I love weddings. I love seeing what people do, the choices they make, how they choose to celebrate their commitment and what aspects of their past and future relationship they focus on.

I also hate weddings. I often find it depressing how normally creative and interesting people seem not to engage with the process of making the ritual their own.

The wedding I attended today was everything great about weddings. The brides were radiant, their families happy and participatory, the ritual was traditional enough to be meaningful and familiar while also being individual enough that the personalities involved and their unique strengths and interests shone. Not only that, but their words and the ceremony they created was inspiring and heartfelt.

So it was good.
