Michael and Courtney used an old barrel for their sign in book!
This pretty cake was baked by Blue Moon Bakery.
And I imagine they also made this "candy" cake for Michael who has an extreme sweet tooth.
As part of his elaborately planned proposal of marriage, he created this Mad Lib board with the candy bars that Courtney had to match up to get the message!
First in are Michael's parents, Mary and Conrad. Elizabeth Parker with The Matthews House was our director.
Then Courtney's stepmother, Barbara, was escorted in by Drew Jr., brother of the bride.
The guys and I enter from the breezeway
Waiting for the bridesmaids and the bride!
The bridesmaids are ready to make their entrance.
Our ring bearers, Bryson and Shea, walk down the aisle and are seated.
Courtney and her dad, Drew, take the long walk to the end of the aisle.
Drew transfers Courtney's hand into Michael's then carefully takes his seat without stepping on the bride's train!
Elizabeth's processional duties are complete. Great job, Elizabeth!
So the ceremony begins.
Our Maid of Honor, Jen, is filled with emotion and on the verge of tears, I think!
Until I saw these photos, I did not know that Michael was making all these funny faces behind me!
And really, they have never looked back.
They made their vows to each other. Michael got a little choked up but made it through.
Then the rings.
Courtney slides Michael's ring on his finger.
And then, Michael "went in for a kiss" only to be reprimanded by me! He did this several times!
They liked the Wine and Chocolate unity ceremony where they each take a sip of wine......
Then take a bite of chocolate.
Then the pronouncement of marriage!
I invited Michael to "go for it" and he did! Everyone cheered!
The presentation of the newlyweds to their guests amid applause!
And off they go into wedded bliss!
They made their way to the front of the house with the wedding party following.
I invited the guests to the breezeway for cocktails while the couple and wedding party reconvened for photos.
Hey, that was fabulous! The guests loved it!Michael and Courtney, congratulations!! What a great wedding for a couple who are so well matched. I wish you all the happiness in the world.
