Congratulations, Jake and Shira!

May 3, 2010

We spent this weekend in Philadelphia, celebrating with Jake and Shira.  Jake is one of Scott’s oldest friends, and their wedding was one of the happiest I have ever seen.  They were both beaming, sporting the biggest smiles imaginable.  The events themselves, the rehearsal dinner and wedding, were extremely fun with good food and lots of dancing, but the most striking part was the warmth that everyone felt.  The families were upbeat and happy, and I think Jake and Shira could have had a blast just their own, with the eyes they were making at each other.  There was just not a single second of self-consciousness or doubt.

As we embark upon wedding season (it started a little last year, but we have six weddings in the next year or so), it’s fun to see the different personalities of each couple and each celebration. With everything that’s going on in the world (I know this sounds so dramatic, but I think it’s true) it’s nice to be able to go to such pure, happy events.
