Krystal and Soumitra's Wonderful Wedding at Brier Creek Country Club!

Krystal and Soumitra came to see me in June to officiate their wedding on August 7, 2010 at Brier Creek County Club. Krystal grew up in Massachusetts and Soumitra (AKA "Meech") grew up in North Carolina. They met in a on line forum in 2002 while Krystal was in college in Boston. They actually did  not meet in person until almost a year later when Meech traveled to Boston and when they did, the attraction and compatibility was Magic! So, now they both live in Apex and wanted to make their commitment to each other official. Their wedding day was a very pleasant temperature, more like the traditional June rather than the hot August weather we are accustomed to.

Kristie Taylor, catering and events manager for Brier Creek, was on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly. Jill with All the Right Grooves was our DJ for the ceremony and reception and did a fine job.  I thank Amy Turner of Your Still Life Photography for sending me these fabulous photos. My camera had an unfortunate technical malfunction and she bailed me out here for the blog. Both Amy and her husband, David, were shooting this wedding. North Raleigh Florists provided the beautiful flowers.
Krystal's parents, Silvano and Judith, escorted their lovely daughter down the aisle.
Here I believe I am sharing the story of their first kiss. Or maybe how Soumitra secretly conspired with Krystal's mother to get family heirloom diamonds and design a special engagement ring for Krystal.
This must be the part in the ceremony about Soumitra's carefully planned proposal at Duke Gardens and the duck that "helped" him stage the event!  
Then they said their vows to each other and exchanged rings and it was time for the sand ceremony.
They poured their individual colors of sand together into one container symbolizing their connection to each other.
I made the pronouncement of marriage and they shared their first kiss as husband and wife. I managed to step out of the way and was so happy to see that Amy got this photo of the couple kissing without me in it.
And, here they are, husband and wife at last! 
This photo is one of only a few taken with my camera after the wedding when I was able to delete some photos filling up the media card. Krystal and Meech, what a great couple you are! I know you are so happy and I wish you much joy!
