  • The Photos You've All Been Waiting For

    That is happiness; to be dissolved into something complete and great.
    -Willa Cather

    I'm sure that - to the extent you've thought about it - you imagined that the beau-turned-husband and I might be off on a fabulous honeymoon. Alas, life in the Navy dictates that we've been back at work for most of the week. Re-entry is always rough, and it's been a long week. And aside from the Chuppah, two weddings, Rowena gifted to it's owner, some finished socks, a new shawl, well, there's lots of blog fodder when I have time. But a little weekend respite gave me (er, I mean, the husband) time to at least upload the photos from the flitgirl's wedding.

    We'll start with The Chuppah. It was beautifully received.The lace was lovely in the old stone chapel against a backdrop of an organ, and the ivory color that the white Zephyr is complimented the flitgirl's dress just perfectly.

    And now that your curiosity has been satisfied regarding that master work, some gratuitous shots of all the general happiness. Because it's not every weekend my best friend and I get to both get married. She's already planning the anniversary trips . . .
    One of the best photos of the evening -
    My parents are celebrating their 30th anniversary this summer. Think we'll be as happy in 30 years?

    I'm genuinely moved. The chuppah is utterly gorgeous. A true heirloom.

    But it is your act of love and friendship, your glowing happiness for both your new marriage and flitgirl, even your obvious admiration of your parents that really shines. There's a lot of love in your life right now.

    The chuppah is beautiful, wonderful job. And you are a beautiful bride. Congratulations to you and the beau as well. I like the term beau, so I'll continue to use although he is the husband now.

    Just checking in from Greece to say that I love the pics almost as much as I loved the actual chuppah itself :)

    When you get a chance, forward any other wedding pictures you have to my address (and tell your parents and the two Bs to do so as well). Toasty and I are medicating our wedding-withdrawal with checking out friends' & family's picture albums from the day (and with copious drinks, sunbathing and tzatziki, as well, of course).

    The Chuppah is as beautiful as I knew it would be and so are you - a beautiful, happy bride. I am so happy for you both. And yes, 30 years from now you will be posting pictures of you and the beau - maybe dancing at your daughter's wedding!

    Awesome photos for a beautiful couple! My husband and I had a 1.5 day honeymoon because we had to go back to work, too. We had 4 days in our place but since it was right before Christmas, my parents (visiting from the other coast for the wedding) joined us for New Year's. It's much more fun to have 2nd (3rd, 4th, etc.) honeymoons anyway!

    Yes, I think you'll be as happy. Aww, beautiful. The chuppah, the couples, the plans for the anniversaries.

    Yay, great photos! The chuppah- stunning! I can't get over it! My bet is on you and the beau-turned-husband will be as happy in 30 years - you're certainly off to a great start in that direction! :)

    Gorgeous! Congratulations on your accomplishment. I feel like all the local news channels should swoop down on you for making something so immense and lovely.
