Sacrilegious Is Never Good

David Diamond was heads over heels in love with Natalie Marcone. She was everything he ever wanted in a woman. She had eyes that were dark brown and were like saucers. She was tall and her body was simply perfect. She worked out at least twice a day and she cared about her appearance. She was smart and had a great sense of humour. She was the kind of woman you fell in love with as soon as you met her.

David had met Natalie through his friend Alan Newman. Natalie was an Events Planner and Alan ran a successful Business to Business Advertising Agency. David had his own small distillery and was crafting a bourbon that was getting rave reviews. David had a special tasting party and Alan invited Natalie to come along. As soon as Natalie and David met, they were inseparable.

The relationship started that night and had grown stronger every day. They had been together for six months and David Diamond had never been happier. He and Natalie went away on mini holidays to places like Lucerne, Switzerland. They discovered that they enjoyed each other's company more than they could have ever imagined.

David wanted to marry Natalie, but she was not interested in converting and he wanted to marry a Jewish woman. They had discussed the situation on a regular basis, but Natalie was firm in her desire to remain Roman Catholic. It was the only fly in the ointment, and it was a big fly.

Natalie kept saying she knew a Re-Constructionist Rabbi who would marry them without her converting and it would be a Jewish wedding without her being Jewish. David dismissed the idea, as he had always wanted a proper Orthodox service.

Natalie was planning a huge Wedding for a friend, and she invited David to give her a hand at the Church. She was there to meet with the caterer, and the design people. He accepted and they were soon inside the Church of St. Monica. It was gorgeous and very well appointed.

The taste testing was a lot of fun and the caterer left five bottles of wine to sample. The designer had some amazing ideas for the reception and Natalie hired her on the spot. After the caterer and the designer left, David and Natalie kept imbibing. They had arrived at the Church by Uber and would leave the same way.
