Jess Dilday was our DJ and she was all set up. She plugged my microphone into her system and we did a sound check.
This yummy looking caramel cake was made by Yellow Bird Baking and topped with characters representing our two grooms.
Southern Harvest was our director and caterer. Southern Harvest is part of the Farmers Table Restaurant Group dedicated to bringing delicious healthy local food to the table at their restaurants one of which is The Q Shack.
Our guests were ready so we began.
Antonio and his groomsmen and I entered then Brian's groomsmen ushered in the ladies.
Antonio's Best man is his friend Adam and his groomsman is his friend Matt.
After escorting his mother, Mary Grace, down the aisle to her seat, Brian joined Antonio up front.
We began with a welcome to all and how important each person was to Brian and Antonio. Then at their request I asked them to put away their cameras and cell phones and truly be present with them at the ceremony.
Before their vows, they each had sent me special words they wanted to say to each other which I kept secret. They read them from my book then made their vows to each other.
So touching and with a bit of humor too!
Another mopping of his face. Brian and I were not dry either!
Brian places the ring on Antonio's finger as he repeats the words after me.
Then Antonio places the ring on Brian's finger.
At last the pronouncement of marriage. I can't tell you how happy I am that everyone can marry now!
I told Antonio and Brian they had to kiss again and to make it longer!
And so they did and we got the picture!!
Whew, time to cool off, relax, take some photos and then celebrate!Rob Bradley, for a photo of the three of us for this blog! I think we were all so glad we got through the ceremony without anyone getting heat exhaustion. I am sure those jackets came off soon after I left. Brian and Antonio, congratulations from the bottom of my heart. You two are great together and I am so happy you found each other! I wish you all the best!
