Mimi, thank you..The wedding was exactly as we both had hoped, incredible. The day, details, etc. worked out as good as we could have imagined.

Michelle Obama says, "This was an eye-opener for me, that marriage is hard. But going into it, no one tells you that. They just tell you, 'Do you love him? What's the dress look like?' If our ups and downs in our marriage can help young couples realize that good marriages take work…The image of a flawless relationship is the last thing that we want to project. It's unfair to the institution of marriage and it's unfair for young people who are trying to build something, to project this perfection that doesn't exist."
