the dinosaurs wed today, in such a simple and heart-felt ceremony.
intimate and dainty, the whole night was stress-free (esp for the couple–i hear the bride got up at 2 pm) and easy. food was delish and the music well put together–no blaring liveband, no microphone problems (no microphone!), no hiccups, just a very romantic night with friends & family.

The Passionate Shepherd to His Love
By Christopher Marlowe
Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That valleys, groves, hills, and fields,
Woods or steepy mountain yields.
And we will sit upon the rocks,
Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow rivers to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.
And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;
A gown made of the finest wool
Which from our pretty lambs we pull;
Fair lined slippers for the cold,
With buckles of th purest gold;
A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs:
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me and be my love.
The shepherds’ swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May morning:
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.
i’m truly happy for them, for the loving tenderness they show to each other, and the rootedness they have found in each other.
