Charles & Clare | Wed Amongst A Garrison Of Goldenrod

Amongst a garrison of goldenrod in peak bloom, flanked by the oldest of oaks and ancient stonewalls, sits Charles’ childhood home and the setting of his elysian September wedding day where he exchanged forevers with his bride, Clare, in front of their siblings and parents.

Clare is a cardiac nurse working in open heart surgery and strikes me as the kind of person who is so even-keeled and not easily ruffled. But she described the fireworks, not in the night sky, but exploding and igniting her soul on a fateful New Years eve when she first met Charles. After meeting them, I actually can’t picture Clare in any other profession than that in charged with keeping our bleeding hearts thumping so that we might go on loving the people in our world. It’s no surprise Charles never takes his eyes off her.

Every toast, and speech, and small talk echoed the serendipity of their meeting and perfection in union.

Charles and Clare, may your hearts beat in unison until the end.
