Every once in awhile I get to be a part of a teensy-tiny wedding. Chatti and TJ were married last week in Santa Cruz, and had just six guests. They picked a secluded spot along a walking path in Santa Cruz, spread out some blankets on a log that looked like it was put in place just for their wedding, decorated the area with some flowers they got at a farmers market the day before, and proceeded to have one of the most heartfelt, charming wedding ceremonies that I’ve ever witnessed.
They didn’t have time to order wedding bands (they planned it in five days!) so they twisted some copper wire for the ring exchange. TJ sang to Chatti as she walked up, and they sang a duet to “In Spite of Ourselves” in the middle of the ceremony. (if you haven’t heard that song, listen to it right now)
They flipped a coin to see who got to go first for vows, and then they kissed and pinky-promised. Small wedding, big hearts.
