plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

When picking an officiant, especially when you don’t belong to a church, many couples turn to their family and friends.  But what most people don’t do is think of their mom.  Usually the obvious choice would be a Dad or Grandfather, maybe even a close friend.  But why not have your mom perform the ceremony?

That’s what happened here.  That lady there on the left side of the photo is the groom’s mom.  And look at how happy she is!
