Yesterday, two of my best friends got married. I got to be in their wedding, along with a bunch of other good friends. And it was amazing. I watched the video after they had their kiss and they just looked so stinkin’ much in love. Jessica just had this “I can’t believe this is happening” look and Michael was just grinning from ear to ear. And then he reached out for Gwen’s hand (Jessica’s daughter) and the three of them walked down the aisle together. It was the most precious video. During the ceremony, Michael knealt and asked Gwen if he could be her daddy and how he promised to protect her and provide for her forever. I think he had the whole room in tears.
The reception was great fun, too, even though there weren’t enough seats at the table for the whole wedding party and I ended up sharing a chair with one of the other bridesmaids the whole time. We danced a lot, and they cut the cake, and threw the bouquet and garter, and in the middle of it all the guys and I were running outside to “decorate” the car. And then they pulled away and it was all over. We were left standing there on the sidewalk, exhausted beyond all reason, but aware that something really special had just happened.
I can’t wait till my day. I have a feeling it will be an amazing day. 🙂
