current mood: blissful

I keep looking for something eloquent and meaningful and beautiful to say about my wedding, but I don't have any words yet. I felt every moment of it, and for ten hours or so, I lived like a poet, but what they don't tell you is that when you're really living your life, you don't make such good memories of what you're living -- it's kind of an interesting deal, at least for me. Experience it, or remember it later. I don't remember what Reverend O'Brien said to us -- other than he kept saying we were embarking on a great adventure, and that triggered both the silly song from the beginning of the animated Hobbit for me, and also when Lucy takes off running, we always say she's going on a 'venture.

But I remember the look in Robb's eyes when we turned to each other to say our vows. I remember the way his voice cracked -- just a touch -- when he said the words "I take you to be my wedded wife."

And I will never, ever forget the rush of emotion when my Dad said he wanted to share our dance with all my fathers. I never knew he had such graciousness in him. He's a better man than I thought, and I'm so grateful for the gift he gave me.

It was a beautiful day, and I'm so thankful we had so many wonderful friends there to share it with. And a huge, special thanks to the folks who hung out and played poker with us until 1:30 am; it was the perfect end to our wedding day.

Well, not quite the end, of course. We went upstairs, and made wonderful, fantastic love to each other.

I didn't know our relationship could be even closer, even more secure, even more perfect.

I will post pictures when I get them. :)

Thank you! I've noticed, when I go to weddings, that I tell people I loved the ceremony if I did, and avoid mentioning it if I didn't. The number of people who went out of their way to tell me how lovely the ceremony was -- and the compliments I got on how interfaith it was, thanks J and Adam! lol -- meant the world to me.

I don't think I've ever seen you so clearly happy, and unburdened as you were that day.

I was beaming for you. I was so proud of everyone. It was perfect.

Thank you. It was really fantastic, and I haven't felt that uncomplicatedly happy in a long time, if ever. I wish this for everyone. :)

Thank you so much! I wish very much that I could have invited so many more people...I'm sorry I didn't get to share the day with you and Sam. You were in my mind, though, you always are. Hugs to you.

It really was a beautiful wedding. I loved how personal the ceremony was and the utter joy radiating from both you and Robb was delightful to watch.

Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it!

Congratulations, dear heart. All my best and brightest blessings to you and your beautiful family.. may you live and love long.

I love the thought of you living and thinking like a poet, even if only for a few hours.

Strew your heart with flower petals and bask unashamedly in joy.

Congratulations K! I am just poking my head in here to see how distant friends are doing. I'm glad you've found your bliss! Marriage only gets better as the years go along! :)
