June 20, 2011 - Love Is In The Air During June!
Historically, some married in the month of June to honor Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage. Others did it to time conception so births wouldn’t interfere with harvest work. Brides in the 15th century chose to marry in June because it coincided with their “annual bath” yes, really-ensuring a relatively sweet smelling honeymoon. Centuries later, June has remained the most popular month to wed. In MGM’s 1954 Academy Award winning musical, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers the song “June Bride” touts; “Oh, they say when you marry in June, you’re a bride all your life, and the bridegroom who marries in June gets a sweetheart for a wife”.
Well what ever the reason there is definitely love in the air. Two of our homeowners will now be sharing the same wedding anniversary June 18, 2011. Help me in congratulating Fritz and Ashley and Preston and Jennifer who will both be wed this Saturday. I definitely agree with the June wedding date, I just celebrated my 27th wedding anniversary this month as well. Congratulations and here’s to a perfect life together at Lexington Square!!!!
