The bridal party is on a bridge in the background of this
photo. I am at the extreme right, in center aisle, speaking
to the couple and their guests.
What would the
effect had been if I, as do most if not all other ministers
at this venue, stood on the bridge with the couple and had
them and their bridal party turn their backs to these guests?
Look at the guests
to the right and to the left of me. See the attentiveness.
My ceremonies are designed on theatric principals, not in
just replicating a centuries old ritual.
