Pastors are always more than a little apprehensive during weddings. Why? Because even though the couple you just married are thrilled that after months of preparation they have finally been pronounced man and wife, that moment is immortalized on film.
There in the background, behind the obvious joy of the moment, is pastor buzzkill-caught with a disapproving scowl on my face even as the newlyweds express their heart-felt joy.
I'm glad this charming couple has found humor in this photo--they teased me with it--and I'm sure they know there was nothing about that day of which even remotely I disapprove.
Here is yet another reminder that the camera catches all, including my lunch backing up, or that moment when I started to relax, or even when my thoughts began to turn to what it is that I was to do next in the ceremony.
Whatever I was thinking or digesting, here I am, pastor buzzkill in all my glory! The moral to the story, "smile!" Even when it hurts to smile!
And don't eat fast food in a rush before conducting a wedding . . .
