Wedding Tales: Something New

I wish I had a grand total count of how many brides have walked down an aisle with my accompaniment.  I smugly say that I’ve seen it all – from the dog wheeled down the aisle in a wagon – to the bride who wouldn’t kiss the groom at the end of the ceremony.

But today, I was surprised with something new.  End of the ceremony.  Glowing bride kisses the beaming groom. Bride takes her flowers and the couple are announced as the new Mr & Mrs.  Happiness and clapping ensue.  Cue recessional: Handel’s Queen of Sheba.  Then, as the newlyweds walk down the aisle, the guests start clapping………* in time with the music *.

Just like the fireflies with synchronized flashing, all the guests at CathedralLite went from random clapping to keeping time with the music of Mr. Handel, sending the couple into married life with communal, bouyant allegretto of well-wishes.
