It was frigid when we walked inside the building.
When I was a little girl, I saw a film where the bride was wearing a pale white coat over her dress. There was a hood on the coat, plus it was framed in pale white fur. The snow was falling she walked the snow covered aisle to her soon to be husband, then from that afternoon on, I dreamed that I would have an outdoor Wintertide wedding when I grew up. Despite all the glamour that Hollywood played into that film, I could not find a single reason to walk down an aisle when it was snowing. The pale white floor length coat that was lined with fur was not in our budget. Most of our relatives were elderly, plus having them rest out on a frigid, snowy afternoon was not doable. The people I was with and I ended up renting a venue, with a lot of windows so we could see the snow outside. Before renting the venue, our husband asked the supervisor if they had a nice Heating plus A/C system in the building. Three times the question was posed, plus three times the building supervisor assured us that the furnace was working perfectly. The afternoon before the wedding, our sisters plus bridesmaids joined myself and others in decorating the venue. It was frigid when we walked inside the building. I hoped it was just that the building supervisor had forgotten to turn the heating on, but I was wrong. There was a note tacked to the refrigerator letting myself and others know the furnace was broken, however they had called the Heating plus A/C corporation. They guaranteed the furnace would work before we arrived at the venue for our wedding reception. I could only hope the furnace was working, because our husband would not be ecstatic if it wasn’t.
