The wedding was held nearby, at a place (in the Columbia Gorge), called "Bridal Veil Lakes". It is set up for weddings, though their brochure says they are available for all occasions. Said brochure ONLY has wedding photos, however. I would certainly think this would be a wonderful place for a family reunion, too. There are canoes that one can use on the lake, too, though none of us took advantage of that. We should have, though.
The wedding was for one of our neighbor's kids...Adam Cohen. He and our Adam grew up together and were pretty good friends. It was weird for Adam to think of one of his friends getting married, though. He's not even close to being there.
The groom's parents, Jaimie and Sherry Cohen, are pictured here, with their son. They are the best sort of neighbors, fun, interesting, involved in the neighborhood, and they keep their house and garden looking just beautiful.
The bride and groom seemed totally besotted with each other...pretty good for having been together for almost 4 years already. Everyone who knew them both testified to the fact that they were totally devoted to each other's happiness. One of the relatives said, "To find one's soulmate so early in life is a blessing indeed." And everyone seemed to agree with that, too.
As we were driving home last night, the sky was perfect and one of the planets was so big and bright in front of us. Then, we saw the moon, as big and as yellow as I have seen it. Life seemed pretty perfect then. I enjoyed witnessing such a happy event and then being able to drive through a perfect night, with some of the people I loved the most sitting with me. Blessings to all...
