YellowBird Wedding

because simple is beautiful

I love marrying people I know. And on August 19th, at O’Brien’s Sleepy Hollow, I was able to marry someone I’ve know since I was a little girl. Hilary and I haven’t kept in touch over the years, but our dad’s are best buds, so when we were young we saw each other all the time, at baseball games, at house parties, at moments where our dad’s told awful jokes and stole our noses. So that creates a hell of a bond! So I was honored when she contacted me after all these years and asked me to officiate her wedding. It was a beautiful day, and I was happy to see Bill looking excited and nervous out in the sunshine. It was also nice to see my dad as a guest, hanging out with Hilary’s father. Especially since her dad was at my wedding just a week earlier. It felt like a real family event!
Hilary was hiding in the back and she definitely looked beautiful and ready to start the show! As guests took their seats, Bill and I made our way to the front to await Hilary’s arrival. Soon enough she was on her dad’s arm, making her way down the aisle as they both fought back tears. Bill is the kind of guy who wouldn’t necessarily want to cry at a wedding. And they both really kept it together…until the end that is! At one point I asked them to look into one another’s eyes, and Bill’s eyes started to get wet, which brought the tears down Hilary’s face. I love those moments! It was honest and beautiful and I’m so lucky to have had a front row seat. Congratulations William and Hilary! You’re perfect for each other and may your life be filled with more baseball and love than you can handle.

Rick & my dad!
