Just a few days shy of Christmas, Andy and Allissa married on a chilly December day. In a culture with so many details that can make a wedding feel a little over-the-top, this simple wedding was one of great elegance, class, and tenderness. I told them as I arrived that I shed a tear on the way as I realized how similar their wedding day would be to my own parents and how thankful I am that I had just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary that very week.
This expression on Andy's face is when I asked him if he was excited to be marrying Allissa. He unabashedly grinned and simply said, "Yes!"
