I was very happy for Joanna and Romain, especially happy that we made it in time and she didn't miss the beautiful wedding of her dreams! May their life be fulfilled with each other's company and may they grow old and happy together.
I like what their minister said: "...a marriage starts with the vows that you speak." I absolutely agree with that!
I would add that marriage is not a ritual or an end in itself, but a long, intricate, intimate dance together and nothing matters more than your own sense of balance and choice of partner.
May both our weddings be lasting unions, because there is nothing more lovely in life than the union of two people whose love for one another has grown thought the years -- from the small acorn of passion into a great rooted tree of deep love.
