Kurt and Julie have a way about them. I realized this during many moments throughout their wedding day – in the comfort and ease that came with spending the day with them, or the way they looked at each other with all the adoration – but the realization came to me most clearly toward the end of my time at their reception. I had lost track of time entirely as the night went on, but not because things were too hectic or crazy that I didn’t have a moment to check – I lost track of time simply because I was entirely caught up in the two of them.
In her toast at their wedding reception, Julie’s sister, Lauren, described this way about Kurt and Julie as an aura that surrounds them, and I couldn’t agree more. There’s something magnetic about these two when they’re together – you want to be near them as they exude happiness, as they dance together on the dance floor, as they laugh and smile and look at each other in a way that you just know is saying, ‘I could not possibly be happier in this moment’. You don’t even necessarily want to be in on it, because you know this moment is something reserved particularly for the two of them – but you want to be in its presence, because even a nearness to a love like that feels like more than enough.
