IAN:Thursday 4/25/2024 Next Stop-The Wedding – Daily Kos

2 minutes, 36 seconds Read

On Saturday, I will perform a wedding ceremony in San Clemente, Ca.  It is a beautiful city on the coast.  I am speaking as a Deputy Commissioner of Civil Marriage for the first time since the pandemic, officiating at the wedding of a long time friend’s neice.

As you can see by Itzl’s concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. If you’re not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!

IAN is a great group to join, and a good place to learn to write diaries. Drop one of us a PM to be added to the Itzl Alert Network anytime! We all share the publishing duties, and we welcome everyone who reads IAN to write diaries for the group! Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!

I sent a couple of examples of my work to the happy couple and they returned a script that combined most of my words but filled in with personal information.  It will sound good and have the added advantage of being short.  When I did this kind of work at “City Hall” I married 16 couples in 4 hours twice a month.  That gave me about 15 minutes from “Welcome” to “Everything is signed and I will have it recorded.” so they kept that pacing mostly.  When I worked, I would then be off for the next waiting couple but on Saturday, I am invited to lunch.  Good deal.

The trip will take at least an hour but that’s not bad.  I won’t be staying the night.  The couple is having another “wedding” the next day with a larger group of friends and family.  My part is legal, providing the signature on the marriage license.  The next day will be free form, with their best friend officiating.  Bill and I did that when we got married because we couldn’t find someone to come out to our venue and leave Jesus at home, so we went to a Church of Life minister with our two witnesses and did about a 15 minute ceremony.  Two week later, we had of “wedding” without needing an official.  It was wonderful! 

Anyway, I am glad that I now have all the documents, the oath of office signed and stamped with the official stamp, the script and the directions.  I still need to try on my dress (one and only) but it will be fine.  So I am set.  Wish me luck.
