Auspicious And Giddy And Free

by Meg Keene, CEO & Editor-In-Chief

I very rarely do this, but you have to go read this guest post by a bride on San Francisco wedding photographer Anna Kuperberg’s blog. You have to. It’s like a wedding graduate post, but from a totally different perspective. It’s well written and wise and true. It sums up a lot of what I’m trying to write about here, in a way I would never quite say it. She says about your wedding day:

You know that daily responsibilities and time and practicality – yes – they have decided together to give you a break on this night and step aside for what is larger: matters of the heart. Against all practical reason, you and your mate have made love the first priority.

Yes. Because you mustn’t take the title of my blog too seriously. In the end, a wedding is about something deeply unpractical, something deep and real and silly and foolish and wonderful and true. Now go read it.
