A Wedding Story, TK

The sun has set on our Hawaiian vacation...

Hi guys!!! We are back from Hawaii. It was wonderful, as you might imagine.

Before we chat about the honeymoon, I wanted to share a few posts with some wedding pictures, if you're in the mood. Starting next week! XOXO

We served chocolate flourless cake to all our guests, but we had a small almond flavored cake on display. It was an exact replica of my grandparent's wedding cake. My grandmother even let me borrow her adorable cake topper.

That's them in the photo -- don't they look glamorous?

In Midsummer A Wedding

Now in midsummer a wedding. Attend.
Applaud. The music must be played lightly,
Quietly, at first, like July birdsongs
Hidden in thickets, like sun drying out
The mornings, like grass browsing, dreaming.
Then the words: this man, protecting, serving,
Believing; and this woman, favoring,
Giving, hoping. This family arriving.

Let the music accentuate, arise, float.
Dearly beloved, very dearly beloved,
This act praises and extends us all, as if,
In the afternoon airs, we are all made
Family, as if we are all sun, grass, dreaming.
Now, bells, astound! Ring out aloud, aloft!

--Arnold Kenseth

My uncle read this at the wedding, and it was absolutely perfect. I hoped the day would feel like that and, oh my, did it ever. More soon, probably. XOXO
