Sat. 2/6/11: Right now preparing ceremony for a wedding this evening
at Kennedy School; Warm Springs couple being married; minister
couldn't make it. So groom came an hour ago and we decided on
ceremony. Full procession, flower girls, ringbearer - the works -
tuxes, et al. Oh my! Hopefully this will go well. More later.
Th, 2/24/11: Preparing for Mexican/American wedding next weekend;
Grandfather wrote a Spanish poem to commemorate his grandson's
marriage - pretty awesome!
And a couple from Warms Springs, getting married at Kennedy School
this weekend called yesterday to say that their officiant, a friend,
couldn't make it, so they were looking for an officiant. In case of
heavy snow, we can walk to Kennedy School, so we couldn't turn them
down. Up to Breitenbush for SSHR and hopefully lots of cross-country
skiable snow!
*Tues, 2/22/11: Great quote we received from couple we recently interviewed:
"Since you guys were the only ones we've met with so far that were able to
help us feel comfortable and "heard", it ended up being an easy decision.
We'd love to hire you guys to officiate at our wedding." *
