Crow Wedding

I performed a wedding ceremony this weekend. Both of the students had been in my youth group in my youth pastoring days. It's such a joy to see former students growing up and moving on in life and it's such an honor to be a part of the process. Anyway...funny story here... When the couple went to light the unity candle the wick broke and so there was no way the candle would light. So I had them just extinguish their individual candles and move on to signing their wedding license. So then I spotted a candle elsewhere on the stage that was already lit, but could serve as the unity candle. So after the song ended, I walked over and grabbed it and it began to spill hot wax on the floor as I walked, so I used my left hand to catch all the dripping wax. Now my hand was burning, but my microphone was on, so I couldn't yell, so I just had to walk across the stage as wax poured into my hand! So then I returned to my place with wax all over my hands! Otherwise, everything went really well!

Good ceremony. Good stage presence by the band and pastor(s), and most importantly... Everyone was ushed in a timely and concise manor!!!
