Break a Leg Cara and Aimee!

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Two of my favorite brides in blog land – Ms. Peonies and Polaroids and (one of my first readers ever) Aimee are getting married this weekend. I wish you both the most delightful, joyful, and imperfect days. May they truly be the first of many days together filled with joy.

For Peony and the Boy:
Two such as you…
Cannot be parted nor be swept away
From one another once you are agreed

That life is only life forevermore

Together wing to wing and oar to oar.
-Robert Frost

And for Aimee and Minh:
For love in infinitely strong,
Many waters cannot quench love;
No flood can sweep it away.
I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.
- Song of Songs

I’m posting this a few days early, because I know it’s the only chance that my wonderful ladies will get to see it.

    That photo really is the best, isn’t it?

    I loved the two verses you picked out. In fact, I think the second might just do for us…

    Thank you so much for this, it’s really lovely. I’m feeling totally overwhelmed since the wedding but I just wanted to let you know how much this made The Boy and I smile!
