I was a little bummed out on October 18th because it was my last wedding of the year. I decided to put a positive spin on it and give lots of love to Cindy and Barry for their day. Since then, one more wedding has been added to the year, so it worked out for everyone in the end! At the always beautiful Karpeles Manuscript Museum, I met up with Barry as family was pinning his boutineer on. He had a bit of a nervous look on his face, but he explained it was just the thought of people staring at him for so long. I reassured him it would be over soon and before he knew it they would be eating and celebrating with friends. I think he liked that idea. Barry was one of the nicest people I had ever met. He kept checking on me and then apologized for one of the trolley’s, with half the guests and the bride, running late. It was sweet, but I let him know there was no where else I would rather be. I was happy to be a part of his and Cindy’s moment. Soon it was time and we headed up to the front to wait his beautiful bride. Remember when I said how nice Barry was? Well Cindy is the exact same way and together they decided they wanted friends and loved ones at their wedding, but didn’t want to add expenses to anyone’s day, so they decided against a bridal party. Get to go to a wedding and don’t have to buy an expensive dress and dyed shoes? I’ll take it! So the two of them stood up in front of the congregation together and looked into each others eyes. I could tell Barry was a little nervous now. And so could Cindy because she grabbed his hands to comfort him. After their vows, everything got a little lighter as the ceremony ended with a reading of their choice. Oh, The Places You’ll Go, by Dr. Seuss. It was a perfect reading for a perfect couple. Congratulations Barry & Cindy! I’m so glad the internet brought us together and I wish you a lifetime of happiness!!!
