we were gathered saturday to witness this union of this man and this woman in matrimony. that’s right, the wedding of greg and cheryl was this weekend. they had a wonderful wedding. i was the officiant for their wedding.
people ask me how it is that i came about becoming the officiant for them. one day greg was talking to someone and he was asked who was going to marry him and cheryl. neither of them are religious and they didn’t want to have a religious ceremony. he said that he hadn’t thought much about it and didn’t know. i had made an offhand comment that i would totally marry them. greg said he’d ask cheryl about it and the next day he IMs me and says, “so…were you serious about marrying us?” and that’s how it all started.
the ceremony itself was great. it fit greg and cheryl quite well, humorous at times, heartfelt at others. the letters to their parents got me teary-eyed. both of them.
i was pretty nervous officiating the wedding. i didn’t want to mess up their wedding, and i was a little unsure about whether or not some of the humorous parts of the ceremony would go over well. but in the end, i think it came out well.
that’s three weddings this year: geoff and pak, paul and leeya, and now greg and cheryl. i think our wedding will be the last of the year.
