Wedding in Hollywood

I cannot count the times that I have attended a wedding, I cannot even count the times that I have been chosen as a part of the Bridal Entourage. At 25, I am still invited to be a bridesmaid in a wedding and I just recently attended a Hollywood Themed Wedding of my cousin.
This is the BEST WEDDING I have ever gone to. Why? Because the gospel chosen during the wedding is best suited for the Church and for the event. The Wedding rites were held at the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and the gospel was all about the Wedding at Cana.
This is an excerpt of the Gospel:

Chapter 2
1 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
2 Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding.
3 When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”
4 (And) Jesus said to her, “Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come.”
5 His mother said to the servers, “Do whatever he tells you.”
6 Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings, each holding twenty to thirty gallons.
7 Jesus told them, “Fill the jars with water.” So they filled them to the brim.
8 Then he told them, “Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.” So they took it.
9 And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, without knowing where it came from (although the servers who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom
10 and said to him, “Everyone serves good wine first, and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one; but you have kept the good wine until now.”
11 Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs in Cana in Galilee and so revealed his glory, and his disciples began to believe in him.”

The Church is a church made for Mary, and so getting wedded there, one must search for a Gospel that is connected with Mary and blended with a wedding story too. So, choosing The Gospel of John is the best.
