IMG_0031(our rehearsal dinner was a talent show.  it was unbelievably cool.)

The official pictures are here. I have never been a woman who thought or said hyperbolically, "my wedding will be the BEST day of my LIFE!!!!!!"  That's why it feels funny to admit that the entire weekend had me smitten indescribably-in-awe ... and it actually was one of the most memorable times in my life (and hear me out...it's got A LOT to compete with).   It wasn't just the strength of our love that had me, it was the ineffable feeling of support and love and joy seeping from every corner of every room and every tree and every single person who graced us with their presence.  It wasn't just a union between me and W.  It was a celebration of all that is good in the world---shared by all of my favorite people in the world.  That is what love is to me.  And this wedding was pure love. I will not dirty this image feast by saying too much; I think the pictures speak for themselves. (we'll start with the rehearsal dinner and pre-wedding.  there are sooooo many awesome photos, I will do my best to share some of my favorites here.  lookout tomorrow, for more of the wedding) [caption id="attachment_1185" align="aligncenter" width="200" caption="Ummmmmmmmmm"]IMG_0270[/caption]
