It's wedding season, and brides, grooms and their photographers are popping up in scenic spots everywhere. What makes a wedding meaningful? Can stressful wedding preparation taint a marriage? What are some of the most special moments -- and the biggest flops -- of weddings you've been to or been in?

Host: Dave Iverson


  • Kathryn Storke, founder and editor of, a wedding blog
  • Meg Keene, author of "A Practical Wedding: Creative Solutions for Planning a Beautiful, Affordable, and Meaningful Celebration" and publisher and executive editor of the website

We consider weddings -- from blowout seven-tier cake affairs to guerrilla weddings where participants illegally descend on a premiere spot for a quickie ceremony.
