Just a quick note to wish everyone a very merry Christmas (or holiday of your choice).
For a slightly more cynical: May your days be filled with a complete lack of family drama and your feelings of obligation be few.
Of course, when all is said and done, I just wish everyone happiness, success, and the opportunity to make a better life for those we care about.
Photo notes: During the reception we snuck away to the lobby of the banquet hall where a nice little living room area had been set up with a tree, couch, and end table. It was great getting away from the crowd and noise for a while. I asked the happy couple to simply spend a few minutes together and ignore me completely. These are some of my favorite kind of wedding moments; quiet with no pressure.
