As I stepped into the expansive room, I was instantly washed over by the subtle, playful sound of big band music bouncing its way out of a hidden speaker and into my ears. The golden glow of the late afternoon sunlight drifted through the floor-to-ceiling windows and shined unselfishly over more than a dozen colorfully glazed motorcars born in the 1920’s and 30’s. What was once a stunning showroom displaying new, locally designed and manufactured cars, is now a glamorous snapshot of a time period passed.
It was the perfect setting for a new wife and husband to celebrate and share with their loved ones, the cheerful beginning of a new journey. Weddings have the unique ability to reach up towards the sky, and bring us closer to the stars. The buzzing aura of electricity ignites a spark lighting a path to something bigger; Love of every shade and shape, Faith in things we cannot hold in the palms of our hands, and a bright flash of Hope. Dreams don’t seem so far out of reach, the fog doesn’t seem quite so thick, the world doesn’t seem so cruel. It seems, if only for a brief moment, even the most shadowed of minds can find themselves believing. Believing that worthwhile and impossible things are possible.
Real life magic.
I had the honor, privilege and pleasure to be included.
The wedding reception was held at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in Auburn, Indiana. It is a National Historic Landmark.
