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 maybe 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!

“The reason the royal wedding resonates may be because we remember the thrill of hope and terror of our own wedding days.”
Yep! I watched (and, admittedly, am still watching… I’m fascinated with the culture of it) for a couple reasons. One being I was curious about the details. But, much like my own wedding, the details are only part of why I watched. My main reason was to see Kate (sorry, Duchess Catherine) and William. Weddings for me are much more than the details (dress, flowers, centerpieces). I want to see intimacy. I want to see “moments.” And I saw several. There were a few during the ceremony… looks, smiles, trying to hold smiles in a few times. But it was during the carriage ride to the Palace that I saw those “moments.” The ease in which they talked, smiled, just were there, waving to the many on the street. It left me wanting to learn more about the couple. Not the Prince and Princess, but Kate and Wills.
I wish them nothing but the best. Marriage can be challenging in general. Add to that the pressure of being a Royal… I hope they can maintain a sense of privacy within their relationship.
Now, how about the pictures of the bridesmaid (I love that the little girls were “bridesmaids”) pouting on the balcony? 🙂
