I went to a wedding last night. I love weddings. I cried at the first peek at the bride and that proud look glowing on the groom's face. We clapped, danced and sang out our "Amens" with the slammin' gospel choir. The bride and groom floated during their charming first dance.
I was in cohoots with the people at the "party table," who pretended that Barbara (whose seat was empty) had actually showed up and ordered tons of food and cocktails for her. Then we collectvely consumed all of it. All the while asking the empty chair if it would like some more champagne.
Every wedding has its moments. Like when after recently breaking his foot, my brother began the first dance with his wife clutching a cane. Then after the first few frustrated measures, he tossed it across the dance floor and grabbed his bride. The crowd roared.
At my friend Krista's wedding this summer, she brought in a photo booth. The pictures are hilarious. People packed in there in crazy poses. And the favorite question of the night was, "Did you get in the photo booth yet?"
And at a lot of weddings I've attended, I've crashed the band and sang. The guests go crazy cheering for one of their own.
What are some of your favorite wedding moments?
