The start of wedded bliss

Because I was traveling back from the wedding, I wasn’t able to tell you how it went until now…

Beautiful. Of course.

The ceremony was outside. In light of the dangerously hot temperatures we’ve been having, that seemed like a risk. New England is notoriously humid, too. Plus… the weather is a bit, um, changeable there. Case in point: at noon on the day of the wedding, the skies opened up and released a deluge, complete with lightning and thunder.

Oh.My.Goodness. 

But – thank you Lord – the day cleared up, and while still humid, the rain released some of the heat from the day.  By the time 6:30 rolled around and the wedding began, it was a very lovely evening.

Even more so the ceremony, which was simple and beautiful and a little unusual… the officiant came around and stood back-to-us just before the exchanging of vows, which meant that for a good portion of the wedding, the bride and groom were facing the audience. Since I was seated at the far end of a row, and hadn’t been able to see ANYTHING when she came down the aisle, it was wonderful that instead of pictures of the backs of their heads, we could see (and photograph) their smiling faces.  And smiling they were. 🙂

Reception followed (mercifully indoors) and a fabulous time was had by all.  Which is just what you want in a wedding!
