I got this amazing email from reader Stephanie, which I’m going to keep in mind as I ponder things like what to wear on my head, or our seating chart, or guest list issues, or all the little details. Because in the end, I just don’t think those details will be what I experience or what I remember….
The logistics may have set the mood, but nothing could prepare me for the energy and the vibe that followed. It was all about the people, our friends and family, about our dog chasing her tail in the middle of a packed living room/dance floor to Kenny Loggins’ Footloose, about my new husband spontaneously switching the iPod to our favorite song and asking me to dance and our friends singing along, serenading us. The entire day was more than I ever could have imagined. I was buoyed by Love, humbled by the kindness and generosity of friends and family, and continuously smitten by the magic of it all.
So thank you Stephanie. Your words are like a deep breath of air.
