see the rest of this crazy lovely wedding at Design*Sponge
I was recently blessed to be in the same area code as our dear friend/wedding officiant a couple weeks ago. The two of us sat down to discuss some wedding "stuff." I had my notebook in hand, as well as a list of all those helpful bridal blog suggestions I've gathered about composing the ceremony. Most of the "stuff" My Guy and I will actually have to compose - to find which readings we like the MOST. Remember, my future hubby is an English teacher, and I have a love for the written word as well. We have a list of suggested readings that is a tad-freaking-over-whelming.
For example: Shakespeare. I love him. I loved my summer at Shakespeare camp...so much so that when I returned home I no longer wanted to be pre-med in college. I wanted to be a Shakespearean actress! I kid you not. The fantasy lasted a couple weeks...but it was there. (and yes, I totally rocked out at Shakespeare camp...it was rad!)
So then, Meg asked which play/passage/scene did we want to include from Shakespeare. I looked at her blankly. I had no idea. Romeo & Juliet? How do you pick? How do you scrounge for those passages that melt your heart? I only recently began dog-earring the bottom pages of books I never want to forget. How do we sift through freaking Shakespeare!?
Meg is an English teacher too. She knew exactly where to look. Now you do too.
