A Unique Wedding at Duke Gardens!

Amrika and Jeremy were both born in Trinidad and wanted a wedding ceremony American style but in Trinidad dress which is so beautiful and colorful! We had fun getting the ceremony just right and on Saturday morning August 16th 2008 I arrived at the pergola of Duke Garden to officiate for them.

It was overcast that morning and the inside of the pergola was quite dark--not good for photographs for sure! Their photographer Dilip Barman had to get creative. They were videoing the ceremony too. So we decided to do the ceremony on the steps, as you can see, out in the sunlight, with the guests flanking the sides of the steps. The cameraman first had me begin the ceremony facing the camera with my back to the couple, then I turned around and spoke to them. For the pronouncement I moved up the steps behind them so the camera would have a better view of the couple and their kiss!

Amrika's parents and family were able to be with us for the wedding but regrettably, Jeremy's parents were in Trinidad. Amrika and Jeremy are so much fun to be with--Jeremy loves to clown around! It was a great wedding celebration! All the best to you, Amrika and Jeremy!
