"Get a shot of the flowers!"
I don't need to be told twice. Or once, for that matter. Camera in hand, I've been recording this whole shindig since the moment it started. Everything from the flowers to the drape-y stuff on the outside of each pew.
"Did you get a shot of the flowers?"
"Yes, Dawn," I nod and continue to pan the church. The guests are just about done getting seated. I hope. This suit is uncomfortable and I'm hungry. The reception can't happen until after the wedding starts - therefore, can we get on with it already?
"I can't believe its finally happening," she gushes very girly like. "Do you think --"
"I should go get a shot of the... thing," I stammer and get away as fast as I can. This wedding stuff is okay, really. Right up to the point any of the girls get their teeth on it. Then they just keep talking and talking.
Besides, as official Scooby photo-documentarian type person, I do need to get a shot or two of the... thing.
Who'd have thunk that Xander would be getting married. Finally. I mean, yeah, he almost did back in the day to Anya. But that didn't happen and then with the whole eye thing we all sort of figured that he wouldn't ever ... well, you know.
Not that any of us have gotten hitched, either.
But, there she was one day. Emma DeLauro.
She's a mutant. A genuine comic-book style mutant. So's her 'family'. They call themselves Mutant X. Like a band of superheroes.
I was giddy, I'll admit it, when we first ran into them. A guy doesn't get to meet mutant superheroes everyday.
Okay.... except, now I do get to meet them every day. Meet with them, I mean. Because we teamed up. Scoobies and Mutant X.
(Does that make us Scoobies X?)
The rest, as they say, is history. Xander and Emma hit it off quicker than I've ever seen any crazy couple do outside of a love spell. Don't worry, we checked for love spells just to be sure. And by 'we', I mean me and Dawn. Willow thought we were nuts.
What they've got is the real thing.
"Andrew - its starting."
"Right." Camera - check.
Handkerchief - check.
I always cry at weddings.
