It’s so crazy that in just under 2 weeks I’ll be getting married! Our to-do list is long. Last week, after a busy day at work and separate work events, we needed a dinner out to get away from inside our own heads and everything we have left to do. Embrace the blur. A good friend said to us early on in our engagement, “You’re only engaged once. Enjoy every moment.” You really have to remember sentiments like that when the wedding planning (or wedding buying as my friend Kellee calls it).
So we met up for dinner at Odeon. A great little spot in TriBeCa that has been in the neighborhood for over 20 years.
We sit down and there was a really sweet looking couple next to us. They had a glow to them. He was wearing a bow tie and a suit, she was wearing a beautiful dress with a shawl. They were staring lovingly at each other and talking in a low tone and loving exchange that couples can do when they are really comfortable with each other.
Suddenly, their dessert came to the table, with candles and the whole waitstaff bringing it over and clapping for them.
They look at us and ask if we can take their photo (they asked the perfect couple, right?!). They met there on a blind date and are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary. They come back every year to celebrate.
