Four Luck Day: Kathy & Dave’s 4/7/12 Wedding

On April 7th, 2012 the souls of my mother, Kathy, and her new partner, David were joined as one through the ceremony of marriage. Between 100-150 friends and family members joined at sunset to watch them make their love official and everlasting through law and celebration. Jamaican reggae artist, Gyptian’s “Hold Ya” played as the couple’s 14 closest family members and friends led the bride in through the procession down the white lace aisle. Many danced down the aisle, I was dipped by my fiance before we got onto the stage, and others simply showed their bliss through gentle smiles and glistening eyes. The ceremony was prompt, honest, and was filled by the purple glow of the Phoenix sunset as if the city itself were blessing the couple. After the ceremony, John Lennon’s “When I’m 64” played as the audience took photos and the couple signed their marriage certificate. The rest of the night was spent dancing, socializing, listening to a friend’s poetry reading, enjoying the catered Cheba Hut sandwiches, and culminated with a fire performance at the night’s end. Before leaving, many guests helped clean up all the trash and recyclables, and made the venue look as if an event never even happened.
