As the pastor of a small town church, we don't have a lot of couples in the church who are getting married, but I often am called for ceremonies at local outdoor locations or even in the church for couples who simply want a church wedding.
I know some pastors that hate doing weddings. I am not one of those people.
I like being the mediator between families and helping them come together for a special day. I like working with photographers. I think secretly at one time I wanted to be a party planner, and so this is a little way to experience that =)
But what I love the most about weddings is not the flowers or the dresses or even the food (and we all know that I love food!).
It is actually the same reason that I love funerals... I get the chance to tell someone's story.
