Congratulations Mr and Mrs Chad Doty

He and I attended the wedding of the son of one of my BFFs tonight.  (I have 2 by the way) (I’m very lucky)  It was the most enjoyable, romantic ceremony I have ever attended.  If I describe it as quiet – you probably won’t understand.  It was quiet and it was calm and it was genuine and it was love.  The ceremony was held at the country home of the brides parents.  Outside in a beautiful setting of chairs, tent and nature. The officiate was a long time friend of the groom  who spoke softly and with loving emotion.  There was a vocalist with her guitar and her microphone and her amazing voice to set the mood.  There was no rocking your senses with loud organ music, overplayed wedding songs and noise.  It was quiet.  Somewhere over the Rainbow sung by the previously mentioned melodic singer was the music behind the attendants walk to the front…a pause… the bride made her way to the front.  There was no church service…no raised voices…no preaching..there was only the officiates introduction to the love he has witnessed between the bride and groom, the exchange of vows, a poem read by an emotional friend of the couple, the kiss and the presentation of the couple.  Not one time was I uncomfortable because I was feeling bad for the vocalist hitting a wrong note…there was not one time that I wanted to scream stop talking,…there was not one time I wished I were somewhere else.  It was beautiful, it was calm, it was quiet, it was genuine and it was love!
