Clarence and Anita’s big day was EVERYTHING I love about weddings.  First of all, working with Clarence and Anita has been an absolute joy.  They are genuine, thoughtful and all-around amazing people (check out Clarence’s incredible organization, TinyGive, which is dedicated to charitable giving and online activism!).  Thus, I was not surprised that when Wale and I showed up on their wedding day, we were greeted with big smiles, hugs, and lots of warmth.  Anita and Clarence’s friends and family members seem to be just as amazing as the newlyweds themselves.  Everyone was super sweet, quick to break into HUGE smiles, and just absolutely joyful.  And I can understand why.  Clarence and Anita make an amazing pair.  Together, I’m pretty sure they are going to conquer the world and do it with lots of humanity and intelligence.  Oh, and they are going to make some seriously cute babies.  Congratulations, newlyweds, and welcome home from Hawaii!!!

One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is when the bride and groom are toasted by their parents, their Maid of Honor and/or their Best Man.  These people know the newlyweds so well and they share lovely insights and stories about the couple that, while maybe most of the guests in attendance already have an inkling of, I certainly haven’t heard before.  For me, it’s one of the most revelatory parts of the day, because I get to know more about the bride and groom – as described by those who adore them.  This was certainly the case at Brenna + Patrick’s beautiful reception at Chevy Chase Club.  Brenna’s mom, Maura, told a lovely story from when her daughter was three years old and set a goal and timeline for herself so that she could stop swimming with floaties by her fourth birthday.  And on her fourth birthday, young Brenna was thrilled when she said, “Oh, I’m four!”, and went diving in to the pool sans floaties.  Brenna’s sister, Hayley, described a special moment when Brenna calmed and comforted her younger sister so that she wouldn’t be afraid when the two were in trepidatious waters.  And finally Patrick’s brother, Michael’s, toast was the perfect finale to the three speeches when he aptly compared Patrick to a puppy and and Brenna to a cat.  Patrick is like a puppy in that he is energetic, outgoing, friendly, and remarkably loyal.  Brenna is like a cat in that she is calm, thoughtful, sensible, regal, and of course, beautiful.  Together, Brenna and Patrick are a perfect match.  It was wonderful to be a part of their beautiful (and a wee bit wet :) wedding at Dahlgren Chapel (at Georgetown University, Brenna’s alma mater) and then the raucous celebration at Chevy Chase Club.  Congratulations, Brenna + Patrick, and welcome home from your Australian honeymoon!
