The moment everyone was waiting for… twice!


I didn’t exactly stay up for the entire wedding… The alarm was originally set for 12:50 am so I can stay up and watch the wedding festivities; however, I opted for my sleep and sanity. I eventually woke up around 4 am to a fussing baby Sofia and turned on the TV to (groggily) catch the final moments of the new bride and groom walking back down the aisle, and of course witnessed that now historic double kiss. Sofia could be less aware of what was going on, but definitely helped to make the wedding memorable. Soon after the royal kiss, Sofia proceeded to barf all over me. Classic.

At least I can tell her that funny “royal” anecdote when she’s older.

Kate certainly looked picture perfect. The Alexander McQueen wedding dress was stunning on her, equally elegant as it was modest. It’s sad that McQueen was not alive to see what would surely have been a proud moment for him. No doubt that design will be a popular request of brides in the coming year.

I remember wondering earlier why everybody was making such a big fuss about the wedding, but I realize now how special it really was. I wasn’t alive to see the wedding of Diana and Charles in 1981, but I imagine that the mood was quite similar. This was something that the world needed. It’s literally the “Superbowl” for women. It’s what nearly every young girl wishes and imagines for herself: to be a Princess swept off her feet by a charming Prince. We all wish for that moment of walking down the aisle, the center of attention, feeling like the most beautiful girl in the world. This was the moment everybody wanted to see. That fairytale of the ordinary girl becoming a Princess… It was the glimmer of good news that people could focus on in a world full of trouble and conflict.

Best wishes to the new bride and groom.
