They got married!

Sarie and Alberto met four-and-a-half years ago, at the conservatory. There’s been a whole lot of water under the bridge since then, but on Saturday they were married. Now they live in a nice house in a small town outside of Torino, with an apartment upstairs and their new English school downstairs, and family close by.

We had six relatives and a friend attend the wedding, which gave the whole experience an extra dimension in which people who really didn’t speak the other’s language well (if at all) somehow managed to communicate their happiness about the occasion. There was a cappella singing, trading of tongue twisters in the other language, a polaroid photo contest, and a silly dance. And then some of the Italians and Americans travelled around together for three days.

The honeymoon proper begins next week, and there will be a party for the newlyweds in Atlanta next weekend. I wish them many, many happy years together.

  1. Best wishes to the newlyweds, and to you as you add the new hat of in-law to your wardrobe. I’ve missed blog posts from you!

  2. They look so happy and Sarie is so beautiful. I remember pics of her as just a little girl. God bless their marriage. Congratulations to you and all.

  3. I’m so happy to see this photo, Laura! (again, I think–haha). They look happy, and I wish them great joy together. Congratulations and love to Sarie and Alberto from me. ❤
