Then at the end of the vista from the pergola is the beautiful fish pool with the overlook above it.
Time to start the ceremony. Ion and I take our places in front.
Our wonderful violinist, Udeshi Hargett!
Melissa and her father, Pat, begin their walk through the gorgeous foliage.
Down the steps...
"Who blesses and supports Melissa as she comes to join in marriage with Ion?"
Julian Ribinik, is getting so many good photos! I have seen them posted on Facebook and he has generously offered them to me. The photos on this blog are taken by my husband Dave who was being my "roadie" that day.
From the left is Ion's mother, Cynthia, Melissa's parents, Diane and Pat.
Following the welcome was a blessing of the parents and remembering those loved ones not with us.
After a few words on how much Ion and Melissa are attuned with each other, it is time for the vows.
Ion read the vows he had written for Melissa from my book, then Melissa read hers to Ion.
The exchange of rings "With this ring, I marry you and pledge my heart to you."
A closing blessing before the pronouncement!
Congratulations, Melissa and Ion!! Thank you for choosing me to join you in matrimony! I wish you all the best life can bring your way!
