We were married on June the Fifth, amidst chirping birds, literary centerpieces and felt flowers.
It was a beautiful event that went smoothly from beginning to end. This, I must say, is in large part due to Dad Dobson’s tireless organization and detail-relishing presence. He was our unofficial (unofficial in that he wasn’t contracted, and that we ate his food during our many meetings) wedding planner. Think J Lo without rhythm, but with a superior attachment to everyday reasons to laugh. Thank you sir.
I also cannot continue without thanking Mom Dobson, whose many meals kept us nourished, whose last-minute touches to, frankly, “screw the budget” were refreshing, and whose patience often helped to diminish the delirium in the end. Additionally, I want to thank my parents (and Claire Bear) who were the masterminds behind the wedding shower and the gorgeous wedding rehearsal dinner. They were both successful events with tasty bites and genuinely wonderful company.
Lastly, but certainly not to be considered least, I want to thank my lovely critter bug. You are the embodiment for all of this joy, all of these smiles, all of these reasons to love you. Thank you.
Jessica and I, we wanted a wedding that had the feel of a fun, casual summer’s day in the park.
We wanted a wedding that was a visual and emotional encapsulation of our passion for the literary and the natural world, and was representative of our own unique whimsy and merriment.
We wanted a wedding that we could share with our loving family and friends.
And it was all of these things, and so much more.
Thanks again to Thomas Morgan for the tunes, Raymond Obstfeld for the officiating, Leisa Rich for the flowers, Jenny Karp for the cupcakes, Kathryn Rooklidge for the centerpieces, Lesley Sopp-Lukens for the photos, Jacques Funke for the photos and our beautiful groomsfolk and bridesmaids for the support.
