To back up with the camera a bit you see the sculptures that provided the gateway to the wedding.
Up front was the table with the Unity candle set up flanked by large pots of flowers by the Watered Garden.
How perfect in front of the water that was sprinkled with lily pads.
The view from the front.
Our handsome groomsmen enter the area where the guests were arriving to usher them in.SweetSaraBelle Weddings, our wedding director, played flower girl and sprinkled the petals down the aisle before the processional began.
Shane Snider and so we did not have to maneuver to keep Kyle from seeing Kate!
Kyle and I entered with his 6 groomsmen.
Now for the seating of grandparents and parents.
Catherine, grandmother of the bride, was escorted in by our best man, David.
Kyle's parents, Jimmy and Melissa.
Roseanne, mother of the bride, was escorted in by her son Michael then he joined the groomsmen.
The first bridesmaid in was Rachel who just happened to be with Kate the day she met Kyle!
These dresses are so pretty and becoming to the young ladies.
Sarah helps Michaela and Tristan start down the aisle!
Finally our beautiful bride enters with her father, Mark. The emotion of the moment is getting to Kate!
Mark transfers Kate's hands into Kyle's and carefully makes his way around the dress to his seat!
After a warm welcome to everyone and remembering those who could not be with us, I spoke to the parents.
A beautiful tribute to their parents whose marriages have stood the test of time!
Kate is a very focused young woman and set her sights on Kyle from day one and although Kyle held her back so they could go slower, he finally capitulated after two years! We had some really good laughs!
They love traveling, cheering for the Wolfpack, being foodies and beer snobs, and caring for their two canine kids, Ella and Charlie.
Talking about Kyle's surprise proposal during a trip to the Dominican Republic in 2013!
Kyle reads his vows to Kate from my book.......
And Kate does the same.......
Then the rings......
And their Unity Candle is lit! And it was still burning after the ceremony! A good sign!
The closing blessing......
The presentation of the newlyweds!Veritas Digital Photography videoed the wedding and it was catered by The Iris Restaurant in the Museum. I thank Morgan Greer with the museum for referring Kate and Kyle to me along with Heather, a former bride. It was an incredible wedding!
