And so they entered down the aisle.
You can see my right hand beckoning newcomers to come on in and take a seat!
And so the ceremony began with welcoming words, a prayer, and recognition of special guests.
Then I invited Shawn's daughters, Emani and Destinee, to join us for a children's blessing.
Their mother has passed on and so on this day, Dynasty became their mother officially. A group hug!
Now to pour the sand.
Dynasty and Shawn blend their sand on top of the girls' combined sand signifying family unity.
A few words on love and marriage then I invited them to say their personal vows to each other.
And now for the exchange of rings!
I placed my hands on theirs and made the pronouncement of marriage.
Then I invited Shaqwan to kiss the bride!
And he surely did!
That sweet after-kiss moment!
I introduced the newlywed couple to their guests amongst the cheering and applause!
