Most of the people in that room might have guessed once the first break in the music happened that something special was going on, but most probably weren’t privy prior to the nuptials.  Keeping some of the magic and specialness to yourself during your marriage is okay – no, it’s essential.  Mr. and Mrs. are going to do just fine.
