Was it a Pirate-y wedding, what did you sing at the ceremony, what did you eat? We need details!
It was a very small gathering of mostly family. They actually decided the day before to "go for it" mainly due to my son being tired of the question "when are you going to marry that girl?".
Having virtually no time to plan there was little in pomp due to circumstance. I did a short but serious ceremony about love and commitment and they exchanged rings and we were done. I had talked to them many months ago about the pirate thing and they wanted this to be a bit on the serious side. I actually thought it very cool that they wanted me to do it yet they took doing it very seriously.
I think it may say something for the future that we were the ones that were turned to for serious stuff to avoid all the silliness that exists in religion.
