Marty and I arrived and entered the tent on the property that had been transformed for the ceremony. Draping cordoned off the ceremony area and the English Garden florists had been there and set up the altar area with greenery and candelabras.
Our musicians from Arioso Strings arrived and began warming up.The Extraordinaires were also setting up and warming up for the reception following the ceremony and cocktails. They provided me with a lavaliere microphone for the ceremony because there was no really suitable place for me to place my sound system.
The Square Rabbit was the caterer and also provided the small cake for the bride and groom to cut and the luscious cupcakes for the guests to eat!
There were even pretty personalized teal paper towels in the restrooms!
Above the guest book table was this gorgeous monogram of the couple!
Okay, it is time to get lined up, guys!
Our pretty maidens all in a row out on the porch!
John and I and the groomsmen are waiting for Curt to return and the musicians to start new music.
Lisa, our director, then cued in the bridesmaids, flower girl and ring bearer.
Where's the bride???
Here she comes! She and her father were just beaming!Allen Watson, was positioned at the corner to get shots of each member of the wedding party as they entered.
Lizzie's dress was stunning. It was perfect for her!
And so we began.
We included a nice prayer then paid tribute to their parents.
The dating began their junior year and really, they have never looked back.
John, this is what Lizzie told me she loves about you and why she wants to marry you.
Lizzie, John told me how much he loves you and looks forward to building a life together.
They exchanged their vows and then exchanged rings.
By the power vested in me...........
Good kiss, John, and you were careful not to dislodge Lizzie's veil!!
The poignant "after-kiss" moment I just love to see as reality is sinking in!
Yep, a few tears rolled down Lizzie's cheek and I quickly handed her a hankie I carry just for that!
Ladies and Gentlemen......the newlyweds!
