Maha and Sidney Have a Wonderful Family Wedding at Home!

Maha called me on November 6th to see if I could marry her and Sidney on Wednesday November 11th, 2015. They had planned to marry at the courthouse but had just found out that was a holiday (Veterans Day) and the county offices were closed. We were both delighted that I was available to officiate for them and so we began planning the ceremony.
Originally their wedding was going to be just the two of them and their two witnesses. With the setting changed, the wedding began to mushroom into a more formal and well attended event! This is the great room of Sidney's home in Wakefield Plantation. The sunlight was streaming in.
 The sand ceremony was all set up for the wedding. 
 Maha's brother, Samir, has the honor of escorting our beautiful bride into the ceremony. 
The sun makes really interesting patterns in the room as Maha and Sidney turn and face each other for the ceremony.
Time to welcome everyone present. Sidney's parents, Ruth and Denny, drove up from Georgia to be with us. Sidney's sister, Angelia, and his two daughters, Holly and Haley were with us as well. Maha's two sons, Mohammed and Samer, and her sister, Noha, were present as well.
 They included the family unity sand ceremony and invited all members of their family to participate.

 Maha's sons pour.......
 Their sisters more.
The blended sand showing the unity of this new family.
 Then it is time for them to exchange their vows and the rings. 
 "By the authority vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife!"
 They are so happy for this day! 
 It is really real! 
 Presenting the newlyweds!
Maha and Sidney, thank you for finding me and allowing me to join you in marriage. I wish you love, peace and joy!
