Feel the Joy

Anyone contemplating marriage should plan on a day tailored to bring joy to the bride and groom. So many times couples are mired by parents/planners/family who wish to live vicariously through over-the-top and obscenely expensive weddings.

Kudos to this couple. All I could do when I saw this video was smile and dance along. I hope you all do the same.
Forever.

Kathy I couldn't agree with you more. I always feel badly for couples who go into their special day completely stressed out and not very happy. But there are many families who make big demands on the bride/groom and cause much stress. It should be the bride & groom's day to enjoy and celebrate in their way. This video is a fantastic example of that. A total celebration!

Thank you for linking this!

I loved watching this, too. It even brought tears to my eyes like all weddings do. So joyful, so original, so creative! Time for new traditions.

I saw that floating around, it is nifty. I abhor large flashy weddings. Unless its the future Queen of England, of course.

That is the way a wedding should be - fun and joyful.

I'd heard about that but hadn't seen it - thanks for posting it - and your right - it's not about the money or the show - just the love.
