I knew within 2 minutes of meeting Meghan and Jeff that we would get along splendidly. We met at an ice cream shop and it’s well known that ice cream makes everything awesome. Then we found out that we have a distant familial connection revolving around bagels. Then we discovered a shared love of all of the best nerdy things. So yeah, they’re definitely my people.
Their College of Physicians Wedding was a reflection of them - focused on their connection, calm in the face of adversity, classically elegant with a hint of nerdiness, and deeply appreciative of donuts.
Like I said - my people.
How do you know you're marrying the right person? I think that's something a lot of people have asked themselves.
Here's one way to know - you wear the wrong pants to see your future wife for the first time on your wedding day, and after the initial happiness of seeing each other wears off, she just laughs at you while shaking her head.
Other signs of right-person-ness: a day filled with the people you love, lots of laughs, an awesome place like Holly Hedge, and the feeling of inevitability, like of course this HAS to happen.
Kari + Jon had all of that at their wedding. Especially the pants.
I have a plot for a book. In this book, a girl named Lynsay is married to a boy named Brad. They have one kid and another on the way when Brad is tragically, awfully, infuriatingly killed while working as a police officer.
The next part of the book is as hard and difficult as you'd imagine. Lynsay is strong. Stronger than she probably realized. Stronger than anyone should ever need to be.
But then.... Lynsay and Mike meet. Mike's a police officer too. They get to know each other. Mike is a man of true character and many muscles. They fall in love. Mike and Lynsay make a life together with two kids and more dogs than I can keep track of. Brad and his family are very much a part of that life.
They decide it's the real deal. Mike is traditional and asks for Lynsay's father's blessing. Mike is a man of honor and also asks for Brad's father's blessing.
These 2 incredible people and 3 amazing families get married on a gray rainy day at Springfield Country Club. Some people might be bothered by the rain, but not Lynsay and Mike. They know what's really important.
I haven't finished the book yet, but I'm hoping the next chapters are filled with decades of laughter and love.
