I faintly remember that our ceremony was lovely, though I can't be certain, because as soon as I heard the first notes of Mr. HC's stirring processional music, I had an out-of-body, giddy-like-a-schoolgirl experience.
So there were seven circles. Seven circles only the two of you could make seven circles. Because there are seven layers to a person's soul, and the dimensions of each other's soul are revealed to each of you through the love that has deepened during the years that you have been walking toward this chuppah. Dimensions of the soul revealed in the music that Miss HC encouraged Mr. HC to write for this processional -- beautiful music that reflects longing, love, and gratitude for arriving at this moment in your journey. And I know that I speak for everyone when i say that this journey has taken a really long time. Sixteen years? Fifteen years? Who's counting?
