Simple Sundays | Scenes from a Wedding
I was mopping the floor on early Friday evening when the doorbell rang. As my husband and I both approached the door, I could hear a familiar tune playing on the other side. An a cappella recording from my college days (Have I mentioned I used to sing? My sister likes to remind me.) grew louder and we knew in an instant. My sister and new brother in law were there!
We flung the door open, and sure enough, they were on the doorstep. What a wonderful surprise!
Almost a week after the wedding, I found myself still teary with emotion. I would get weepy at the most funny times – I found myself wiping away tears as I ran at the gym, watching the Chinese women’s synchronized swimming team win the Silver medal at the London Olympics. Friends reassured me that all this emotion was normal, after the wedding of my sister. I did not expect it at all, but I must say, having a surprise visit was much needed.
They stayed the whole weekend, and it was wonderful to have this time with them. The kids loved playing with their aunt and new uncle, and we spent the weekend cooking old favorites and chatting over glasses of wine and candlelight. It was hard to say good bye as they drove off to begin their new life together in San Diego.
I thought you might enjoy some pictures from their beautiful wedding, so I posted some shots that I was able to capture on my other site, where I try to highlight my non-food photography. Click here to see the beauty from one week ago. But before you go, here is my sister’s favorite drink, as featured at their wedding.
