best nine: vol. 5

personal, weddings

My one stipulation of taking my contract with Desperate Measures was an out on June 2nd, our third preview, to attend the wedding of my two friends Alexandra and Chris in Pennsylvania.

It’s typically unheard of for a supervisor to miss a performance during previews, but I was lucky to have an amazing friend and colleague in my GM Brian, and my designer Nicole Wee, who very quickly assured me I could use a sub without a hitch. It was also a blessing that my close friend Maggie Luther had previously supervised the show in an earlier incarnation, and already knew it well.

I rented a Zipcar and drove with my pal Holly down to Fiddle Lake Farm, where I attended the best wedding I have ever been to (sorry everyone – your weddings were still great, but this was actually perfect). From the drinks named after their two cats, to the bluegrass trio, to ice cream sandwiches as you walked in, to the vintage hankies basket next to the entrance (for all the tears we cried over the beautiful ceremony), to the food, to the bonfire and s’mores at the end – I could go on and on about how endlessly wonderful the entire celebration was. It was a proper tribute to two souls perfectly made for one another to celebrate their love with their people. Alexandra and Chris’s love is inspiring.

Despite the fact that I am ugly crying and laughing in this photo, it encapsulates June 2nd – which will forever remain one of my favorite days.

  1. Sage advice I received years ago from pastor and good friend Craig Bates…” A wedding is a day; a marriage is a lifetime.” All bridezillas ( and groomzillas too) who freak over trivial details no one will notice on “ their” day, or those who spend $$$ they don’t have to impress people they don’t really like…need to heed this advice and learn from the experience of attending a wedding without over-the-top cigar bars and gushing chocolate fountains…or whatever add-on was worth a second mortgage…to the fact that two people celebrated their love and commitment in a celebration marked with understated elegance that made an indelible impression!

  2. I am really inspired along with your writing abilities as smartly as with the format
    in your weblog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you customize
    it your self? Either way stay up the excellent quality writing, it is uncommon to look a nice weblog like this one today..
