Lisa and Meredith Celebrate Their Love by Tying the Knot Officially!

Although Lisa and Meredith had a commitment ceremony pledging their hearts to each other several years ago, they wanted to officially get married. They chose to have their wedding in my wedding garden on the busy--and rainy--day of October 10th, 2015.
The garden was ready but I had not yet put out the cushions on the benches because of impending sprinkles. 
This sweet fairy overlooks my garden from the vantage point of the birdbath in which she stands. 
The umbrellas were in use as their family and guests gathered. 
Here come our brides! 
They brought their photographer, Rob Taylor, to capture the day in photographs.
The rain stopped and so we hurried into place and began the ceremony. 
Meredith and Lisa took the spiritual ceremony I sent them and personalized it to fit them.
We began with a warm welcome to all followed by a prayer. Then we recognized their children, Leah and Matthew, who stood up with them.
They said their vows in unison to each other--the same vows from their commitment ceremony.
The rings were exchanged........
And then a blessing for Lisa and Meredith.......
The pronouncement of marriage!
Sealed with a kiss! 
It is official! 
And they are so happy as I introduce them as a married couple to their guests.
Cheers and applause! 
Leah and Matthew are thrilled! 
Meredith and Lisa, congratulations. Thank you for the honor of joining you in marriage! I wish you all the best life can bring!
