Saturday morning dawned and it was clear that any outdoor ceremonies were going to need to go to “Plan B” today. The weather, it seemed, had a mind of its own.
Our day started with an 11 a.m. ceremony at Duquesne University Chapel. Susan was a very Traditional Bride, carrying a free-form cascade.
Our second wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral was all shades of peach, coral, and green. Short, kicky dresses were the order of the day.
Our Bethel Park wedding was moved outside to inside. Fun clutches of gerber daisies for the Bridesmaids, roses added for the bride, and our locally grown farm fresh bouquets gracing the reception tables.
We know that a fun time was had at all 3 weddings.
Cupid, otherwise known as the god of love, was the son of Venus (the goddess of love) and the god Mars.
When a beautiful princess named Psyche caused Venus’s worshipers to lose sight of their respect for her, Venus became angry and envious that Psyche was taking away from her fame. So, in vengeance, she sent Cupid to curse Psyche so that she would fall in love with an unpleasant creature.
However, as Cupid made his way to shoot Psyche with his golden arrow as she was sleeping, she awoke and startled him. Because of her reaction, Cupid panicked and wound up scratching himself with his own arrow which caused him to fall in love with Psyche.
Love sure does happen in strange ways, doesn’t it? Clumsy Cupid!
