Hey, ya’ll–I’m blogging! No it’s not the apocalypse, it’s April. It’s raining weddings this time of year, and because I love weddings, this week’s Writer Wednesday is about that very thing. What’s Writer Wednesdays? It’s a year-long blog hop I’m doing with some good friends and wonderful authors. **
Without further ado: I’m a gonna tell you a tale about my wedding day. My then-fiance and I were adamant that we didn’t want a lot of hoopla over our wedding. So much so, that we decided to pseudo-elope! We didn’t tell anyone, picked a day and hired a preacher to meet us at the Ft. Worth Botanical Gardens. We were feeling pretty smug about our secret wedding and it was a dream come true to marry the love of my life in such beautiful surroundings. The simple ceremony was about expressing our vows to love and cherish each other, not about whether the DJ played the right song at the reception.
We had a disposable camera for pictures (this was before the advent of smart phones, ya’ll–give me a break) and all was good…until we asked the preacher to take some photographs for us. This is where it comes in handy to know that the preacher was an amputee. That’s right–he was missing his left arm, which is fine for signing a marriage licence, but operating a camera? Not so much. Have you ever tried to take a picture with one hand? It’s hard. Apparently. Because all of our wedding photos are of the preacher’s pinky finger.
That’s okay. I can still remember it like it was yesterday, even though it was fifteen years ago. It so happens that April is my anniversary month, by the way, and yes, I did get married when I was twelve, why do you ask?
