Bridezilla meets the organist

I used to volunteer at our Cathedral, helping out the wedding coordinator.  Every once in awhile, we would get the bridezillas from Hades who wanted everything and anything.  One scary moment came during the offfertory when the Mariachi band one bride contracted played "Spanish Eyes". The rector gave the wedding coordinator a non-verbal signal and she went up to the choir loft to kill the music. 

This video, posted on the CMAA Musica Sacra forum, gave me a much-needed laugh:

As comical as this little video is, it is suprisingly accurate.  Aside from its reference to the Unity Candle (which has no place in Catholic nuptial liturgies), the video is on target.  It also brought back a lot of memories.


  1. Ha! I love the video!


  2. I laughed so hard, Ben, I literally cried. Feel free to post this link on CAF.

  3. How did they get that video of me? That is the bride I am playing for this Sunday and at least 3/4 of the brides I have dealt with over the past 15 years.

  4. DominiSumus:

    Did you get acne from the ordeal?


  5. It's put up!

  6. Actually, I thought the reference to the Unity Candle was a very good backhand slap at the Silent Night--Sure, it would be appropriate when the Unity Candle is lit, precisely because there _isn't_ a U.C.!
