My "Caddyshack" Wedding
We hadn't planned our wedding to reflect a specific movie theme, but "Caddyshack" certainly will forever remind me of our reception at the golf course. My wedding day, though not entirely irreverent, certainly had its playfully irreverent moments.
No one parked their jalopy on the first tee, seduced a caddy, or set off any explosives, but we did manage to tell some crass jokes over the course of the day, inadvertently insult the older relatives, and one guest even had his pants off during an impromptu couple of holes with some course regulars. "Caddyshack" certainly lent the right tone to the afternoon and into the evening.
We chose The Patty Jewitt Public Golf Course, in Colorado Springs, Colorado, for our reception for it's reasonable prices and casual ambiance, not to mention the stunning view of Pike's Peak. We thought it would be fun to have "Caddieshack" running on a continuous loop because the clubhouse at the golf course reminded us of the movie. That was back in the days when we still made cassette mix-tapes. All our wedding music was culled from our personal collection and masterfully woven onto cassettes by my husband - and were able to loop a movie onto a VHS tape without batting an eye.
Most of our younger friends enjoyed seeing "Caddyshack" playing in the background through most of the reception. Though the film remains pretty tame by today's standards, there is one partially nude love scene. It was at this point during the second run of the tape that one relative who happened to take a rest at one of the tables near the screen, decided it was crass and disgusting and chose to turn it off. So, in keeping with the rebellious attitudes of the youth in "Caddyshack", we had irritated our elders. But like Maggie, a jumpin' for joy in the middle of the night, I was too busy dancing, enjoying the moment to worry too much about it.
At some point during the amber summer twilight a couple of our friends escaped from the party and struck up a conversation about golf with a couple of regulars. Before we knew it they had played several holes and sunk a ball into a drainage ditch. Pants were removed and the ball was delicately retrieved from its unfortunate position, pants were donned and the game played on from at least one more tee. Our photographer happened to catch it, too.
And sadly missing from the whole event was my dear old dad, lost to cancer already 3 years. He would have had a great time that day. But "Caddyshack" also evoked his memory. He was a sturdy, fun-loving guy, before cancer. He had a big reddish brown beard and, I swear, he used to dance exactly like the gopher. He didn't get to dance with me at my wedding, but every time I saw that goofy rodent boogie on the TV screen, I would chuckle and share some private joke over my memories of dad instead of dwell on the reality that he couldn't be there in person.
No gophers were actually seen on the course during that "Caddyshack" wedding. But at least one fox graced the event with his presence, loping a curious and leisurely pace at a safe distance, sulking in the shadows of the clubhouse, right about the time Danny Noonan was teaming up with Ty Webb and socking it to Judge Smails on the last green, for the third time that day.
