Fall break was intense. I did a lot of things and accomplished quite a bit of schoolwork as well. However, the most significant thing I got to attend this past weekend was a wedding.
On Saturday, I got to attend the wedding of Mr. Christopher Durr and Ms. Sarah Mariani. Sarah, an alumna of Mount Union, is the sister of my girlfriend, who was the maid of honor, and I, happily, got to attend the festivities. I hadn’t been to a wedding in quite a while, so I was very excited.
The whole thing was incredibly well decorated. Sarah, with an eye for design, and Chris, with an eye for Sarah, put together a beautiful ceremony at their church and then followed up with a reception at Gervasi Vineyard in Canton. Although a little chilly, I don’t think anyone noticed once we were all inside and the reception began.
We listened as the best Man, maid of Honor and father of the bride gave their speeches. After the toasts had been made and the food had been eaten, it was time to dance. And dance we did. Dancing continued on into the night and ended with the bride and groom leaving for their hotel before their honeymoon began the next morning.
It was a really interesting and fun experience being able to see the behind-the-scenes of a wedding, and also attend it as a guest. It turned out even better than I could have imagined and I’m sure that everyone had an absolute blast attending.
