What’s the wedding Story?

I talk so much about stories, that sometimes, I almost forget to talk about what I think a story is. A couple recently asked me “So what’s the story here?” And I must say that I was surprised. No one had ever bothered to ask before. On the surface, it seems like every wedding story is the same, isn’t it? It’s a wedding, after all. But, then, most romances are just about the same too. Boy meets girl (or vice versa). Boy loses girl. Boy wins back girl. And I realized that the story isn’t the plot structure. The plot of almost every wedding is the same. Each story is quite different. The story is about the places the couple has been and the things they were doing. More importantly, it is about how they react to what they were doing. The story is the excitement or nervousness from the bride and the fulfillment of those feelings at the ceremony. It is about the lifelong friendship between the best man and the groom. It’s the playful gestures between the couple that let us know how they’re feeling, and the stolen moments off in the corner that tell us that it really was a special day. The story is the collection of moments that informs us about  how the couple feels about the wedding and each other, and there’s nothing else quite like it. Do we do a good job at telling stories? When you watch our samples do you get a sense of who the couple was?
