The vows. I think that is an under noticed part of a wedding. Rachel and Brian’s vows were impossible not to take serious note of. I should have known from the beginning it would be this way. Both Rachel and Brian are extremely intelligent, intentional and mindful humans. Everyone I have talked to about them would say the same thing. As silly as it might seem, the first thing to catch my attention in their vows was when both of them said that they do not take marriage lightly. That they were not planning, pursuing marriage, but fell in love. They found in each other their counterpart, with which they built a life. A life of intention and joy. They support each other, pursue each other, encourage each other, and bring light into each other’s lives. They realized that they did not want to live without the other. Or perhaps more so that they really wanted to live in that space of love for the rest of their lives. So here were are. Rachel and Brian got married and it was awesome!
The day was exactly how it should be. It was a bunch of people whom they loved pouring their hearts out to celebrate. At every turn there was joy. Drinking, eating, being merry, all followed by an epic start to Karaoke by Rachel and the whole crowd on their feet due to it. It was a party and a dang good one at that. With good food and lots of wine thanks to Balistreri Vineyards and even vegan donuts from Voodoo Donuts, everyone had a blast. It was the kind of party that nobody wanted to stop.
I am so happy that Brian and Rachel were so well celebrated. This was a day for two people who give a lot to others and put them in the forefront to realize and understand how deeply loved they are by one another and by all their friends and family. I was so happy to be a part of it! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Adler!
