June 18, 2011, Irvington, VA: And then we were married! Friends traveled to the celebration from faraway places like Hong Kong and Guatemala. Family came in from Santa Barbara and Minneapolis and Manhattan and Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and Marrion, Illinois. We celebrated more than the wedding; we celebrated each other’s birthdays and engagements. We celebrated each other’s first Father’s Day and first Grandfather’s Days. We shared laughs on the wide planked hardwood floors painted in pale green and white checkers. We drank lemonade from mason jars and posed for photographs in gardens exploding with color around the yellow former schoolhouse. We pedaled country roads together on beach cruiser bicycles. We danced! And we were whisked away in a hunter green pickup truck, Just Married.
Words cannot describe. It was everything and more.
