A quintessential yellow taxi sets the stage as the bride and groom stroll the streets on their wedding day.
Last night, I dreamt that I was standing in my childhood bedroom. It was the morning of my wedding, and I looked out the window at the front lawn. My eyes met gray skies and sheets of rain. It’s raining on my wedding day, and raining hard. Just as this thought occurred to me consciously, the rain stopped and the grey-black clouds parted. As if the force of my will took away the rain, and made instead clear blue skies – Melissa
Melissa and Arran were due to wed at a local community garden, however, the garden canceled the night before their wedding due to a hurricane warning. Their reception site quickly swooped in to save the day by making last-minute ceremony accommodations.
