Love can be sophisticated, intimate and fancy.  It can also be insane, hilarious and on display for the whole world.  Weddings like Derek and Brooke's are my favorite -- they're all about two people who are so over-the-moon for each other that no one could mistake that these two are made for one another.  And yet the day is full of small glances and gestures shared between just the two of them, that you know what they have is so unique and special.

Congrats Derek and Brooke!  Your day, at the foot of Mt. Adams, was magical from start-to-finish.  Enjoy your new lives together and I look forward to our paths crossing again one day.


So what's if it's over 100 degrees on your wedding day?  As far as I'm concerned that's good luck.

Zack and Kendall tied the knot last week at the beautiful Sunshine Mill Winery in the The Dalles.  It's a tremendous venue -- and like the couple -- full of character.  Surrounded by their friends and families, they showed just how perfect they are for each other.  Whether they're dining on beer and gourmet pizza or honeymooning at Fenway Park, the smiles aren't coming off these faces.  Their relaxed demeanor and willing to roll with whatever the days bring will, no doubt, provide great foundation for the roads ahead.  I even convinced Kendall to trek up several stories to the top of the that that heat!

Thanks you two!  May you always have happiness and love ahead of you, and may the Sox always win the AL East!
