West Point Wedding

Saturday evening my friend Zach pronounced that we have watched some of the finest people get married this summer, and he is right—first Derik and Ingrid, second Hediyeh and Pete. I feel fortunate to have such fine friends, and fortunate to share them with Zach. I cannot express how happy I felt when, at 1:20 am the day before the wedding, after watching CocoRosie play and laying on a futon in Manhattan, I learned that he would be making his own journey to New York.

The wedding itself was beautiful, which is not surprising: Persian weddings are beautiful. And, as already alluded to, Hediyeh and Pete are beautiful, kind individuals. Followed by the dancing, my favorite part of the night's festivities was hearing them read the vows they wrote to one another. They were simple, and sweet, and sincere. I am grateful for the love they make.
