Gary Smith has been called the best magazine writer to ever live – in part because he’s won more National Magazine Awards than anyone else. Gary also gave an award-winning toast at Cal’s wedding. Little did Cal know back then that after Gary retired from Sports Illustrated, he’d take his magnificent interviewing and writing skills to an entirely new place. Matrimony. Gary crafts the most unique and poignant wedding ceremonies imaginable for people he cares about. He’s even ordained to administer the ceremonies! Be prepared to laugh over the next 45 minutes . . . while also getting a glimpse into how the right questions can create great performance art.
