That time you gathered your friends and family from near and far and promised to challenge each other, and your loved ones smiled and watched and listened.
That time you cried when you said your vows.
And also the moment you were about to exchange rings, and you turned to your best man and said, “Can I have those rings now.” And everyone laughed.
And your mother walked you down the aisle. And your father gave a toast from a little silver cup with the finest of Scotch.
And then finally you danced to the BeeGees. And Louis Armstrong. And the Beatles.
And everyone sang along to Sweet Caroline.
Cigars and a giant flask, and a perfect New England night in a big old house on the Cape.
*a scottish toast*
May the best ye’ve ever seen
Be the worst ye’ll ever see
May a moose ne’er leave yer girnal
Wi’ a tear drap in his e’e
May ye aye keep hale an’ he’rty
Till ye’re auld eneuch tae dee
May ye aye be jist as happy
As we wish ye aye tae be
