There are so many emotions entwined in a wedding day: joy and sentiment wrap themselves around every fine detail and loving face. It’s a heaven of eager hands, belly laughs, and happy tears; it’s a time to rest in the certainty of life ahead, to feel at home in the delight and brimming promise of it all — and yes, to perhaps play home to a few excited butterflies! There’s an exquisite magic about it, knowing full well the weight of the hours ahead and breathlessly waiting at the windows of anticipation. But too well, we allow ourselves to get caught in the flurry of the day, and forget to simply feel it.
To this, I present a thought: take the time. Slow down. Rest in that emotion awhile, memorize its rooms and windows and when the time comes, pick up your train, check your makeup in the mirror by the door, and step out into your new forever.
Your heart will thank you.
