Aileen walked down the aisle to The Luckiest by Ben Folds.
I’ve always loved the words to this song. It’s odd but familiar, and nothing short of perfect.
♬ Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties, and one day, passed away in his sleep. And his wife, she stayed for a couple of days, and passed away. I’m sorry, I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong, that I know, that I am, I am the luckiest. ♬
Gabriel didn’t cry. He wept.
It was sweet and funny and endearing because he doesn’t really strike you as the crying type, and my heart was bursting with happiness for Aileen, because goodness, to be loved that much is the best thing. And how lucky are they both to have found each other in this lifetime.
Gab and Aileen, Jeff and I had a wonderful time with you! The day was incredibly happy and so much feel-good, it lingered for days. I’m completely in love with how in love you two are with each other, and we hope you always love like this. Wishing you both all the best, always.
