Taking the Plunge

Wonderful readers: many of you have been reading since the very beginning, over three years ago, when I took the plunge into this public space. You’re great, and perhaps a little crazy, for keeping on reading all this time. Sometimes I ramble, other times I disappear unexpectedly, and yet, you stick around to see what comes next. You’re great like that; thank you.

Today’s a day for thanks of another sort. Today I’ve got a ring on my finger, a wonderful wife, and a weekend full of amazing memories to carry me. D and I are the luckiest people on earth.

Yesterday was an absolutely, positively magical day. If you live in DC, you know that the weather yesterday was as perfect as DC gets. Not a cloud in the sky. Our friends are the most spirited, funny, loving bunch, and we continue to feel about as blessed as two ladies can get. Now, we’re married, and we are simply filled to the brim with joy and blessing.

I guess it just proves some risks are worth taking.

In my day-plus as a married lady, I’ve learned that part of the game is heeding your wife’s requests. I won’t be posting pictures of D. That said, I hope you enjoy the photos I do post, which hopefully will give a taste of how beautiful the day was.

(For all you curious folks out there, I promise more pictures once we have them.)

    A rarity for this blog — the photo really doesn’t do justice . . . . Truly hard to imagine a more joyful event, start to finish. And the parting gifts? Miniature, scrumptious NDPs, of course! The perfect capstone to a perfect day.

  • Elyssa October 18, 2010,

    The pics look amazing! The dress is incredible (I completely understand why you fell in love with it at first sight). So happy for you and D! Btw, Elana, Erika and I made the the pasta from your recent post on Sun night and it was great! See you tonight!

    Sunday was the perfect day for a wedding celebration. Congratulations to the both of you and may you celebrate many, many, many happy years together!

  • DD October 19, 2010,

    So — your words are lovely, the brides are pretty… but I keep checking back to see the wedding cake (and if it is, true to the blog, Not a Derby Pie). More photos?

  • rivka October 20, 2010,

    No cake y’all, no cake. We didn’t want to interrupt dancing to smear fondant on each other’s faces. Instead, we opted for a spread of pastries — apple and lemon tarts, napoleons, mille feuille, macarons in three flavors — and handed out miniature root beer floats and Vernors floats (a tribute to D’s Michigan origins) on the dance floor. We did, however, hand out miniature Not Derby Pies as a favor, and those were quite a hit.

  • Luke October 20, 2010,

    Super-ultimate-number-one-congrats, Rivka! You both looked SO happy and SO fabulous! Many happy returns! (Unless, of course, you wanted all those fondue forks…) 😉
