Last summer, my cousin got married, plus she insisted on holding the ceremony plus reception outdoors. She found a appealing meadow with willow trees, wild flowers plus large green lake with a flock of ducks. While the setting is certainly perfect for photographs, it was not ideal for a anniversary. In the middle of August, the outside temperature was up to eighty-six degrees by ten o’clock in the day. The humidity was genuinely horrendous. It had rained the evening before, so the ground was muddy. There was tons of duck poop, swarms of mosquitoes, plus concerns with bees. The entire bridal celebration was saturated with sweat, sunburned plus always scratching at bug bites. A flower girl passed out from heat exhaustion plus a drunken best man fell into the lake. The entire anniversary was a disaster plus all the people left as soon as possible. I spent a lot of time hiding in my car, blasting the a/c plus letting the chilly air hit myself and others in the face. After spending so much time, effort plus currency, my cousin’s special day was ruined by a lack of a temperature control. She could have taken her photos outside plus held the ceremony plus reception inside a temperature controlled locale. It wouldn’t have mattered if it was hot, humid, cold, rainy or windy. Everyone could have loved perfect comfort, plus certainly stayed far longer. Along with cooling system to cool us off, the circulation of air would have kept the locale feeling fresh plus smelling better. Plus, I certainly would have appreciated access to a bathroom. A cooling system would have also resulted in much nicer anniversary pictures.
