One word: WOW! In an effort to locate the appropriate adjectives to describe Melanie and Abhi’s wedding weekend, I can not help but simply want to sum it up with- WOW! We have been planning this BIG DAY, right along with Mel and Abhi, for so long and I had so many ideas of what it was going to be like, look like, feel like, taste like, smell like… and well my imagination couldn’t cut it! As I absorbed everything that was taking place I couldn’t help but put myself in so many of the little girls shoes…. I kept hearing, ‘Melanie, she thinks you are a princess’ from their mommies. Melanie was a princess indeed! And Abhi made for quite the fitting Prince/King! So call me a emotional sap, or just plain silly for including this… but this post would not be complete without the appropriate introduction… (and If you could just pretend for two seconds that I was sitting right next to you at your computer belting this at the top of my lungs… that would be about how it is being delivered from the other end of the keyboard:)
‘I can show you the world.
Shining, shimmering, splendid!
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?
I can open your eyes.
Take you wonder by wonder!
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride!
A whole new world!
A new fantastic point of view!
No one to tell us no or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming!’
Melanie and Abhi’s Wedding was a dream straight from the fairytales of my childhood and being a part of the 3 days associated with their union was an absolute honor. Even in the midst of Hurricane Sandy’s wrath on the East Coast Shore… Their wedding shined brighter than the sun! So Bright in fact- We decided because there are so many rocking awesome images we will be splitting the posting in two parts… for optimal presentation! So without further adieu here is Part 1.
