The English Garden and the centerpieces, bouquets and ceremony arch are so pretty.
Sugarland created this unusual cake to the specifications of Allison and Nick.
Our harpist, Gina Bombola, was tuning up under her tent. Direct sunlight can affect the strings.
Matt, our DJ from Spin, has his mobile system all set up to mic me for the ceremony.
The main characters!
Those loved ones who are no longer with us physically but remain in our hearts!
Chris Wheaton with Heartstone Films is set to video the ceremony. Looking forward to seeing the video!
Nicole with Erin McLean Events and her assistant, Lilly, get the processional of grandparents, parents and Nick and me lined up across from the ceremony area so we don't have to walk so far.
Grandparents are in--now for the parents!
The groomsmen make the long walk to the ceremony area.
Then the bridesmaids......
We are all now waiting for the bride. I asked the guests not to stand yet, so Nick can see Allison approach!
And here they come!
The guests are standing in honor of the bride as she and her dad turn the corner.
Hugs all around then the parents are seated.
Then the story of how Allison and Nick met, fell in love and got to this day.
Then they got to hear what the other told me they loved about them and what they are looking forward to in marriage. Then they made their vows to each other by reading them from my book.
The exchange of rings was next followed by a closing blessing.
