A Long and Beautiful Wedding (The Journey)

Meg over at apracticalwedding.com wrote this bit of genius today:

Do you know that in Judaism, your wedding starts the moment that you get engaged, and only ends a year after your wedding? I love this, because for me the process has been so enlightening, and the journey is perhaps as important as the destination.
What a beautiful concept!

Our wedding has already begun, with the gathering of family and friends to celebrate our engagement and to plan pre-ceremony showers and post-ceremony reception festivities.

And our wedding will continue long after the rice is swept away, as we open gifts, nest in our home, and enjoy each other’s company.

I feel like I can finally take a deep breath, for the first time in a very long time. Thank you, Meg, for reminding us what it’s all about.
