Handfasting study

From the page I was reading for heaven knows what reasons:
“Richard and I, if we do finally get married, know that our wedding will be a lot like our friends’. Maybe not the theme, although we do have that in common, but in the less than traditional aspect. There will be no bridesmaids – my best friends are all men – so they’ll be my honor attendants, which seems only right since they are the ones who have defended my honor for the past few years. Richard’s attendants will include his ex-wife (it’s a long story), my daughter, and his token male friend who just happens to be gay. A practicing pagan will be singing “The Lord’s Prayer” and my son will escort me down the isle. For any number of reasons, not the least of which is that I look horrible in it, I will not be wearing white. We are planning on marrying at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, (I’m almost 40 years old and I still make concessions for Daddy, “If it doesn’t happen in a church, it isn’t a wedding.”), but Mother Mary, not Father Bob, will conduct the ceremony. Not just any ceremony, the original ceremony from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. We too, like many of our contemporaries are defining ourselves and creating our own traditions.”

Now that would be a wedding I would like to attend :). Sounds fantastic and I wish all the best for them when they finally will do it.
