Our Wedding Became a Family Story

Allen Johnson and Connie Young Johnson at Wedding

Connie Young Johnson and Allen Johnson share a story about their wedding: We drove all night from Kansas City to Columbus, Ohio, spent all day in downtown Columbus trying to get our marriage license, and were 1-1/2 hours late to our own wedding!  Allen, who is a singer, was so tired that his voice was raspy, so we decided to play his CD of a Baha’i Faith Marriage Prayer instead. The CD kept skipping at “they are Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunited….”. Then my daughter, who was 10-years old at the time, was in charge of videotaping the event.  When we played the video back, much of it was her interviewing the dog, saying “you got to come to the wedding….”.  Thank God we did a very low-budget wedding, and it only cost us the price of the marriage license! [p.s. You can hear Allen’s song at http://www.projectmelody.com/marriage.htm.]
