We went to Lyette and Jay's wedding last night on Cape Cod.
The Greek Orthodox ceremony was fascinating (and beautiful). We gave the Freeds a ride to the church, and on the way back the four of us tried to remember when the split between the Catholic and Orthodox churches happened.
The conversation went something like this:
Alisa: "That wasn't all that dissimilar from the Catholic ceremony."
Leigh: "I guess that's not all that surprising, right?"
Jim: "Wait...who was Justinian?"
Dick: "The pope, or the emperor?"
And so on. Yes, we're that geeky.
Anyway, we returned to the lovely Coonamessett Inn, and in true Mercier/Spiros form, we celebrated. (Read: much food, wine, and awesome music. Woo!)
Lyette and Jay just glowed. It was a great way to start a holiday weekend.
Mazel tov, y'all! And happy new year!
