Beyond the Book: A WEDDING
I'M SO SORRY I SAID THAT IN MY TOAST--what I was trying to say was that everyone in the world is bad except for you and Gabriel. <3 <3 <3 Best wedding ever!!
Please keep talking about it - no apologies! Hearing about a day of sheer joy is something all of us need more of in these times.
Love, love, and more love. 💜
"Should I stop and get us lattes? Or am I trippin?" I love this so much. Keep talking about the wedding. Bring us all the joy!
so beautiful! i cried when i read about your sons: speaking, crying, celebrating, performing. and YES! that dress - oh my! and you in it - absolutely gorgeous AND glowing! And I agree, please keep talking/writing about it. i'm not usually a big fan of 'wedding stories' - but yours is unique and magical 💜💙
You achieved exactly what you intended. Everything about your wedding was wonderful and it was exactly the right mix of organized and relaxed. It was ADHD-friendly in that my daughter and I were 30 minutes late but got there in time for most of the ceremony. lol
You and Gabriel were gorgeous. The setting, the decorations and the other guests were a feast for my eyes. All of the food was delicious, the toasts were all sweet and/or funny, the music was great, he dancing was fun. Even the weather was perfect. I haven't had such a good time at a wedding since my own! We were sorry to have to leave earlier than we planned, but a health issue arose. Hope your honeymoon trip goes as well as your wedding did, and that you both get to just relax and be awesome together!
Ijeoma, your dress is gorgeous and fabulous and just perfection.
Thank you for this glimpse into your beautiful day. Joy and delight to all of you!
I will read every word you write about your wedding. I've never been married and my partner and I have been happily unmarried for nearly 31 years, but I love weddings and this one seems like the best ever so please just write away!
Love your love! Keep talking about it, please. Truly, love and joy are what we all need more of these days.
This made me happy cry, thanks for sharing ♡
I would really love to hear some sample lyrics from a blues song about wearing a retainer. Sounds like a talented kid.
Congratulations to the whole family!
Such a lovely joyful post! You both look so happy and this brought us all a few tears too!
I am so happy that you had such a wonderful celebration! Talk about it for the next 40 years, I’m all ears. Hope the honeymoon is all it needs to be!
I love it! Sister I.J., thanks for sharing your special day with us via email. Wishing y'all the best of married life! Congratulations!
