Last weekend, my dear friend Marie and her fiance, Gordon, finally tied the knot. It turned out to be an amazing weekend in Carmel. The weather was beautiful and warm. Gordon’s family came in from Scotland, and Marie’s friends and family travelled from Japan, the northeast, and the midwest.
The wedding ceremony was an eclectic blend of traditions. Marie made a stunning bride and wore a red Japanese silk robe over a traditional dress while Gordon and his groomsmen were in kilts. It was like scene from Highlander 3! I’m kidding… sorta… There were bagpipe players, Marie’s mother sang a traditional Japanese piece, and their friend, (Rev) Kurt Elling, presented a touching service. There was no shortage of wonderful music this day. At the reception, Gordon and Kurt had a little impromptu session.
Thanks to the internets, some video of Marie’s Wedding is online:
