This was looking like a regular wedding story, but you pinned my ears back with the powerful way you zeroed in on the promise beneath the one I was expecting. Great writing which should rate well.
The title was a good fit to the tenderly told story. The conclusion was unexpected and carried punch. Well done.

Oh, this has me tingling all over and with a tear in my eye. What a lovely wedding that would have been to be at. This is just grand. I think it might have hit a bulls eye somewhere. God Bless.

Oh, this is so lovely. All the details of the wedding guests and the bridal party, but the way in which you ended it was superb. This one is definitely a winner!
What a powerful story on love and friendship. The title is a perfect fit to the story.
God bless.
I love just about all wedding stories, but alas this wasn't just any wedding story. I too was surprised by what was in store. What a poignant, wonderful moment when Mindy comes to join timid April at the piano to dash all her fears away, and to let her know they will "finish the course together." Priceless -- she cared more about her friends feelings than how things would look to others. This was a great story. Also, to have the part about April deploying to Iraq, there are so many times when we assume why something is the way it is and we couldn't be more wrong. I am wondering if this is purely fictional? Thank you for sharing and God's blessings.

You set the scene so beautifully for this touching, heart-warming story! The wedding was even made more lovely by the deep friendship demonstrated between the two young women. There is an excellent message for us all in here about not judging and about loving unconditionally! Great job! :)
