I did not meet Alex and Grace in person until their wedding day July 17th, 2015, when I arrived at Second Empire for their ceremony. Alex had made all the arrangement for me to officiate their wedding by email. We sent the ceremony script back and forth a few times by email until it was perfect for them.
These are intricate paper swans filled with candy and most likely are symbolic of sweetness and abundance.
Lucy, our violinist with Arioso Strings, is in place and warming up.
The Pine Room is all set up for the reception!
Yehong is proud to escort his beautiful daughter in in the American Wedding tradition.
Before the bride entered, our flower girl sprinkled some petals.
And now, Grace and Yehong!
George Street Photo and Video out of Chicago, to vacate the altar area. (My one request of photographers is to not get behind me during the ceremony and distract me, the couple and their guests but he had not asked me before the ceremony if I had any restrictions so he did not know.)
We had a blessing for their parents and then some words on love and marriage.
They exchanged their vows and rings.......
Grace made sure her wedding ring was all the way on and secure!
Now Alex's ring....
The marriage is declared!
A shy kiss!
And here they are--wife and husband at last!
