"Wanna see something that will make you cry?" she asks, my first-born and only daughter, home from college for the first time since she left two months ago.
I think Why does she wanna rip my heart out just minutes after walking through the door? although I have no idea what she wants to share.
She's eager, though, and persists. She already knows how much I'm gonna like it, if I'll just stop cooking dinner long enough to listen.
She begins a tale of six degrees of separation – really, it's only two – and I'm having trouble following anything other than her enthusiasm.
Which itself is lure irresistible.
She opens her laptop, clacks a few keys, grins, takes a step backwards, and says Watch.
She was right…I teared up watching strangers in like and in love.

And with that, I just planned her wedding.
I'm happy to report, dinner was just fine, five minutes later than originally planned.

Robin, I was just having the best time watching this cute video when lo and behold, BAM!, there was Pastor Park, Andy’s childhood pastor who married us! He is the older Pastor in the video! Who are those people? Are they from Birmingham? I think I also saw Beth Park, Mickey Park’s daughter, in the video. Anyway, small world. The wedding was just precious! I know you are LOVING having your girl!
So sweet. The paper lanterns sent me over the edge!
Posted your blog to my sis-in-law in Birmingham…. to get the scoop. She said the bride is Pastor Park’s granddaughter. So fun, small world! That was a treat! http://alisalamb.blogspot.com/2011/09/sixteen-years.html
Alisa, Did you see their post at Green Wedding Shoes? I intentionally did not link to it (which is crazy b/c their information is aleady “out there”) and it tells a little history, too. I’ll post it on your FB page in a few…
Deidra, me, too. I want those for my daughter’s wedding. The one who doesn’t even have a boyfriend yet ;).
Very, very sweet… they seemed incredibly young, don;t you think???
Adorable. I’m still grinning. 🙂
That was THE most awesome wedding video I’ve ever seen! And yes, I teared up too. The look on the groom’s face when he saw the bride is what did it for me.
Wow, what an amazing record of their wedding. And such a beautiful one at that. Just wow. Thanks for sharing what your daughter shared. 😉
Cindy, the ARE young! I was OLD when I got married 😉 :).
Fiddledeedee, HEY STRANGER! I’m still grinning, too! 🙂
Headless Mom, that coupled with the kiss and I’m DONE!
