A Potluck Wedding

Recently it was my privilege to attend a wedding that was put together on very short notice. The ceremony grew from a small-room gathering of couple, witnesses, clergyman, and several guests to a modest celebration of around forty accompanied by harp, refreshments, and local crow flyby.

Temporarily bed-ridden, the bride organized the ceremony with her smart phone. Room service kept distractions at bay, and enthusiastic friends and family did the leg work. In four short days, herself pulled the details together to afford the community a lovely gathering that focussed on what really matters.

A potluck wedding seems like a sane compromise between elopement and home ceremony. After that, the sky’s the limit.
