Our wedding wasn't Christian, but at one point during the ceremony, I did have the feeling that the entire world had shifted by 90 degrees.

I think Sandy Petersen once discussed on this list how marriages held in big cathedrals were less likely to end in divorce than those in smaller churches. It's unclear whether this is because cathedrals are more likely to be on sacred sites, or simply that bigger buildings are more magical. (I'm sure the Malkioni subscribe to both theories, just to be sure.)
