Scripture Reading: Jesus Changes Water Into Wine

When I first meet with a couple to begin making plans for their upcoming wedding, I try to impress upon them that we are not planning a production, but rather we are planning a sacred ceremony. I do this to help them keep things in perspective, to have realistic expectations, to have fun in the planning process, and last but not least, remember that it’s their day. That it should be all about their wants and all about their wishes and no one else’s. That’s an important thing to clarify up front. That it’s their day and they should be the ones doing the planning.
