Larisa and Karl planned to have their small intimate wedding at a special spot on the campus at NCSU where they met but the pouring rain forced us to do their ceremony at their home. Nevertheless the wedding ceremony was no less meaningful and beautiful. Their wedding day, May 11, 2008, was exactly seven years to the day since their relationship began. Karl's mother and Larisa's parents were present as well as their beautiful and brilliant sisters, Casselle and Anna. Karl and Larisa included personal "speeches" to each other in their ceremony that celebrated their 7 years together. Karl smashed a glass in tribute to Larisa's Jewish heritage as we all shouted Mazeltov! Then Karl kissed his bride and I presented the newlywed couple to their families! Larisa and Karl, I wish you many happy multiples of 7 years together!
