OTHER THAN THAT, THE WEDDING WENT OFF WITHOUT A HITCH

A South Florida man spent what was supposed to be his wedding night in jail after breaking the nose of another man who refused to move out of the way of the beachfront wedding pictures, police said.

Or maybe a good lawyer.

About 30 years ago, when I was playing clarinet in a community concert band, we took a roadtrip to perform on Mackinac Island (Michigan) for the band's 25th anniversary season. Somebody screwed up or didn't follow procedure and double-booked a wedding in the same park at the same time as our concert. The wedding planner came running over in a panic when she saw us setting up. She asked what kind of music we played; we told her it was acid punk rock. We also may have offered to play "Stars and Stripes Forever" immediately after the couple was pronounced man and wife, but my memory might be playing tricks on that point. We had the poor woman almost ready to faint.

(Seriously, it was all good. When the wedding was ready to proceed, we paused the concert and they had a large audience present to witness their marriage. I'm sure it made a good story for their kids.)

Hey, it's Florida, Jake.
