The Browns - Est. June 26th, 2010


Jon + Mimi’s Wedding

This wedding has probably been the most important wedding I have done to date. Mimi has been one my closest friends for many years and I can’t believe I had the privilege to be a part of her special day.
 I remember talking about her wedding years ago—well before she met her groom Jon—and conspiring and scheming up ideas for her flowers and d├ęcor. It was with awe that I got to witness her relationship blossom with Jon, and I knew in my heart from the moment she mentioned his name that this was the guy for her. I knew that we had already pretty much planned her wedding, but I take little credit for the amazing event it turned out to be. Mimi has always been so talented with color and design and she was the orchestrator behind all the details. In addition, this wedding would not have been possible without my elves, Ruthie, Liannimal and Katsie…without you three I would have been sunk!

Mimi, I miss you my dear friend but am so proud and happy that you have found love!
Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out
Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.
And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your root was so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.

Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.
