It started off for me like any other crazy Friday, but For ten minutes in the late afternoon, it was as if Time stood Still.
Chris and Genevra were married at Burlington City Hall and aside from a few modern details (like a computer on the desk of the clerk’s window), it could have been 1960, 1970 or any other year in the last 5 decades.
The groom wore his Vt. Air Guard dress uniform. The bride wore a white A-line dress, a (fake) fur collared shawl and her mothers wedding gloves from 30+ years ago. She carried a bouquet of flowers from their garden, ones that magically still bloomed, in spite of a recent frost. (The whole look was very Jacquie Kennedy!)
It is just what the couple wanted- a short-maybe 3 minute-ceremony, consisting of a couple of “I DO‘s… and then sealed with a kiss.
Then they waited for the marriage license..
Did a little celebratory dance…
And they were on their way!
Congratulations, Chris and Genevra! May you live happily ever after!
