Albert and I flew to Cincinnati at the beginning of the month for my cousin Kenzie’s wedding. She married her husband Jamison at the beautiful St Mary’s Cathedral Basilica in Covington, Kentucky. I had never been to the basilica before, and it’s one of the most magnificent cathedrals that I’ve ever seen in the states. For my Cincinnati readers, Catholic or not, it’s worth a visit for the architecture alone. As this non-religious person can attest, you won’t catch fire or get nailed to a cross just for stopping by. My cousin Sandy’s kids saw the stone gargoyles atop the building and all of the bloody Jesus statues and thought it was some sort of Halloween house of horrors. I kept my mouth shut laughing and thought, “Just wait till they learn about The Inquisition!”
The wedding was beautiful and the reception was a blast. Kenzie and her mom Lori are both amazing graphic designers, so the banquet hall was art directed to perfection. They made their own table floral centerpieces out of found branches, tissue paper, old books, and vintage jewelry, so they were totally unique. We danced all night and it was a great party to kick off what is sure to be a great marriage.
Kenzie asked me to sing “The Prayer” at her wedding ceremony. To hear a sample of the song, click the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61d0RRXhNYM
