This July 20th, above the orchards of Hood River Valley:
the sun was hot, the breeze strong & the snow-topped volcano magnificent
the high school/college/band/book club friends were solid, the family extended
the sounds played metallic, artfully chosen, one brother at each side
the vows were fitting, the ceremony refreshingly un-perfect
the food was outstanding, the dinner speeches short, the cake kitty-topped, the dancing playlist superb & the relief...tangible.
Congratulations Hilary & Justin! Here's to a real pair (until you both die.)
