The courtyard is all set up and ready as the shadows get longer and longer.
Very pretty aisle treatment by Teacup Floral who also did the bouquets and boutonnieres.
In the adjoining conference room the bridesmaids are peeking through the door to see the First Look!
This conference room always looks this way before a wedding. It is where the bridal party hangs out before the ceremony.
This is the bride's gorgeous bouquet by Teacup Floral.
There go Amanda and Dan!
Now the whole wedding party traipses across the lush green grass to the green for some striking photos.
Back in the courtyard, Florian Music has begun playing prelude music as the guests are being seated.
And now all the bridesmaids are in position--time for the bride!
Amanda was escorted in by her parents, David and Jane.
Her father did get a bit teary-eyed during the presentation of the bride though!
And so the ceremony began with welcoming words and a sweet "faith-neutral" prayer.
They exchanged their vows.
Then it was time to exchange their rings.
"With this ring, I marry you and pledge my heart to you."
The pronouncement of marriage......
And then the kiss......
and more kissing......
And here they are: The new Mr. and Mrs.!
Just the beginning of their new married life!
