I saw – on this rainy and chilly and blustery, and then beautiful and sunny, and changing back again day – four different wedding parties on Fountain Square, getting their Very Important Day pictures taken in front of the Fountain.
It was really quite amazing! This was also the Cincinnati Celtic Festival, which is why I was there – having a grand time, by the way. And since October 2 is normally a wonderfully weathered day, I wasn’t surprised that a lot of weddings had been scheduled. And 10/2/2010 would seem to be a pretty auspicious date – a 6 in numerology, centered on the home, beauty, peace and justice.
But on Fountain Square? Who knew? When did it become a destination, an in place to have wedding pictures taken to mark the occasion? I’m not sure if any of them were actually being married on the Square, but I expect all the nearby hotels were happy.
And what fun to see all those different brides and grooms and wonderful attendants! All set to the background of really great Celtic music all day long. A treat of a day.
