So this week I am officiating my first wedding. I am really looking forward to this but I’m also very nervous. I really want the couple to work out but there isn’t any way for me to ensure that beyond counseling and Godly encouragement and prayer. Having done all of that I think the most important thing is to geek out the rehearsal and revel in the geek wedding that could have been.
First and foremost you must know that I was asked because of who I am and not the title I hold. Any happenings that happen will be done with utmost respect to the sanctity of the union and the couple who will be joined in marriage.
That said, I will be reenacting the wedding scene from the Princess Bride during the rehearsal. This is a must. If you are not familiar with the scene please watch the clip. If you are familiar with it you will want to watch anyways because it is amazing.
Now that is about geek level one. It isn’t enough. I’ll be meeting with the bride today to discuss the vows and order of service. I’m hoping she’ll go with some of my suggestions. Let me know what you think?
