Amy and Hank planned their wedding on May 31st to be held their home in South Raleigh but decided to move it a couple of weeks before the wedding to a house that Hank, a contractor, had built and has for sale in Fuquay-Varina. With about 50 guests in attendance, we had their wonderful ceremony in the back garden. It was a ceremony to which the couple added many personal stories and a quotation from one of Dani's favorite authors, Shel Silverstein, about "hug o wars!" Hank and Amy made vows to Dani and she reciprocated with vows of her own to them at her request. The ceremony was touching and sprinkled with funny quotes and stories about the couple's experiences together. I received many comments from the guests on how wonderful and refreshingly different the ceremony was. One couple told me they wished they had had me for their minister at their wedding a few years ago but will call me when they have their 10th anniversary for a renewal of vows ceremony. The ceremony was followed by a delicious pig pickin' and celebration and in the 90 degree weather, the shoes and coats came off fast!
