Mid-week Wedding in the Rose Garden
Mark and Edyta chose to get married Thursday morning June 12th at the lovely Raleigh Rose Garden located behind the Raleigh Little Theater. The roses were so pretty and so was the radiant bride. Mark's sister, Natalie, and her children, and his aunt, Randi, were the guests. Edyta's son, Jacob, age 12, was the best man and ring bearer. Her daughter, Maia, age 8, was a flower girl along with Mark's niece. We celebrated Mark and Edyta finding each other, remembered their parents who could not be with us, they exchanged their vows and rings, and then to symbolize the birth of this new family, we had a sand pouring ceremony. The ceremony ended with a kiss and then we posed for photos in the beautiful garden surrounding us. I forgot to bring my camera so their photographer, Tina Loeback, sent me these photos for this post. Thanks, Tina!
