Scenes From A Wedding

I had the great privilege of attending the lovely wedding of Robert and Karen Avrech's "Offspring Number 3". More about the wedding here.

An outsider might have considered this weird in a way because my relationship with the Avrech's came about solely because of our mutual blogging. It's true that I have also had the opportunity to meet them in person in Los Angeles and have developed a bit of a mentoring relationship with their first son-in-law. Nevertheless, through the relationship of blogging, commenting and many, many emails over the years, I think we have come to consider ourselves yedidai nefesh who relate at a deep level. The sad part for me last night was that MHW, who had been looking forward to meeting the Avrechs, had to bug out because The Vance got pretty sick on Sunday afternoon and we couldn't leave her with a babysitter.

It also happens that I know the Groom's side as well. My brother and sister-in-law are very good friends of the groom's parents and the father is a shtikel bike rider, having done last year's Alyn Ride (albeit not at my sicko madraiga :-))

The wedding was very spiritual (the Chupah was absolutely beautiful, led by nigunim from my chaver, Eitan Katz) while at the same time very wild (what else would you expect when the mesader keddushin is the Holy Levite Shlepper from Jawbone Valley

All in all, a wonderful evening.

May the young couple have endless years of happiness and go on to build a bayis ne'eman b'Yisrael.

    Thanks so much for attending and the lovely post. We too missed Mrs. Mo, but hope that we can all get together sooner than later.
