On a fantastically lovely spring day, Friday the 13th of April 2012, twenty-three couples made vows of commitment. Each had eight guests, their own ceremony, their own portrait session, a reception and a trip with Boston Duck Tours. The Museum of Science was the setting and the city of Boston was their backdrop. The couples varied in age, race, religion, sexual orientation, number of children, place of residence, but all had two things in common, they loved the person that stood by them through this crazy wonderful day and all were part of the first ever Race to the Altar.
For Dave and I, it was a day to test our skills and creativity, a day for celebration and a day of mad fun. And yes, it was a bit exhausting. It was, after all, one typical wedding season condensed into one day. But it was worth it, because the stories we heard and the emotions we witnessed were nothing short of amazing. And so I share with you the Race to the Altar Wedding Ceremonies.
And so concludes the first installment of the Race to the Altar story.
Throughout, I must thank the people who made this day possible; there was one hell of a fabulous crew of professionals and volunteers.
