We’re In This Together


by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Were In This Together | A Practical WeddingThey are up, they are up! Peony has put up the first of many pictures of her stunningly beautiful wedding. You all must go look, right away. There are so many nice things you could say about this wedding, about how it was stylish, super-budget and chic, but really, no one should talk about anything but the radiant joy on their faces. Cara said, “The small details that we spend so long thinking about really faded into nothingness on the day. ” Amen. May it be so.

As for me, I am winging my way down to Los Angeles for a very informal little engagement party in my parents delightful backyard, and then some time by the pool. Thank you for all your support this week, in comments and emails. Rebecca gave such excellent perspective on weddings and life when she said, “we all have to nurse some grief about losing our concept of how we hoped things would be and making the most of how things will have to be.”

You are a fantastic bunch. Much more to come next week.
