Yes, a commitment ceremony, but it was the same as any other wedding I had ever been to. I was the best man, they said vows, they exchanged rings . . . Only thing different was that no paperwork for the State was filed. I'd have to discuss with my dad on the details I do know they had to discuss it with the preacher/minister, but I was not involved with that part of the discussion.
