Priest Gives Bride & Groom a Special Gift on Their Big Day. ~ Alicia Wozniak


This priest’s voice made my face flush and my hair stand on end.

I don’t go to church. I wasn’t raised in any religion though my family did go to a Protestant church every once in a while at Easter and Christmas. I’ve been on my own spiritual path most of my life.

However, I love church music—most music, in fact.

My feet tap to the beat, my hands clap, my eyes close, colors flood my mind and a smile generally spreads from ear to ear. Tears sometimes well up and I’m not afraid to let them fall down my cheeks. Oh and I have no fear of singing if I know the words (even if I don’t) much to the dismay of my 10 year old.

Music, I think, brings us to a deeply spiritual place and has the power to change our lives if we let it.

This wedding video made me stop and beam. I hope it does the same for you. What a wonderful gift for this bride and groom on their special day.

Alicia Wozniak

Alicia Wozniak was born and raised in Cleveland. “Woz” now lives in Tampa, with the rest of Ohio. This 40 year old can be found teaching Zumba, all over Facebook, figuring out Twitterblogging, and working her full time gig in a marketing division of a textbook publisher. She wonders how many jobs she really needs. If she isn’t moving, she’s unconscious. Life, which includes a Weez, is good and as long as the beer is cold and it isn’t snowing, she’ll keep moving forward—Xanax close at hand.
