Sweet and Sweaty Wedding


It has been really warm in LA the last few days. HOT, actually. And it was nearing 100 yesterday as I attended the outdoor wedding of my friend Cristina in Pasadena. We were all schvitzing like crazy in our formal attire, but the celebration was great. I have to admit to being really touched by their vows and the ceremony. They made a point of mentioning how happy they were to be getting married at a time when gay marriage was also possible for the first time. Their wedding vows contained references to activism and their mutal responsibility to make the world a better place, not just for their immediate family, but for everyone. The big mystery for most of Cristina’s friends before the wedding was that none of them really knew much about her husband to be, Andrew. The first time most of us had a chance to meet him was at the wedding, and I think everyone was slightly suspicious. But at the point he read his vows to Cristina, there was so much obvious affection in his eyes and so much sincerity in his voice, that he won me over anyway.

    How on earth do you only meet a friend’s husband for the first time at their wedding?
