|West Virginia's State Capitol|
|A capital spot for a wedding.|
The wedding ceremony is over as my tour finishes; wedding guests are in line for hors d’oeuvres. The tuxedoed young men—no longer nervous—laugh and give each other pats on the back. The young women —visibly relieved—smooth their dresses and fix their hair. Caroline tells me that anyone who wishes to may celebrate their nuptials here; each year the state capitol hosts more weddings than the year before. I wonder—are other state capitol buildings open for weddings?
