The place was lovely.
Filled with that happiness buzz
that comes when friends, both old and new, gather.
It was celebration time!
We came to 
rejoice with two friends who've loved, 
and tenderly loved again.
They remind us that struggle and heartache
can soften us.
Prepare us.
Provide for us in ways that are unforeseen.
Almost unimaginable.

We ate and chatted and hugged and toasted.
They exchanged vows
in front of the fire, amidst the sunflowers and
surrounded friends and family.
Friends and family whose faithfulness
has surmounted obstacles,
forgiven hurts,
held on during the storms
cherished the countless blessings that fill the in-betweens.
There was music.
Lots of it.
And laughter.

And then,
when all was almost said and done,
the groom took the mike
and sang to his bride...
Another crooner took over
and there was holding. And twirling.
Swoon worthy.
Yes indeed.
Congratulations, dear friends.

"Some day, when I'm awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight

Yes, you're lovely
With your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you
And the way you look tonight"
