Part of me can’t help but wonder what President Calvin Coolidge, a conservative Republican from Vermont, would make of two women from Colorado getting married at the site of his former home. Â I’d like to believe old Cal was a reasonable man who could have kept up with the times. Â I also think he would have loved Rebecca and Emily and their amazing group of family and friends who traveled to Ruralest Vermont for the wedding.
No doubt, as a small government kind of President, he would have appreciated the handy, do-it-yourself nature of their wedding decorations. Â Becky is a weaver, and created the fabric they used for their hand-fasting. Â Not to mention they wrote their own vows, and I got all crafty and glued them to pretty pieces of paper!
We’re all practically homesteaders!
