The excitement didn’t end there as a highway patrolmen arrived with lights flashing to inquire if the driver knew he had run a light. After figuring out what was going on, he generously offered to bring our couple and Dave to the ceremony at the Liberty Hotel. Best part, so they arrive at the hotel which used to be a jail in a cop car with lights on. Awesome.

Of course, everyone was very happy to hear they made it safely to the party. And ready for a celebration after all of the hoopla.
What I love most about this story is that Chris and Gary took everything in stride with good humor. They actually contacted the TV station to let them know about the incident and they were interviewed along with Dave about it. All in all, a happy ending!
