The picture says it all: YES!But there’s more to the story. First of all, I wanted to get married in Vegas. Khary said that wasn’t proper, so I agreed to go ahead with the big broohaha whoohaha and do it in San Francisco. It is where we met, so it seemed fitting to the occasion. Since we were doing everything ourselves, and I was finding ways to make the ceremony personal, I suggested that we have Burning Love play during the recessional. Khary’s exact response: “Do you really want ‘hunka hunka burning love’ playing as we walk out?” To which I replied, YES!
I did not get my way, but I soon found a better option. We had already ruled out cliché wedding songs for the reception, but there was one that I had to have: Celebration by Kool & The Gang. They play this song when the A’s win, and we are huge fans. When I first suggested it Khary just laughed. Then he realized that I was serious. He said that he’d only agree to it if I yelled “A’s Win!” when the song started playing.
And so the stage was set. Seconds after we kissed for the first time as man and wife, the music started and I lifted my arms in the air and yelled, “A’s Win!” No one actually heard me because people were already hootin’ and hollerin’ and we didn’t have a microphone. But we knew, and we laughed.
For some added nostalgia, here it is:
This is the last in the Five for Ten series by Momalom. The topic is YES!
