It's hard to describe how it felt seeing Hannah and Alex, two old Oak Hills kids, reunite under the familiar old oak tree at the heart of our neighborhood. What I loved most about the ceremony was how natural the entire thing felt. They were both there under the tree to greet guests as they arrived, bikers went past, kids' soccer games played on, and as the time drew near for the ceremony to begin, the bride shouted at the crowd, "Are we missing anybody?!" The vows that Hannah and Alex wrote were spoken by a dear friend John, and told as though reading an old storybook tale... of two neighborhood kids brought together by the stars and the trees and the friends and family who love them most.
