The Wedding Party

We got married yesterday.

It was a lovely affair, in a villa in Tuscany.

The last time I got married it was in a hotel in Montreal.

There were 250 guests, of which 200 or so were business clients of my soon to be (and later soon to be ex) father-in-law.

There was food, a band, dancing and it was over.

You don’t get many chances to learn from your mistakes in life, but I learned from that one.

This time, we rented a villa in Tuscany for a week and flew in 40 or so of our closest friends and relatives for a week long celebration. It was less wedding and more commune. Last night, it culminated in a lovely service conduced by the only woman reform Rabbi in Italy.

Speeches, a fantastic Tuscan meal and local Italian music and dancing all night long.

Live and learn.

We are off for a few weeks of R&R in Italy, France and England.

But I have made sure we have broadband wherever we go.

  12. i happened upon this post while looking for the correct spelling of millie grazie, or grazie millie as i had forgotten my italian from when i lived in milan. i found myself so drawn in by the wedding celebration, that it was your second one–that you learned so much from the first one (as did i…) so good for you and your lovely bride, may you forever find yourselves drawn to each other’s love and appreciation of this union. marriage is a wonderful way to commune with your Other Half, one you know who that Other Half really is…
