This year's wedding season has concluded for me after conducting 3 ceremonies. Each one is unique and special, of course, with its memoires and highlights. Earlier this summer, and for the first time in 6 years, I married a couple that wasn't living together before their wedding. I'm not passing any moral judgment, I'm just saying is all.
This afternoon's outdoor service was rained out by a freakishly isolated thunderstorm. At first we thought we could attach the sides of the guest tent and put up another gazebo shelter for the wedding party. Then the puddles of water deepened to pools and considering the high heels of the bridesmaids and long dress of the bride, the call was made to move to the reception hall.
After rearranging chairs and tables, setting up sound equipment and some hasty re-choreography, we began things an hour late but the couple was wedded and that is the most important thing, apart from everyone "looking so hot".
