four years ago today: our wadee

june 17, 2006

i thank you God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

e.e.cummings

it was on this very day four years ago that i married my heart's true companion and love, kevin...


the day of celebration was at the home of our dear family friends.  it is the most lovely spot, a vintage farmhouse on a terraced hillside surrounded by vineyards...


it was an incredibly beautiful june day in napa.  plenty of blue skies, rolling hills, vineyards, flowers, and sunshine.

did i mention sunshine?  oh, we had sunshine.  so much sunshine that it was crazy super roasty toasty hot, above ninety degrees until dusk.

it was so hot my hair flower wilted and had to be replaced thrice...


i spent the morning getting ready...




my best friends in the universe were there to help me...


kevwrex and his brother had time to hang out before the ceremony...


the ceremony was simple and full of poetry, beautiful music, and love...




after the ceremony, my beau-pere used eloquent and heartfelt words to toast us...



and then there were a gazillion sparkling moments!

three special glimpses:

spontaneous singing...


a fairy fort built with parasols...



a poignant and unforgettable dance with my father...


and of course, there was so much marvelous merrymaking into the magical summer night.

at the end, we looked down over all of it and felt more love than ever before...


and it just keeps growing.

i love you kevwrex!
