If the weather gods were appeased by any one of you, we send our thanks. There were just enough clouds to create a fantastic sunset and a glare-free ceremony. The breeze was gentle and the lights hanging from the trees cast a gentle glow, blowing quietly, making soft shadows on the driveway.
There was so much love, denizens. There were so many friends and roommates and co-workers gathered in our house, it was a veritable tableau of our lives. They came from Los Angeles and Indiana and Illinois, from New Jersey and Maryland and Brazil. They had heard about one another, they knew each other's stories, and last night they were face to face.
It was amazing.
We spent the day primping. Jesse started on their hair before noon. The texts were flying fast and furiously. Friends were arriving and wanting to know if the men-folk needed ties, if the ceremony was at 5:30 or 6, if she was happy.
The answer to that last one should be self-evident.
There is more, much much more. It was the most wonderful event I have ever attended. If I could keep my eyes open, if my fingers were able to move around the keyboard, I'd be telling you all about it.
For now, know that it was perfect. I'll tell you more tomorrow. Right now, I have to go to sleep.
