A real joy for me was reading Dana's journal entries about her growing love and awareness of the depth and power of her relationship with Jeff. She is a wonderful writer and that she let her words be known by her friends and family was a gift to us all.
We blessed their marriage with these words, "As together you build a new life and a new home, may that home be bright with the laughter of children and of many friends; may it be a haven from the tension of our times and a wellspring of strength; and in all the world may it be the one place you most want to be."
I so respected that they framed their ceremony with just what was important to them, including only family and close friends into this intimate ceremony. They spent about an hour visiting with friends and family after the ceremony and then all of them went to a restaurant called Tuscan Blu In Raleigh for their reception, most of them piling into a huge limousine parked outside the house.
They were a treat to know and to celebrate! I wish them lots and lots of love.
