The reason I was in DC this weekend was that I was officiating the wedding of my friends Emily Weise and Michael King (now each taking the name of Weise-King), and I have to say it was a whole lot of fun, from the robot cake toppers to the part where a significant portion of the men dropped their pants, linked arms in a circle and bellowed lustily to the strains of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.” At which point, someone there turned to me and said, “Are you totally blogging this?” Well, yes. I totally am. It was brilliant, frankly.
And I’m delighted to say that the ceremony portion of the wedding went like a dream; it was one of the smoothest-working weddings I’ve been part of, either as officiant or as part of the wedding. I’ll have to remember what I was doing in this one and carry it over to whenever I do this again. A very smart and organized wedding party helped. Of course, I was delighted to play even a small part in this wedding. I love weddings, especially when they involve people I like and hope are happy for the rest of their lives.
And now, to pack, because I have to get up early and drive back to BWI and see how much travel karma is this time around. Think good thoughts for me.
