Let me just say that the bride was lovely, but the horses! The horses were magnificent!

It takes guts for any couple to embark on a life together. All marriages come down to two consenting adults agreeing that life lived shared is better than one apart. The reason the royal wedding resonates may be because we remember the thrill of hope and terror of our own wedding days. That’s a lot of drama packed into just a few hours. If we survive it with any degree of grace, whether we are in front of a justice of the peace in Vegas or the Archbishop of Canterbury in Westminster Abbey, we count ourselves blessed.

It really is very nice of Kate and William to put on this nostalgic yet somehow contemporary pageant for us. We wish them, and all who embrace the grand adventure of marriage, the very best!
