Last April Lori and Mike came to see me about officiating their wedding on October 23, 2010 at Brier Creek Country Club. They are a vivacious and fun couple and were intrigued with the concept of creating their own wedding ceremony. They booked me right away and with the tons of ceremony material I emailed them, they began putting together what they wanted me to say in their ceremony. In the meantime, they both answered 5 questions for me about their relationship and I melded their answers together for their "story" to include in the ceremony. They gave me lots of good material with some humor added in which I loved!
When it was time for the ceremony to begin, our honorary wedding director, Elly, a friend who teaches with Lori, cued in the parents and wedding party. Last but not least were our two flower girls. Thankfully, one was older and could lead the younger one down the aisle although they almost veered off!
It is time for the vows and the rings to be exchanged. Mike first.
And now the pronouncement.........
Mike really gave Lori a big smackaroo! I think they had been practicing!
Lori was saying how wonderful she thought her wedding ceremony went.
Before Marty and I dashed off to the next wedding, we got this shot of me with the newlyweds. I wish you all the best life has to offer, Lori and Mike!
Brier Creek Country Club: wonderful garden setting for a wedding. Love doing weddings here.
Greg Ramsey, DJ with Joe Bunn DJ Company, provided the ceremony music. Always enjoy working with Greg.
Diane McKinney was our photographer and it was good to see her again and work another wedding together. She brought her assistant Kristen. Thanks, gals!
Fresh Affairs always does a fantastic job on the florals! Thanks, Lynn.
