My former roomie got married! Woo hoo!
It was a lovely ceremony indeed, and had some cool aspects to it: Around the time the ceremony was supposed to start, the groom came over to where the bride was waiting (inside) on a white horse preceded by most of the guests waving streamers and shouting out “the bridegroom is coming” – as an allegory of Christ and the church at His return. The bride didn’t know exactly when he would arrive (again, mirroring the prophetic second coming of the Messiah)
It was pretty awesome! Afterwards I was able to meet up with some of my Michigan homies and tour downtown Chicago!
