There are no words for this wedding. Every person there felt like sunshine. Happy, full of life. It was an amazing event to be a part of and they ALL made my entire family feel like a part of the celebration. Stella still says she misses Amy.
The week was so much fun when the wedding day actually came, I thought how could it be topped with the amazing rehersal dinner! No worries, because they totally topped it! I’ve never seen a bunch have more fun right until the last Merle Haggard song.
My favorite part of the wedding was a suprise to us all. The pastor recited a poem that I have held dear for ages and it could not have been a more magical, emotional moment. Anyone else love this poem by e.e. cummings? I think I’ve actually shared it hear before.
i carry your heart with me
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
sigh…Isn’t it wonderful…
I’m going to share more of the day after session soon. So stay tuned!
