Casey and Emily

Last night, Beck and I attended Casey and Emily’s wedding. What a beautiful affair! The ceremony was at MoBoT in the Japanese Garden. Emily’s grandfather officiated — I know how meaningful it is to have a family member perform the ceremony, and I’m sure this was a blessing for them.

After escaping the heat of the outdoor ceremony, we moved indoors to the James S. McDonnell Planetarium at the St. Louis Science Center for the reception. Now that was cool! As we learned later in the evening, the dusk-like sky portrayed on the ceiling above us was the sky of the night of August 12th last year, when they were engaged. After dinner, the planetarium did a sky-show, pointing out all the interesting things in the sky the night of their engagement, right down to the Perseid meteor shower.

That was one whale of a neat ceremony, and I’m honored to have been invited!
