The ceremony is over; the marriage begun. Two architects are now united in the design of the relationship of their lives.

I didn't break until I, having the designation of telling everyone in the wedding party when to enter the church, directed the groomsmen and pastor into the chapel. I closed the door, allowing for a slight pause before my brother entered. I looked at him and saw him not in that moment, but in a continuum of the past 24 years. He smiled at me- that big grin, eyes dancing. I told him I loved him, and he said, "I love you, too, sister." He then stepped into the moment of his life. I quickly blinked and readied myself for ushering in the girls.

I am so happy for N. I have never met him but from what you have said I take he is a great person and friend to you. It is always nice when siblings go beyond just being realated and can be friends. Give him my congrats. I hope they are happy together.
