A man may not blog on his wedding day

November 21st, 2004 · No Comments

Somewhere in the big book of rules, I think it says that a man may not blog on his wedding day.

So wrote Grant today before heading to the altar to marry Pamela (picture of chapel included in the post!) – congratulations! Even though he broke the rule, I certainly hope he doesn’t keep breaking the rules and blog from his honeymoon 😉

C.K. Sample recently married Kristin and felt overwhelmed (writing at a later date).

Friday, at my wedding, I felt one emotion, pure joy, pulsing through me, watering my eyes, moving me deeply. I was overwhelmed. This feeling lasted through the entire ceremony until we were standing in the receiving line. It had to be a good 45 minutes of feeling hyper-alive and overwhelmed. Then after the ceremony, for the rest of the evening, I was largely in shock and left reeling from the experience.

I also liked his post describing what it was like to wear a new ring.

I had heard that Scott Johnson’s beloved said yes! but I didn’t remember when the wedding date was. So when I saw Scott at BloggerCon wearing a band on his left hand, I guessed they must be married now and I congratulated him. But I was wrong. I think Scott told me that the wedding would be in January. I hesitate to try to quote him, so instead I’ll summarize: Scott wanted to have an engagement ring because he thought men should have them too, to indicate their commitment and fidelity. I thought it was a cool idea. Congratulations to Scott and Shelley!

All three of these men have used the word “joy” to describe their feelings. One of the wonderful aspects of blogging is that we readers too get to taste a bit of that overwhelming joy…thanks for sharing!
