The best weddings, to us, are the ones that celebrate family. A brand new family forms the minute a bride and groom say "I do." Two already existing families are joined into one. One family gets a new daughter. The other, a new son. Together, these families spend a whole day rejoicing over love and togetherness. Elizabeth's and Sam's day was all about family.

They were both surrounded by the ones they love the most all day long, and that is what truly made this day so special.

Everyone knew she made the right choice, in the way she glows when she is around him, and in the way that he takes care of and complements her in every way. He was perfect for her, and she was eagerly accepted into his family.

But even if it wasn't such an obvious kind of love, you would still know how much he loves her. You would know, because he moved halfway across the world to be with her.

I'll be honest. I am not a fan of dying eggs. It's messy, it consumes a whole evening, and it's a waste of a dozen eggs. But I'll be doing it anyway. As a parent, it's one of the lesser evils. And besides, Easter is...
