When 2 people decide to come together as one, all things are set aside. Roy, a very good friend from my childhood, from Caracas, Venezuela, Jewish, with Israeli background, and Mae, a gorgeous Colombian from Bogota raised Catholic, met a few years back in Miami. Over the years they have grown together in the most fluid way. While distant, Mae fell in love with Roy and Judaism, as Roy fell in love with Mae. And no states in between would keep them apart. Both involved in the numbers world, realized no crazy math was necessary for the 2 of them to be together for ever. A simple sum of 1 plus 1.
Although I have lost 2 on my team, and who’s talking about me, I could not be happier that the 2 of them have truly found their soul mate!!! Mae and Roy tied the knot on March 30th under Jewish law. The ceremony was spectacular. The bride glowed amongst the wedding party of all men, and the groom shined as he saw his wife walking down the aisle.
Many people flew in from Colombia, Venezuela, NY, Boston, even Israel, to share this special day with 2 people that truly have always been there for their friends, let alone one another. No need to say that it was one of the best parties I’ve been to, most of the people there would agree I had a blast. But so did everyone else. People met knew people, danced together through the night, definitely exchanged kisses, and possibly even numbers. One could say that the energy from Roy and Mae was so strong that people themselves couldn’t retain the love. Although much gossip came about all this, it really is amazing what the love that 2 people have for one another can do to you. We all seem to be looking for that one to share the rest of our lives with, but maybe even more when you are partaking in an others’ wedding day.
It’s amazing, at least in my case, how we come to a point where we know to a certain extent exactly what we want. These days on the dating scene, I’m no longer prolonging a relationship just to be in one. On that note, I’ve noticed, the guys I actually decide on are either unavailable or are just good for the time I need them, no hurt feelings of course. And the ones that happen to be interested and some what interesting, I kick to the curb. Selfish, stupid, I know, but at the same time, one could say that I might be having too much fun being single, and not ready to actually cross the fence myself. It seems easy to find a guy to kiss the night your best friends are getting married. Why not just do that then? Do we have something to lose?
Alcohol present, we grasp on to the idea of happiness for that one moment. It becomes easy to lose touch of what we really want when there is someone of the opposite sex willing to play with you. And unfortunately for some, the ones that actually have feelings involved, we do the unimaginable, or act on what we promised we wouldn’t act on. We give in. Why? For who? If what we want is soooo clear, why do we put it last? Is the game, really worth the medal? That being if you win?
Love really was in the air at Roy and Mae’s wedding!!! And no matter how the night went for you, in the end, in the real end, it will only smooth sail. Mazal Tov to Mae and Roy for tying the knot, and may all the ones on this side of the fence be as happy as the the bride and groom were on their night and will always be!
