The music was playing: the bride and her father stood before two glass window pane doors as the wedding planner stood ready to open them. Those few moments seemed to last forever. The bride glanced at her father in sentimental expectation of the moments that were coming ahead. Then she glanced at me... and the tears welled up.

My best friend was getting married.

The emotion hit and bubbled up like a boiling pot about to overflow. As I saw the same emotion begin to rise in the, up to that point - very calm, Anna, I turned away. No time to make the bride a bubbling mess. We focused on the doors and the cue came.

She was becoming a bride... the new Mrs. Rickey Dawson.

She was beautiful, and he was so excited that he was literally dancing as she came down the aisle ( not exaggerating, he was literally dancing! ).

This day was sweet and beautiful: filled with love and family. It was her day. That was all I could say throughout the entire day, it was perfect.
