I promised that I'd post the story. Here it is.

    Where should I begin? So much happened. Let's begin with almost being left at the altar – by the minister! The wedding was scheduled for 1:00pm. The minister had it written in his date book as being at 4:00 . Ingrid's brother managed to scare up the minister's cell phone number and called him. He finally showed up at five minutes to one.
    Okay, we got through that little crisis. The preacher was ready, the music was ready, and we were at the back of the church ready to enter.
Me (to Ingrid): Have you got our little cheat sheets with the vows?
Ingrid (surprised): I thought YOU had them.
It turns out that we had forgotten the vows, our readings for the service, and the marriage license. I ran home to get those.
    Okay, we managed to get throught the processional, the blessings, and the readings. We were up to the vows. Ingrid and I have each been wearing silver promisory rings since last spring. The procedure, which we had imagined for the vows, was for each of us in turn to remove the other's promisory ring from the left-hand ring finger (with a comment about what it represents) and place it on the right hand ring finger. Then the same person would take the wedding ring and place it where the promisory ring had been (again with comments about what it represents). The other would then repeat the prcedure for the first. After that we were to speak our actual vows.
WEEELLLLL…..
Ingrid grabbed her own wedding ring instead of mine, I dropped her wedding ring and the minister had to go chasing it, and my promisory ring couldn't get past the last knuckle of my right hand ring finger. After a few one liners about creating a juggling act during the wedding and how all of this had worked in rehearsal we got through it. We are married, but not without having turned the church into a vaudeville theater (or do you say "music hall"?).
    If these things ever went smoothly life wouldn't be any fun at all.

Be well.

Stephen Lee

A wedding should have a few good laughs in it!! Mine had me in near hysterics about a prayer that mentioned 'Godly and sober matrons', directed at the bride.....

Congratulations and hope the fun continues.

"Godly and sober matrons"!?!?! Heaven forfend!!! Well...I guess I do have to admit to the sober part. But only as it relates to drink.

Actually, I thought the minister had the vows, and when I scurried to the front to ask him, his eyebrows nearly met his receding hairline. Fortunately, my nephew the pizza driver got Steve home and back in record time.

We walked in singing, first me and then Steve. We alternated verses from "Hymn Song" by Utah Phillips, with everyone joining in on the choruses. I think we both managed to sing clearly enough that shaking knees were not too obvious.

Somehow, I managed not to trip on my train during the ceremony, and the dress didn't shed too many beads. My friend, Lilith, made the dress for me, and beaded the edges of the sleeves and all the way around the veil. I guess beads and insanity just go together.

So far, we've seen one dvd of the ceremony and reception. We haven't seen any photos yet, but then, WE know we made it. Its been almost 2 weeks and we haven't killed each other yet. I think we'll do okay.

Oh, I missed all the lead-up to this! Happiest happies, Stephen and Ingrid. Can you feel the hearts merging when it happens? Is it like elastic with heat-activated sparkles, getting snugger and snugger till a little POP when they ovelap and melt into one? Can you write about that?
