Dina and Richard hosted an intimate party for their wedding ceremony yesterday at the Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster, Massachusetts. If you haven't been to this resort inn on Cape Cod, you must visit; one feels transported to the pleasures of past generations while walking its hallways and foyers. Family themes pervade the inn, with portraits and photos of its benefactors and guests gracing the walls of its mansion. Black and white photos of family fun on the ocean edge line its halls, lit by a sparkling chandelier that illuminates the beautiful ornately crafted, wooden railings leading up to custom sitting and dining rooms.
Dina and Richard had their close family members by their side as they exchanged their vows to one another on the balcony overlooking the distant blue sea; her mom and his son and daughter participated in this custom service. Tears of love and happiness flowed as Dina spoke her vows to Richard on the terrace. The laughter reappeared, however, when Dina and Richard exchanged rings and I declared them to be "husband and wife".
May you have a wonderful and full life together, Dina and Richard and may your family always be as close as they were today in celebration of your partnership.
Congratulations Dina and Richard!
