I made several new friends at a wedding I attended in Virginia. Many friendly people, in high spirits, cooperating and showing off by making the most incredible food and making every welcome.
Instead of the normal bride’s wedding march (think, “Here comes the bride, etc.”) the bride picked music that started out low and soft and picked up after about 30 seconds into a brassy burlesque as she made her way down the stairs. The effect was amazing – she looked, not innocent and demure, but brash and confident. The musical joke was greatly appreciated and commented on many times through the celebration.
