Not long ago, I blogged that gay weddings should never be boring. Those grooms I was referring to in that post came back to me a few weeks later and announced that they had an idea for wedding entertainment.
Turns out that one of their guests was Yuri Lane, a world-renowned beat-box artist and husband of their friend, Rachel, the officiant. Yuri provided about 5 minutes of entertainment in the form of a beat-box toast to the grooms referencing their jobs, their dogs, the wedding location (Provincetown) and all sorts of inspired elements.
Yuri was incredible, deeply memorable, hilarious and brilliant. I'm sure the wedding guests are still talking about this very unique form of entertainment. All it takes is 5 minutes to get everyone together, build a memory, then fill the dance floor back up for the rest of the night. It's great advice for not just a gay wedding, but any wedding!
