A Commonly Missed Miracle

I was at a wedding last night, and I was shocked to see I was the only person who observed the great miracle that occurred that night. I was even more surprised as this is a miracle that occurs at just about every religious wedding, and yet no one seems to notice it.

The miracle is that it seems that no matter how close to sunset the wedding begins, when inevitably after the chuppah they announce that they will be davening Ma'ariv - it turns out that a large amount of religious men have "Already dovened". This miracle seems to increase exponentially if at the same time as Ma'ariv the first course is being offered.  Who could have guessed that the sun sets early for so many men? It's a miracle!
