It has been a long time coming but my brother and his fiancée will soon have their special day. They will get married this Sunday.
Like many other weddings that were scheduled in 2020, Glen and Carrie were forced to reschedule theirs because of the pandemic. Originally set to wed on July 4, 2020, they delayed their wedding and set a new date for September 2020, only to have to pull the plug on those plans as well. So, exactly a year from when their original #GlenGotCarriedAway ceremony was supposed to take place, the two will finally be able to tie the knot on Sunday, July 4, 2021.
I think we all share respect and empathy for those couples who had to cancel their special days at the height of COVID-19. For those of us who had the good fortune of actually getting married on the day that we planned, it is tough to imagine having the rug pulled from underneath our feet and scrambling to make alternative plans for that special moment in the sun that we all dream about.
Thankfully for Glen and Carrie, that moment is almost here…complete with extra sun. The heat wave in the Pacific Northwest continues and when my brother and soon-to-be sister-in-law get married on Sunday afternoon it will be 100 degrees. Yes, they are getting married outside. I will have the privilege of sweating it out with them as I am Glen’s best man. Talk about one of the greatest honors of my life!
It will be a spectacular Fourth of July for two families and their friends. Heck, all of us have waited patiently for this day too! But who are we kidding? The two people who deserve this day more than anyone will be exchanging their vows at Trezzi Farm at around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. Good things come to those who wait and I think that despite the delay it will all be worth it. Enjoy your wedding week festivities, Glen and Carrie. Don’t Blink.
