I should clarify that there are at least two weddings which I would attend no matter where they were. One is a family member. The other person is a friend from college. Those two I would not miss.
My college friend (who attend the same university for graduate school as I, a bit feat when we were in Florida and both ended up in Washington state) is engaged. She was kind enough to warn me that the ceremony would be a full, Episcopalian service. Doesn't matter. Not a thing will keep me from being a witness.
I've felt lighter all evening.
