Emily & Dan reminded me of my family in so many ways.
#1. My sister's name is Emily.
#2. My sister is a teacher, just like Emily.
#3. My sister's husband's name is Dan.
#4. My parents' wedding colors were yellow & blue.
#5. My mom let her bridesmaid have free choice of the dress.
#6. My aunt (the bridesmaid) made her own dress, as she is an excellent seamstress (as is Deb, Emily's Mom).
Anyways, all these little facts made me nostalgic. But this blog post isn't about my parents' wedding, or even my sister. This is about THIS Dan & Emily.
Last Saturday this lovely couple got married in Redwood Falls at Cornerstone Christian Church. They chose people really dear to them to be in their wedding party: close friends from their congregation, fellow teachers, family members. The love in that group was tangible.
Congratulations, Dan & Emily. I wish you many, many decades together!
