It's been "Pennies From Heaven" around here.
And our current rainy weather reminds me
of a recent wedding that went with Plan B.
Set in a gorgeous garden spot in Saratoga,
we played in one location for the ceremony,
another location for the cocktail party,
and a third location for the dinner.
Originally all locations were to be outdoors,
but all bets were off when rain was predicted
the day before.
Sure enough, the rains came and a last-minute
tent saved the day.
No, what REALLY saved the day was teamwork.
All the pros involved -- the wedding planner,
officiant, caterer, florist, photographer,
musicians, DJ, and all the rest -- knew the
schedule, knew our parts to play, and
what the others needed from us.
Accustomed to working together, we kept
checking with each other all afternoon.
This was no time for stubborn prima donnas
bullying their own way at anyone's expense.
No time for someone's mother-in-law jumping
in and taking over single-handed.
We all made lots of last-minute adjustments
And with many
hasty conferences, we
created a perfect
for the happy couple
and their guests.
