They were seated at the reception. Facing the dance floor. Not at a head table or sweetheart table — but at a family table. With the people they love most in this world. Their parents. Their brother. Their sisters. His father stood next to his mother. Holding the microphone in his hand. Looking around at the hundreds of faces that’d made the trip from the Northeast to the desert to celebrate his son… and new daughter.
it starts with humility
Marissa and Jeff, it seems like years ago that we first Skyped with you from Phoenix to your New York apartment. Then we blinked, and it was your wedding day, and oh, what a day it was. Thank you, from the bottom of our heart, for your caring, kindness and thoughtfulness throughout the process, but especially on the wedding day. You two are every bit as good as Jeff’s dad described… and more. We love you. Here are some of our favorite highlights this weekend. We hope you get to enjoy them by the pool on your mini-moon.
