As a guest I sit there watching it all unfold and then I find so much joy hearing the vows while holding hands with my husband whom I shared those same vows with 5.5 years ago. It's a kind of renewing of our vows every time we get to sit through another ceremony in the presence of God. I just love it. And after the ceremony is over, the vows are said, the rings are exchange and the sometimes awkward but always magical kiss is had....It's time for cake! And dancing, and more cake, and toasts followed by more dancing.
This weekend we had the privilege of participating in all of the aforementioned festivities as we celebrated Megan and Adam. Megan is my sister, Kristen's best friend. They were best buddies growing up, they have been through thick and thin, New York to Dallas, and they have been roommates...close as sisters for the last 3 years. They have been witness as each found their love and have now gotten married.
