Katie and Greg came to see me in January to talk about me officiating their wedding in November 2008 and we signed a contract. Then, in March they called to say they had decided not to wait until November and wanted to have a small wedding on June 14th with just family and a few close friends. They would forgo the bridesmaids and groomsmen and do a much simpler affair. Ah, yes, or so they thought! Well as the weeks progressed, each time I checked with Katie, the number of guests grew and grew to a final crowd of 75 with three attendants each, Adam--a friend who is a DJ, and all the trimmings! They pulled it all together and it was beautiful though the humidity and heat also kept increasing that day! They had their wedding in Greg's father, Charlie's backyard. They got a gazebo and put up tents and chairs. Katie was a beautiful bride and her bridesmaids wore brilliant red dresses. We had a sand pouring ceremony which their kids, Carter and Luke, loved being part of. Carter escorted in the bride and Luke came in with a pretty little flower girl. So you see, you can pull together a nice wedding in a short amount of time! Congratulations, Greg and Katie.
