Well, my wedding that is. Yep folks, I just tied the knot this weekend with my beautiful bride, Mitzi Worsham. And it was great!
We couldn’t just do anything ordinary, so we opted for a surprise wedding. The only ones who knew in advance about it were our parents and our girls. Everyone thought they were coming to an “engagement” party. And amidst the socializing and the sitdown dinner in the banquet hall, the adjoining room’s walls were flung open to a minister saying, “Come on over, we’re having a wedding!”
Chad Mitchell, Mitzi’s cousin and pastor of The Mission in Abilene officiated and often brought us to tears. The best way to describe it might be an email intercepted this morning from a relative:
We just had a wonderfully, glorious time at the Surprise Wedding of Mitzi and Mark! We wish all our part of the family had been there to enjoy it but it was their choice and they paid the price!!! They certainly missed out on a really special wedding. I just thought it was truly the most beautifully done that I have even been privileged to observe! Chad was wonderful… he had many, many wonderful words to say to Mitzi and Mark and to us all! And Mitzi’s vows were outstandingly written… Mark’s were great but Mitzii’s beat him out for the best! (editor’s note: ARGGGHH! And I worked on those for days!!) And the vows they each did to Alex and Taylor were the perfect way to tell the girls and everyone that they are now all a family. It was just a wonderfully orchestrated wedding…. well done, but truly personal…. I loved it! Can you tell? So, we’ve got to hit the sack early tonight…. don’t think it will take us long to be asleep tonight after this whirlwind of a weekend! But, as I said, we loved every minute of it!
I’m hoping to be able to upload some images from the experience soon. My good friend, Tonya Hagy, was generous enough to be our “official” photographer. Although she claimed she was so nervous shooting another photographer’s wedding, she did wonderfully. Now I just have to get on the ball with all the other weddings we’re up to our eyeballs in here at the studio. We’ll be in Lake Tahoe soon, shooting a wedding for a wonderful bride and groom. Now I completely know what it’s like to be on the other side of the camera at a wedding. Expect good changes friends!! In life, in love, in laughter, and in images!!
