"Under the spreading oak tree......"

Kennon and Franklin's wedding took place on Franklin's family's farm in Apex on Saturday May 10. In the front is a huge oak tree that formed a beautiful canopy over the wedding site. It felt like we were way out in the country! Kennon was "delivered" to the ceremony in a Bentley and was escorted down the aisle by her father. It was quite windy but the temperature was very pleasant and as Franklin said, the breeze kept the bugs away! Franklin and Kennon, you are a delightful couple and I hope to see you again some day for a renewal or vows or baby blessing ceremony--better yet, both!
Franklin's sister Shana made the couple the most beautiful hand-fasting cord I have ever seen. She wove together ribbons and cords of different colors, attached little fairy bells, and at the ends she had charms for peace, serenity, dreams and wishes. Shana will make one for you just the way you want it. Call her at (919) 559-6335. For the ceremony I wear the hand-fasting cord in, during the ceremony it is looped around their clasped hands and then removed and symbolically replaced by the rings. I then place the cord around the groom's jacket and he gets to wear it from that point on.
