The wedding party started with a dinner. Meggie gave a memorable speech titled Ystäväni Minna (My friend Minna). The wedding cake was big. We also had a candy decoration with Minna catching me with a rod. For those who do not understand Finnish, our last name vapa means a fishing rod. We also played Tuttu juttu (A Sure Thing) and got at least two questions right! Our bachelor’s parties were memorized with a garden tree of photos for Minna and a “training day” book for Mikko. All members of the wedding party could sign their names to our together photo.
