....take place from late October through December, after the autumn harvest. The days for weddings are Tuesdays and Thursdays, so there is time in between to get ready for and clean up after each. Even also, it can get pretty busy during the "wedding season," with some Amish going to two or three weddings in one day!
Jack and I could only get as close to an Amish Wedding as we got in the video. When he wasn't with me, however, I came back and drove right into the area. I half expected the Amish to surround me and do nasty things to me for entering their farm and Wedding area. There was nothing of a kind.
If I had some journalistic background, hard-nosed with 'nothing stopping me to get the story' type of attitude; I would have gotten out of my Jeep and just gone in and started to film. But I have more respect for people, and more respect for the Amish.
I did ask a lady, before I turned around and left, "I would love to videotape your wedding today."
"Thank you for stopping by," she said, "but that is as far as you are going to get."
