the luly yang store was giving a nod to the SCOTUS decision on federal marriage equality which had happened just the day before (amazing timing!)  this was also the beginning of our summer “heat wave” – we were only outside for a short time but it was a hot one for sure…

the dance troupe, rainbow fletcher, did a silent and almost slow motion dance that carried out through the pre-ceremony cocktail hour – very cool to see this movement throughout the room while people were laughing and chatting around them…
