Beautiful old restored home in downtown Raleigh as the sun is setting.
I bet this house has hosted more weddings than we can even imagine!
The ceremony was in the back parlor with the guests facing this fireplace.Cinda's Creative Cakes. The flowers for the wedding were furnished by Fallon's Flowers and Posh Nosh was the caterer. Darren Hunnicutt was our DJ.
Earl is with us now and Joe is on his way down the aisle with Phyllis.
We await the lovely bridesmaids!
Heather has entered and now Diana, Dawn........and Emily!
Flower girl and ring bearer are on their way!
And here they come!
Is Jamie a happy bride or what!! Kaila straightens her train.
And so now we begin the ceremony of getting them married!
Jamie was so excited that she was pumping Quinton's hands up and down with joy!
After the Parents' Blessing and Community Blessing, I invited all but the best man and maid of honor to be seated for the remainder of the ceremony. They asked their friend Mary to read "Sonnet XVII" by Pablo Neruda.
I told their story and now they get to hear what each one told me they love about each other.
They read the vows they had written secretly to each other from my book.
Time for the exchange of rings. Jamie goes first.Then Quinton.
The pronouncement is the legal statement that joins them in matrimony!
We know what follows next!
The "after-kiss" moment!
The music started before I introduced them but not a problem!
A milestone moment, an unforgettable milestone event in their lives!
Out to the front porch for a few photos.
I said goodbye to them as I left for another engagement.
"I'll let you know when I get your wedding up on my blog!"
Jamie and Quinton, although we were rushed, I really enjoyed working with you and getting to know you and your families. Your wedding was fabulous and I think everyone enjoyed it. I wish you all the happiness and contentment in the world!
