The big day is finally here. I, Devon Woodcombe, am a married man. Sorry, ladies, I am officially off the market. I just locked down the girl of my dreams, the love of my life, and I must say it feels truly AWESOME!!! Things started out a little rocky, but like anything, I stayed focused and channeled my Awesome.
WEDDING ATTEMPT #1
Tradition. Class. Elegance. Those are staples that my parents live by. That was the goal for the wedding. But it seems a traditional white wedding was not in the cards for Ellie and me. But always remember: there is AWESOMNESS to be found in calamity. There are some old legends that may still hold some truth:
Rain on the wedding day
There is an old myth: If there is rain on the wedding day it will bring good luck to the couple. It was a sign of fertility. Although the sun was shining outside, there was a major rainstorm inside the chapel. Fingers crossed for mini-Awesomes!
Tears on the wedding day
It is also said, that it is good luck if the bride cries on the day of her wedding. She will cry away all her tears, leaving none for the marriage. If that is true, Ellie Bartowksi and I are in very good shape. The sprinklers started the waterworks and Ellie finished the job.
Jeffster rocked the chapel
Jeffster got on that stage and laid it on the line. Any time you have a piano key t-shirt and fireworks inside a chapel, you know that something special is happening. Mostly the reaction was shock and fear amongst the guests. But, I hear there is a new urban legend growing: If JEFFSTER plays your wedding it will bring you good luck. They are the fortune cookie of wedding bands -- no one likes them, but for some reason they bring good luck.
WEDDING ATEMPT #2
The beach wedding was truly AWESOME. It was small, informal and unexpected. There is nothing like looking around and seeing all familiar faces. This wedding may not have had the pomp and ceremony that my folks had planned on, but when I looked into Ellie's eyes I knew it was right. I don't know how Chuck pulled it off...
A wedding is a celebration of the unique bond that you share with your significant other. There will be a lot of people telling you that things should be done this way or that. Go with your gut, and you will have the most genuine and Awesome experience. All I have to do now is plan an equally unique and Awesome honeymoon -- I may stick with this beach theme.
