We lit the Unity Candle together and walked back to sign the register. Tim was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT in his timing for the Bach/Gounod/Kanawa Ave Maria:
Fructus ventris tui,
Ora pro nobis
Nunc, et in hora
We signed all the right names in all the right places =) then took our place at the top of the Communion steps. Reverend Miles announced us and we began walking back down the aisle. It occurred to me that I wanted stop just before the first row and do a bow/curtsey to W's Grandparents and parents, then go to the other side and do the same for my parents. Charles and Diana did this just before they walked out and I thought it looked very respectfully beautiful.
But tugging W back and trying to explain what I wanted him to do would have just been clumsy. I wasn't sure how he would handle the ad-libbing either, so I ended up just pausing slightly to smile at Grandma Lin and walked off with W.
We walked out as the CD deck played The Quiet Mountain, a Chinese traditional arrangement played on a Celtic Harp. Tim timed this perfectly too.
