When everyone had arrived and the pre-ceremony photos were taken, we began the ceremony. Their ceremony was the "sweet and simple" style ceremony. After words of welcome to their guests, I explained the ring-warming ceremony and started the box with the rings circulating.
We included a brief history of the beginning of their relationship and what attracted them to each other.
Their friendship blossomed into love and they crafted a life together for the next 4 years.
They had each written their own vows to each other and read them from my book to each other.
Derek went first and surprised himself by getting a little choked up. Then Rachel read her vows to Derek.
They joined left hands for the ring exchange.
Derek placed the ring on Rachel's hand while repeating a few lines after me. Then Rachel did the same.
A closing blessing then the pronouncement of marriage and invitation to kiss!
What a joyful moment!
That is a drone!
Our photographer, Chris Groch, also does drone photography. This is getting quite popular too.
Chris launches the drone while I got all the guests to gather together for a group photo by the drone!
Here it comes! (Sounds like a swarm of bees!)
We all waved to the drone!
Safely back on the ground!
