I thought it was remarkable that throughout it all no one panicked. Joel and Alicia were determined that no one and no thing would ruin the joy, excitement, and fun of their great day.
While waiting, guests were served cocktails and had a grand time mingling and meeting-up with old friends and family.
Everyone acknowledged that glitches happen. This was one more thing that would be added to the stories told years from now.
This is what I think is the difference between a “perfect” and a “magical” wedding. Perfection strives to impress. Magic strives to remember what is most important—love, loyalty, family, friends, and the good hearts and wills with which they surround a couple.
Alicia and Joel’s family and friends brought more music with them than any DJ could offer.

Rings are an ancient symbol
blessed & simple;
round like the sun,
like the eye,
like arms that embrace.
for love that is given
comes back round & round again.
Therefore, may these symbols remind you
that your love,
like the sun, illumines.
That your love,
like the eye, must see clearly.
And that your love,
like arms that embrace
is a grace upon this world.
