“Ithaca is gorges” was printed on many of the tidbits for the wedding that were strewn around the hotel room. Ana and Beth love Ithaca and planned their wedding in the stalls of the very active farmers market by the water. That morning was slow, like getting up and ready for a Sunday brunch. Because they got ready together, everything was together which = much less stress. Ana zipped up Beth’s sequined gown and clapped her hands when Beth turned around. Ana jumped up and Beth couldn’t help but break into a giant grin.
Ceremonies are the official act you need to get married. It’s about these two loving people. But Ana and Beth looked out to their family and friends almost as much as they looked at each other. Their community was all there. And even as they looked out, they almost never stopped holding hands. Beth and Ana were used to being “in it” together. They looked around easily to help the other, make things fun and easier for both.
One of my favorite photos of them is during the ceremony when Beth brushed Ana’s hair back from her face while she was giving her vows. It’s something as a couple I’m sure Beth does all the time and that’s why I love it. Small gestures of love. Of wanting to hold and touch the other. Not the big grand gesture but the small, almost automatic things we do for a lifetime of love.
