Every time I think I’ve seen it all….I see something else! That happened last weekend at a wedding we photographed.
The wedding was in the International Center and was supposed to start at 6 pm. All the guests were there and seated. The person who was supposed to officiate was not there. There was no contact information with a phone number to call this person.
I told the mother of the bride that I could do the ceremony but that I had not brought the book with the information. Jenna-Beth said that she could find a ceremony on her iPhone. I said that would be great except the print was so small that I could not read it. Jenna-Beth said that she would read it and I could sign the paper work. The bride’s parents thought that was a great idea. The bride and her father were walking down the aisle while Jenna-Beth was still searching on her iPhone!
The ceremony began only a few minutes late and everything turned out fine. I signed the marriage license and had the two witnesses sign it, too. The guests thought it was a beautiful ceremony and asked Jenna-Beth where her church was located!
