Josh and Lena planned a small gathering of family and friends for their wedding June 8th at Magnolia Cottage at Lake Johnson at Raleigh. By 7:00 PM the heat had somewhat subsided and we did their ceremony out on the back deck. Lena carried a beautiful bouquet of fragrant star-fire lillies. We honored their parents and Lena's sons Malichi and Javin. Javin could not be with us so Malichi did double duty as a groomsman and ring bearer. We did a sand ceremony that included Malichi and Javin representing the family unity of this newly joined family. See photos before and after the ceremony. After the ceremony everyone was happy to go back inside and celebrate the newlywed couple!
