Oh my gosh!!!!!!! It has been YEARS since I was actually an attendee at a wedding and I just had the time of my life!!!!!
My friend Wendy married her high school sweetheart this past weekend and I was weeping like a baby as I listened to the vows she and her new husband Roger spoke to each other with words almost 30 years in the making.
The tears continued as her “grown up” son spoke from the heart as he welcomed and supported the union. The intimacy, the joy and the connection was felt by EVERY person in the room.
It was truly one of the best ceremonies I have ever been privileged to be a part of, and it was presided over by Wendy’s childhood minister, Rev. Dick Hamlin who’s gentle nature captured the heart of every person in attendance.
Wendy’s “BFF” Jennifer, sang a tribute to friendship as her “Maid of Honor” toast.
Let the dancing begin…with the two most “reluctant”dancers in the room.

1950’s Supper Club
Part of Wendy’s vision was that of a “1950’s” supper club, wherein the “headline” act generally performed as guests enjoyed their dinner. In our scenario….Wendy was the “star” attraction and let me tell you….this bride….who is also a NYC cabaret veteran, brought the house down with her beautiful voice!!!!!
Roger gets a little “PSYCHO” during the cake cutting!
Liz makes a new friend
(and discovers they have about a gazillion mutual friends)
It’s Official….weddings are TONS of FUN!!!!!
Congratulations Wendy and Roger!!!!!
