So given the extensive Coptic history and the Orthodox ceremonies I'd done in the past, I'd expected this one to be a pretty austere and solemn affair. Nope. Any illusions I had immediately went out the awesome window in a cloud of incense, constant hypnotic singing, capes, crowns, cheers and ululating from the crowd, people climbing all over the pews with cameras and phones in one big colourful awesome celebration of love and pride. I wanna go again. Right now. It wasn't over..not even close; after a whirlwind of fun, cheering and red solo cups with the portraits, the reception was pretty much a constant mosh pit of love and great food (grilled cheese.. I mean, come. on.). with walking sticks. Until you've seen a walking stick mosh pit you've never lived. Ugh, what an incredible day with an incredible couple and their incredible family and friends...
