How I Invited Gene McDaniels to my Wedding

first dance

On Saturday, November 2nd, I married the love of my life, my best friend Kirah. The day was, as many say, a whirlwind. At our ceremony, she entered to a rare live performance of “I Hear a Symphony” by the Supremes. We recessed together to “In France They Kiss On Main Street” by Joni Mitchell, a favorite of ours as well as my Uncle John’s.

At last, after an unforgettable ceremony and cocktail reception, we finally found ourselves at Bubba’s Sulky Lounge, on the lit disco dance floor in their back room.

To thank Gene for the part he has played in my life, and to honor his absence, Kirah and I chose “Feel Like Makin’ Love” as our first dance, and it was magical. Even the Rice Krispie guys thought it was sweet.
