Jaime and Joyce

It was sensory overload. Everywhere I looked I saw someone that I knew, and many of them were the most important people in my life. Virtually my entire family was there, from my father’s side and my mother’s side. The minute I said hello to someone, there was someone else grabbing my shoulder and saying, “Brett!”


I guess this is what happens when your only brother is getting married. He had met Joyce in North Carolina, where they both attended Duke University and shared a similar passion for music and life. Coincidentally, however, they grew up just 40 minutes apart in Connecticut. So this was where the wedding took place. Many of their family and friends live in the New York area. I would say it was convenient except that some of Joyce’s immediate family lives around Seattle, not to mention my aunts and uncles who arrived from North Carolina and Texas. They were among the 200 people at yesterday’s hot and humid outdoor wedding. I can’t really complain though. Friday’s golf tournament organized by my father had to be one of the hottest days of the year, or at least it felt that way because I didn’t play very well. I didn’t do much better when we went bowling that evening. Though, I did have a blast. The next day started out calm, like most weddings do. Then things got just a little out of control on the dance floor when Donna (Jaime’s godmother) pretended to be a bull, using her index fingers as horns as she charged toward Buzz (Jaime’s godfather). By that point most of the men on the dance floor had their ties wrapped around their foreheads, Rambo style. That was probably the pinnacle of the evening. Then people began to leave when I started singing karaoke to the Old School version of “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”


I want to thank my brother and Joyce for being awesome, and dealing with my shenanigans throughout the years. The large crowd at the wedding was a testament to them both. I just wish I had more time to chat with everyone.
