From the bride… Woody and I first met about 10 years ago. I had been visiting friends in Chicago and met Woody in person for the first time during that trip. (We had known each for few years beforehand through mutual friends.) While in college, I was heading to England for my study abroad year, and then 9/11 happened. Everything in the US (and in the world) came to a halt, including my trip to England. My flight was delayed for about a week. During that week, Woody asked me out, and what ensued was a 10-year long-distance relationship.
Woody flew up to San Francisco from Los Angeles on a rainy Friday December evening to surprise me with the help of my sister and good friend. I was running late for my sister’s birthday dinner (as usual), and Woody called a couple of times, insisting to remain on the line with me while I was getting ready. He asked me to go outside to the mail room to pick up a birthday package for my sister and on my way there, I saw someone standing outside in the rain with their back towards me. Confused as to why a person would be standing in this type of downpour, I walked over to them and to my surprise, it was Woody, soaking wet after standing in the rain for about 30 minutes. From there, he walked me up and then down the steps, both of us stumbling because of our nerves, and asked me to marry him.
During the few moments before our grand entrance, we had the chance to look down at the reception from above while the guests cheered on the wedding party’s entrance. We were on the opposite side and hidden from our guests’ view and stood on a balcony one floor up. This moment was the one time we had during the night to take everything in in a very touching and quiet setting. We will never forget the feeling it gave us.
