Follow Matt and Kelly Schad on their honeymoon and wanderings to California - and beyond.
The adventure began on October 25, 2014. The wedding started off with a surprise. A strange sound piercing the warm afternoon sun as I was standing waiting for my bride.
My mom had arranged for a highlander to play the bagpipes for the wedding processional.
In ancient Scotland, the bagpipes were used on the field of battle to terrify the enemy into running away. They almost worked.
But I'm glad that I stayed put.
