Last night I went to the wedding of two very good friends of mine [livejournal.com profile] being_bec and [livejournal.com profile] laza_burnz. Words, really, feel inadequate to express how wonderful and beautiful the wedding was.

I could go on with a blow-by-blow of the wedding, telling people exactly what happened, but honestly, the details weren't relevant (although I will say that I found the heavy focus on tolerance and love during the ceremony itself absolutely wonderful). But throughout the entire wedding, from start to finish, you could feel the love and wonder. From the celebrant honestly enjoying every step of the ritual, the merging of Jewish and Christian traditions (and the explanation of the symbology behind everything), to the look of absolutely joy on the faces of the bride and groom... I felt on the verge of tears throughout a goodly amount of that wedding night.

It was a wonderful salve for the soul. With me having been so emotional all week, I guess it was inevitable that I'd feel so much more at this wedding, but I'm honestly glad I did. There was just a magic in the air. "I'll stand by you" as the first song, the wonderfully silly but honestly touching story [livejournal.com profile] being_bec's father told of the Magic Pancake Maker from Bec's childhood knowing he wasn't needed anymore because she had found someone who would take care of her as she needed for her life, the absolutely wonderful venue at Overnewton Castle... Every part of the wedding just shone in it's own way.

I'm going to end this post with one last note - I wish [livejournal.com profile] being_bec and [livejournal.com profile] laza_burnz the best of luck in their marriage, although I'm not sure they'll ever need it. I would also, just because I'm feeling that sooky, would like the wish the same once more for all the marriages that I have attended in the past years. To Daniel and Rhiannon Heath, Hannah and Miles Langmead, Jenni and David Allen, Melanie and Matthew Weatherson, Aaron and Emma Braegen, not to mention all those couples who have married that I haven't mentioned here, I wish each and every one of you everything you want and need in your marriage and in your lives. I love each and every one of you, and hope your love lives within you for as long as you so desire.
