After having kids of my own, I had an "oh, now I get it moment" when I realized that weddings may just be even more emotional for parents of the couple then for the bride and groom themselves. This thought never crossed my mind when I was a bride. But once I became a mother . . . yep . . . I'm pretty sure it's true. One of the things I admire about Sara and Tyler is that they seemed to know this already. They made sure that their wedding day was a celebration that honored all their loved ones . . . their parents, their grandparents, their friends. Sara and Tyler surprised two sets of grandparents with cakes in celebration of their anniversaries (60th and 64th?!) before cutting the wedding cake. Sara made quilts for each of her bridesmaids and presented these at the rehearsal dinner. And the toasts by family and friends (and Tyler himself) were among the most heartfelt, moving and funny that I've ever heard. Congratulations to Sara and Tyler and their families for a beautiful, fun and joyous start to Sara & Tyler's marriage!
