You know when that first day Fall shows up after an extra warm summer? Beth and Brad were so lucky to have their wedding day happen on that same day.
I remember driving up to the venue and my mouth hit the floor of my car. The brick house, wooded lot, magnolia trees and a sailcloth tent being pitched. It was perfection. But the beauty of the day was far surpassed by the emotion of the day. Her Mom squeezing her so hard after she buttoned up the back of her dress. Beth's Dad helping Brad with his tie. Brad's tears when he turned around to see Beth for the first time. The laugher that roared from the boys as they entertained them and myself, especially from Brad and his Best Man brother. The officiant, who is a Brother-in-law to the couple that couldn't speak for tears.
These are the best kind of days.
