A feeling that is hard to evoke without authenticity.
(Maybe that’s why Jane Austen had to spend so much time developing characters and storylines before she could successfully insert a romantic scene. Pride and Prejudice definitely wouldn’t work without this concept...but, we digress.)
Getting to witness authentic love expressed between a new husband and wife? In a setting they love? With a vibe that is just so them? It makes one really feel the romance.
Such was the case with Emily and Steve’s intimate wedding. It took place at the bride’s childhood family home on Lake Michigan. (Technically, it was a backyard beach barbecue but labeling such a dreamy day thusly makes us feel uncomfortable.)
