Yes I was at a gay wedding in Maryland, USA last year. Interestingly (and to my surprise) it was a religious ceremony conducted by a minister of the Episcopalian church (American Anglicans). It was a lavish affair in a rustic retreat in the Catoctin Mountains. There was a string quartet playing in a wooded grove while guests were welcomed with Pimms No 1 and similar drinks. Then it was off to the Pine Cathedral (an open air church) for the ceremony. Then a trek through woods to a wooden lodge where dinner was preceded by cocktail hour - a free bar. (While the ladies all had lovely dresses and hats the terrain was not stiletto friendly
. It was quite enjoyable but different from an Irish wedding. Although the bar was open all the time NOBODY (including me and my boyfriend) got drunk and everyone headed off between 11.00 and 11.30 pm. I couldn't drink too much anyway because I had to drive back down the mountain roads to the town where we were staying.
