The wedding started right on time as Nicole's father and Will escorted her down the aisle to Tim. We began with a welcome and thanks to all then an opening prayer. We paid tribute to Nicole's parents who were with us and remembered Tim's parents in Dalton who could not travel to be with us. We recognized Will and how important he is to his mother and Tim. They gave him a handsome family medallion as a memento of the occasion. Nicole and Tim exchanged vows and rings then we had a family unity candle ceremony where the couple and Will lit their own candles from a source candle then together lit a Family Unity Candle. Then I made the happy pronouncement and invited Tim and Nicole to share their first kiss as husband and wife.
It was a fine wedding and I received lots of compliments on the ceremony from the guests. We took some photos then I got the license signed by the two witnesses. Marty and I returned to Raleigh shortly after that to meet my husband, Dave, and all go to dinner and to the Master Chorale Concert together. What a nice day and evening! Congratulations, Tim, Nicole and Will!
