      Hey John,

      Congratulations on the engagement. Will be interesting to hear how you
      negotiate the pitfalls of parental and family expectations vis-a-vis the
      church wedding. Our agnostic-Catholic interfaith wedding was tough enough.

      Thanks for sharing your experience.

      Rand, Deb & Benjamin
