My daughter Jessica married her High School sweetheart Matthew yesterday at Mount Madonna Park near Gilroy. The bride was lovely, the groom was handsome, and the 125 gusts had a delightful time. Jessica wore my first wedding dress (ivory raw silk) with a river pearl necklace from her Grandmother and me. Matt wore a tuxedo with white vest and tie. The mothers read two poems:
- I read “Wedding Poem for Schele and Phil” by Bill Holm
- Matt’s Mom Karen read “A Marriage” by Michael Blumenthal
Before, during, and after the ceremony, there were hundreds of formal photos. Then, everyone ate food and cake and was happy and silly… The couple will live for their first year in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania while where Jessica will be a 5th Year Scholar at CMU. Jessica was graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with honors in Ethics, History & Public policy (that’s one major). She will finish her minor in Music and focus on her Arabic during the coming year. Matt just was graduated from William & Mary with honors in Computer Science and Public Policy.
