A wedding ceremony can be nerve-racking for anyone, in any situation, but that's especially true when you're not a huge fan of standing or talking in front of people. The quiet groom is not unusual at all. Even the most confident groom can be a little gunshy in that situation, but always the most meaningful of moments and the most powerful of feelings. As a non-denominational minister and professional wedding officiant, I see all kinds - the quiet groom, the rock-n-roll groom, the crying groom, the alpha groom - and in all cases, the mood of the wedding ceremony depends on the vibe of that man. That vibe is one my favorite things about the wedding ceremony.
