It was a night to remember!
Terry and I are so grateful to the good people of Galena, Illinois for giving us an amazing wedding and an unforgettable night. I think we both were a bit surprised at how emotional it was for us to renew our wedding vows after thirty years of marriage. At the end of the day, it was one of the most important things we’ve done as a couple.
We are also grateful to the many family and friends who came long distances to be a part of our celebration. It truly meant the world to have you there.
A huge thank you to all the merchants of Galena who were apart of the Wedding In A Window. I know it took a village to pull off this huge event. I would like to especially thank the Ramada Inn in Galena for their amazing support, patience, and decorations of the banquet hall, Also a thank you to the Goldmoor Inn for our incredible digs, to Fred and Fried Green Tomatoes for its show-stopping lasagna, to Jeff and Cathy with UnPosed Photography for their unbelievable photos, Vignettes for the venue, and I Do Bridal for the beautiful dress. Also a shout out to Darlene and Wendy for all their organizational efforts! These are just a tiny number of the many, many stores and shops who came together to make this such a special night for us. Thank you to all.
I’ve included a few photos from the day. We had snow! Made for some amazing pictures. Hope you enjoy.
Terry and I wish you an amazing New Year! Thank you for being apart of tswails.com.
We consider you all…family.
Terry Swails has been a television meteorologist in the Midwest since early 1977. He began his broadcasting career at KWWL-TV and has also been employed by KDUB-TV, KWQC-TV, and WQAD-TV, where he has been the prime time meteorologist for the last 5 years.
A popular fixture in Quad Cities television since 1986, Terry's passion and commitment to weather is well known. Aside from his television duties, He produces forecasts for the Quad City Times, a number of Quad City radio stations, and does work as a private consultant.
An avid storm chaser, Terry spent a week with legendary forecaster Tom Skilling in search of tornadoes in 2010. They saw their first tornado together (a violent multi vortex EF3) outside Wakita, Oklahoma. Terry and well known storm chaser Jim Reed also watched the eye of Hurricane Irene go directly overhead on the shores of Coney, Island in 2011.
With his vast knowledge of weather and unique perspective, Terry is also the author of several books. His first Superstorms was completed in 2005. He followed that up with Un-Natural disasters in 2008, and All I want to for Christmas is to see a Tornado in 2011. Terry collaborated with his wife Carolyn Wettstone on the last 2 books and has utilized her experience as a writer and former television anchor in a number of weather related projects.
Terry says he hasn't met a storm he didn't like. Tornadoes and snowstorms are his bread and butter and predicting the atmosphere is a challenge that never gets old.
Terry says this web site is a compilation of his life long love affair with weather. He points out "I put everything I would want as a meteorologist into the site. It's fun, informative, and even educational." He also adds, "I hope you find it enjoyable as well!"
