I’ve been idly searching for a quote that fits our wedding… something that sums up our feelings that it isn’t all about the flash, but about gather people close to us and celebrating our wedding, our union together as we see fit.
This quote is… breathtakingly perfect:
“The wedding was very much like other weddings, where the parties have no taste for finery or parade, and Mrs. Elton, from the particulars detailed by her husband thought it all extremely shabby, and very inferior to her own. “Very little white satin, very few lace veils; a most pitiful business.”
But, in spite of these deficiencies, the wishes, the hopes, the predictions, the confidences of the small band of true friends who witnessed the ceremony were fully answered in the perfect happiness of the union.” – Jane Austen, from Emma
