The day was actually nice. Even warm.
It was high time.
And it's a good thing, because the bride and bridesmaids (optimistic souls) wore strapless gowns. I ventured outside the house without my customary layers of tights and boots and scarf and sweater. The breeze in the gazebo was refreshing. My fingers didn't freeze when I played.
I loved the little touches of "bling" floating in the warm air.
Sibley Park has added some lovely accents to the gazebo area. The curving brick path leading up to it begins with a new iron archway. It was so touching to see each couple pause under the arch before processing up the aisle (to - what else? - Canon in D). The bride was radiant and the atmosphere was joyful.
There was even enough daylight and warmth left when the wedding was over to go for a long run. Let summer begin.
