Let’s just assume for a moment that you’re planning a wedding.. Say it’s your own wedding.. I would highly recommend taking a good long look at the wedding of these here my clients.. Let’s call them Anna & Brendan – that’s what their names are..
Anna & Brendan are prime examples of how to hold what is traditionally a very important (and nerve-wracking) ceremony to officially announce to the world that you & your partner are, in every way possible, choosing each other over all other humans for the rest of your lives.. I’m not saying that love & weddings are not a big deal – they’re a MASSIVE deal, and should be treated as such.. I just believe that it’s ok to be yourselves during said ceremony.. It’s ok to look around at the people there with you, it’s ok to snort-laugh, kiss before “the kiss”, high-five, whatever – it’s your ceremony so be yourself.. Yes, it’s official.. Yes it’s legal.. But guys, please don’t take yourselves, or life too seriously.. You’ll be happier people, probably live longer, & have much less chance of getting cancer, you’ll sleep better, you’ll be better at sexing each other, and all your wildest dreams might just come true..
Do what Anna & Brendan do.. LET GO.. and perform the best damn choreographed routine to Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” i’ve ever seen in my whole life, & give it everything you got!
Anna & Brendan.. We salute you!
go on.. press play..
