Hearts of Steel

As the officiant of a wedding for a couple I had met only once before, I was faced with the challenge of creating a unique and significant experience while knowing little about what they find unique and significant. After considering the location (below St. John’s Bridge) and the symbolism of marriage, I realized nothing spoke more of love and connection than two hearts woven together during the ceremony. With a couple quick strikes to pre-forged steel, two hearts came together.
