back to san francisco

Second time in two months. This time it was a bachelor's party for a high school friend. He is marrying another high school friend and they asked me to officiate the wedding. Not sure if I know what I'm doing, but I've been learning about ceremony details and refreshing myself on the meaning of marriage. None of it seems particularly difficult, but there is a weighty feeling of responsibility hovering over such a large life event.

It's been fun meeting with them and getting to know them as a couple. They've been so occupied with the logistics that the finer points of marriage haven't really settled in. I've been able to get them to think a little bit more about the symbolic and personal aspects of the commitment they are entering. We are trying to get a more concrete script worked out this week. The wedding is going down in a month and I'm really looking forward to it.

Any advice married people?
