Jon + Olivia

Ah love. How many wedding posts does this make? No idea, but this one was an amazing one. One of the best weddings I've ever been to. The couple got married at 632 on Hudson, which was an incredible venue.  There was a huge square staircase leading up three floors, with an atrium in the middle. The couple got married at the bottom, whilst we all looked down on them from the staircase. It was absolutely beautiful. Jon is a part-time party thrower/promoter and Olivia is very arty and talented, so the wedding was phenomenal. Little Bermudian (him) and English (her) h'ors doeuvres were served before dinner, which gave it a very lovely touch. Dinner was downstairs, then partying continued upstairs, and onto a club for the after party, which the bride appeared in in full Vera Wang regalia.

So today is obviously September 11th. Now, of course it would be hard to find anything to celebrate on this day, considering the tragedy. But I would like to take a moment to celebrate the spirit of the survivors and those lost. The memorials and the rebuilding of the Trade Centers are a true testament to the resiliency of the human spirit. If we continue in this direction, terrorism will not win.
