Blue Moon- July 31, 2015

Tonight, you'll have a chance to witness a rare "Blue Moon" with your very own eyes. But what does that mean, exactly? You've probably heard the term "once in a Blue Moon" used to refer to rare events — but just how rare is a Blue Moon, really? And what's so special about them in the first place?

Our Wedding Day

"Once in a blue moon" is not just a phrase we use for those occasional treats or chores.  It is also a rare statistical quirk which occurs when a full moon occurs twice in a calendar month. And today is the day, when for the first time in almost 3 years we will be treated to our second full moon, thanks to the moon last reaching its peak on July 2. Unfortunately, we cannot expect the moon to take on a different hue. Barring volcanic eruption, it will remain as white as Lauren’s wedding dress. 

The Wedding

From Elvis Presley to Ella Fitzgerald, one of the classic popular songs for love-lorn people is 'Blue Moon'. The 1934 song relates the tale of a man who finally found the love of his life - something that was so unexpected for him that it must have happened under a blue moon.

Although Lauren and Kenneth Kiwicz did not find one another under a blue moon; their meeting in Las Vegas was just as rare and unexpected.

It’s almost as if Joan Gray was talking about our couple when she said: “Once in a while…. once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while, people may even take your breath away”
Blue Moons are rare – but so is the love that Lauren and Kenneth Kiwicz have for each other
