The Memories Of The Wedding Belong To Everyone

Other cool stuff we should know about

Two nights before the wedding, all of our guests met at a North Shore bar where a local four-piece band was playing. Toward the end of their set they broke out with “Land Down Under” by Men at Work, not knowing that there was a considerable contingent of Aussies in the back corner. It brought down the house. By the end of the night, Jared’s friends had pitched in and hired them for the wedding as a gift to us. That after-dinner playlist we had so carefully crafted? It never got played, but I can’t say I’m sorry. Everything really came together in the end, and at the risk of sounding cheesy, it was so close to perfect nothing else mattered. A few weeks after the wedding, when I got in the car after work, “Land Down Under” was playing on the radio and I surprised myself by bursting into happy tears. I realized then that what we now have is a shared memory with all of the people who were there. The major memory triggers from the whole experience aren’t just mine; they belong to every person who was a part of it. And that will bring me to the brink of happy tears every single time.
