Prompt:   Wedding Details, what makes it personal
Kathabela Wilson
We have been at two weddings of our nieces in two weeks. 
Both were very personal, expressing the character and vision of each couple. 
Today’s wedding reminded us of our own, 
because the couple performed themselves, voice and guitar, 
for their guests as the main part of their ceremony. 
This was even more than a detail. It was a beautiful centerpiece. 
They love Celtic music and perform together in bands at pubs. 
Sara sings and Zak plays various instruments. 
At our wedding Rick and I performed a full length concert over an hour, 
and luckily we had enthusiastic applause… 
because the encore–was the 5 minute wedding ceremony. 
Every wedding has innumerable details. 
What were yours? 
What special touches expressed your personalities. 
Or what weddings have you known that did this–family, friends? 
This wedding the couple placed a wonderful globe in view so we could all make our mark on it.
I would love to have you share if your wish in comments any Wedding Details
that made your wedding personal.
Or of  weddings you have been to that have done this.
