This is not another book about marriage. The market is flooded with those. The Last Wedding is a Biblical overview of the importance of weddings throughout Scripture. The author takes a humorous, but important look at why weddings are highlighted in the Bible and what they mean for us today. This is what they don't tell you when you get married. Even if you're single, The Last Wedding is one you'll want to know about.
Dave Zuchelli is a man of extremes. He laughs until he cries (or worse). He rides a Harley. He loves with a passion, and he preaches like there's no tomorrow. So it's no surprise that he's written a book about some of the most intimate moments of a person's life.
Dave holds degrees from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. He currently resides in Ashburn, VA and is the pastor of a small congregation l in nearby Great Falls.
He's married to a wonderful young woman named Denise, and between them they have four children and several grandchildren. We know she's wonderful because he says she has to be in order to put up with him.
For the past twenty years, he has been a tent maker in the tradition of the Apostle Paul (although he says the comparison undoubtedly stops there). He recently retired from his day job to spend more time preaching, teaching and writing.

The Genesis account of Adam and Eve is quite brief. In fact, there are facets of the story many readers would like to see fleshed out (excuse the double entendre).
I'm guessing a full rendition of this account could not have made the cut (although the Bible can get rather racy at times). Hollywood would love to get hold of that screenplay.
The Last Wedding
So there was probably no wedding per se. There was a marriage, however. Genesis 2:24 refers to the “uniting” of a man and a woman to become one flesh. Interestingly enough, it immediately follows by saying that Adam and Eve were naked and were not ashamed. Frankly, that sounds a lot like a honeymoon to me. Fortunately (or unfortunately—depending how you look at it), the Bible doesn’t expound upon this any further. It’s seems clear, though, that this was the first marriage, if not the first wedding.
