i met shannon just today, when i officiated her marriage to matthew. they'd already had an amazing ceremony in mexico streaming in sunlight and marched through the village by a swarm of mariachis. today featured a touch less pomp but even so, the simple exchange of vows and rings (even at a pan asian-vegan restaurant) feels special and significant. so much so, that i hesitated in stripping down to my istanbul fish t-shirt, until shannon trumped me with a humor much appreciated. shannon and matthew met in las vegas, so of course, in may their baby will emerge: vegas baby. extra points for a 'shotgun' wedding?
on a sidenote: isn't it interesting meeting people's siblings? so similar yet different...(hi erika!)
