At last… two very dear friends of mine have finally put a ring on 34 years of happiness. Dexter and Daryl have been married in every other sense of the word since 1981 and I have had the pleasure of watching them mellow together like a very fine wine.
Officiated by a friend, the ceremony was tiny and set in a lovely condo at the Gregory… a little champagne, a little salmon mousse and a license to sign. Then we headed into rush hour traffic and landed at the Hotel Eastlund for a fine meal and the company of 18 old friends… many people I haven’t seen in a long while. In all of it, the evening seemed to buzz with a quiet satisfaction… glances across the table and all of the conversations and laughter.
All of us have waited a long time for this wedding… at last, we got to raise a cheerful glass to the two married guys at the center of this little crowd!
I wouldn’t have missed this one for the world!
