I have attended about four thousand wedding receptions(or at least it seems like that many). Never have I been as emotionally caught up in any of them as this last one. I can't even say it was a couple I was very close to. I was actually surprised that I received an invitation. They work for the same company as I do, but I only run across them occasionally . Yet there I was, sobbing like a baby when they performed this magical unity ceremony. As the flames of union became one, something inside me absorbed the essence of the moment. Something I haven't felt for a very long time. It evoked the emotion from my own wedding so many years ago.
