As I predicted, I was enchanted by the service (it was the same one used when the Mr. and I tied the knot 27 years ago). I adore the poetry of the Book of Common Prayer. There are parts of it still that can move me to tears. I have always loved the way the bride and groom's hands are wrapped together in the stole of the priest with the pronouncement, "Those who have been joined together, let no man put asunder..." So beautiful.

It was wonderful to witness this bit of history -- albeit at a very early hour -- and to share the experience with my dearly beloved daughter.
