A Singer Makes All The Difference

Today I officiated Chrissi & Jeff's beautiful wedding at the Best Western Inn at Hunt's Landing in Matamoras, Pennsylvania.

Weather forced the ceremony to be moved indoors, but no problem: the indoor ceremony room is quite elegant and I've officiated many fabulous weddings in there. Anyway, our bride & groom were definitely feelin' the vibe from the get-go, but the magical energy really cranked up a notch when Chrissi's niece Mallory sang a sweet, pure & extremely heartfelt rendition of a pop ballad called "I Turn To You". Suddenly the emotion in the room was so palpable. Mallory's innocent and sincere voice touched every heart in the room. You can almost always feel the magic at a wedding ceremony, but some ceremonies just take your breath away... this was surely one.

Other nice touches to the ceremony included a Unity Candle lighting, a Hands Blessing, and the couple recited unique vows in unison. Not to mention the recessional hymn: the Ramones' rockin' version of "What a Wonderful World". This was one to remember!
