It reaches a peak about half an hour before a bride is due to leave the house before the ceremony. Bridesmaids rush around remembering little things, mothers fuss, the bridal cars arrive, and everyone is overly excited. But not this bride. She knew exactly what she was doing that day, and why. She was completely calm and sat for me in the middle of the room, while the others rushed around her with their last minute busy-ness. She was ready, there was nothing else she needed to do until she reached the altar at the church.
