family unity sand ceremony with sand for the bride and groom and the four children.
Second Empire is a bright and airy space for the reception. The pastry chef there bakes beautiful wedding cakes but they keep them refrigerated until it is time for the reception so I don't have a photo to show you.
Arioso Strings provided the music for the ceremony. Ed and I work together a lot. Sometimes he is solo like today and other times he is one of a guitar and violin duo. It is a joy working with the musicians that Mary Page Block, the superbly organized owner of Arioso Strings, provides for weddings.They are always on time, organized, know the music and their musical ability is unsurpassed. I can always count on them.
The children are all ready and bursting with excitement about the wedding and their new family status! They cannot wait to get started on the ceremony.
The couple's friend, Gloria, was the perfect director for the wedding. She was very organized and had us all lined up and ready to walk in on cue. Thanks, Gloria! Their photographer was Tonya Mae Photography and the flowers were furnished by The Flower Cupboard.
"Now today, we witness the marriage of not only two individuals, but also that of a family who has been so fortunate to find one another, to enjoy one another and to love one another, now and always."
