There is a certain joy in being the minister when your friends get married. Last weekend I was the officiant for my sweet friend Theresa and her husband Steve. She and I worked together for many years and have kept in touch since she moved away. And being part of her wedding was incredible.
First, her family! Oh my goodness, what a joy! Her mother is Italian and the family poured in from across the states. I fell in love with them immediately and enjoyed every minute with them.
Second, the food! When Italians gather, they eat. And eat. And even the non-Italians joined in for the food and fellowship. This is how weddings should be, friends! We gathered at least twice a day throughout the weekend to eat and drink and talk and laugh.
And lastly, the love! I can’t even put it into words, so I’ll share some pictures here. My friend Libby McGowan was the photographer, and she’s good…check her out here. Congratulations, Theresa and Steve!
