Wedding at St. Mark's Chapel in Raleigh

My weekend of weddings began with the small intimate wedding of Marquis and Ginny the morning of July 5th. Marquis and Ginny grew up in Raleigh and met in high school. They were each other's true love. But, their lives went in different directions for many years. At some point they found each other again and decided it was time to get married and be together!

Although they live in Florida, they wanted to have their wedding in Raleigh where most of their family and old friends live. One of Ginny's sisters flew in from California for this wonderful reunion. St. Mark's Chapel in downtown Raleigh on the Mordecai House campus was the perfect place for their small wedding with about 50 guests. The beautiful wedding music was provided by a couple of my favorite musicians, Greg and Ray. One plays the violin and the other the viola. With a full house, Ginny was escorted in by her brother Camden who "handed her over" to Marquis and they stepped up onto the platform with me and the ceremony began. We had created a special ceremony for them via email which was dear to their hearts and enjoyed by all of their guests. We honored Marquis' parents, Henry and Mary, and lovingly remembered Ginny's parents who are deceased. After the sweet ceremony the couple and guests went to the home of Ginny's brother for the reception. They were so happy to be married to each other at last and it showed! My best wishes to you, Marquis and Ginny!
