“I promise that I will frustrate you, and I promise that I will be there”
This was a vow that has really stuck with me – funny and honest. Which is something I absolutely love about Val and Jon – they are bitingly funny, enjoy being silly, but ultimately are very honest with those around them and with each other. Rarely am I so happy for two people to have found each other, but Val and Jon’s wedding at Willowdale Estate was lovely, loving, and a really fun time.
There was dancing (both classical ballroom and some vintage Michael Jackson moves), there were warm chocolate chip cookies, there was sun, and cheese, and laughter. And I couldn’t imagine a happier way to celebrate this union.
Yes, marriage brings frustrations. Along with all the good stuff, there will be silly fights and 10 feet of snow to shovel (a tough winter for Massachusetts!), but a promise to be there for the other is a strong barrier against the chaos of a lonely world, and shoveling is easier with company.
