a (kentucky) jew-hova wedding story
iraqi jews, reformed jews, buddhists, a gay baptist in a committed relationship, engaged babymomma's, single babydaddies, twice married's, mohawked punks, coiffed glamour goddesses, neuroscientists, mechanics, artists, fixie bike delivery boys, divorced MILF's, trustafarian's, 6 figure income with grandkids, irregular paycheques with no 401k , tattoos and bling, designer suits, hawain shirts, rock musicians and flautists, closet republicans, uber liberal lefties-- and; social workers (we didn't start the fire).
the guest list was the united colours of benetton tidily arranged on fold out chairs, watching a perimenopausal rabbi, sporting a livestrong bracelet, sing in hebrew under the chuppah (a jewish "easy-up"), that the groom had finished building that morning (as well as custom made yarmulkes, hot off the sewing machine, for the entire wedding party).
where else could the bride be bitten by a pig earlier in the day, and be married against the backdrop of dromedaries, zebra's and dairy cows.
