The first notes of Pachelbel's Canon floated into the air and at the same moment heavy raindrops began to fall from the sky, much harder than before. Not a single guest stood up from their seat and without skipping a beat, the bride walked down the aisle with a smile on her face. These two were married under a pink umbrella, and from the look on their faces, they wouldn't have had it any other way.
I guess coming from a planner, the moral of the story would be to be prepared for the unexpected. At this wedding, I wasn't a planner, though. I was a guest and a friend of the couple and even though it rained, I have never seen these two more happy. Weather is a great metaphor for marriage - sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, and there's nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella.
Congratulations Tim & Kacy!
