Heather and Mike's wedding was special for another reason too. Heather's sister, Carrie, and my daughter, Andrea, worked together and that is how they came to know about me and hire me for their wedding officiant. I did not meet Heather and Mike face to face until months after they mailed me the contract and check.
North Carolina Classical Wedding Music, and her two fellow musicians arrived. Molly is in the center. They provided heavenly music for the ceremony while the DJ, a family member from Plymouth MA provided the music for the reception.

Corey escorts Julie in.
Angela enters with Bryan. She is one of the Maids of Honor.
And now Carrie, Heather's sister, enters with our best man, Kyle.
Time for our beautiful bride and proud papa.
And the ceremony began. Take a look at that huge fan rotating slowly above the guests. And, that nice carpet runner! That substantial runner is what I like to see at a wedding!
Here we are paying tribute to their wonderful parents.
Carrie is reading her sweet vows to Mike from my book as I follow along with my finger so she can look up and not lose her place.
Time for the big pronouncement of marriage. Someone else on the front row is taking a picture too!
The photo of the kiss was just too dark to salvage but as you can imagine, it was a good one. They had been practicing!
Whoa! I can't explain this photo but I sure do like it! Sorry Mike got cut off but Heather is grinning from ear to ear!
Doug and Mary, Heather's parents, recess out. They are so happy about this marriage! Carrie, you are next!
Mike's two moms, Sue and Kate, exit together. They were so touched by the ceremony!
I just dropped my stone into the vase! I had it in my pocket during the ceremony.
It was only slightly misting when we exited for photos on the terrace outside the pavilion. The lighting is perfect. Mike and Heather, it was a pleasure working with you and I am honored to have officiated your wonderful wedding. I am sure I will be hearing about you from Carrie! All the best to you both!
