Rosalie and Ron Wed at Highgrove Estates!

Rosalie and Ron have been around the block before so they knew what they wanted for their wedding on July 1st, 2016 at Highgrove Estates. It was great to work with them and create a wedding that truly reflected their love and respect for each other.   Their wedding day turned out to  quite beautiful.
Here I am going over the processional cues with the musicians from Florian Music. Always a pleasure to work with them. They are professionals--always on time and always on key!!
The guests are invited to sign in here and take a bottle of bubbles for the recessional. 
The Garden Ballroom was ready. The florals were by Teacup Florals
This pretty cake was baked by Stick Boy Bakery. You can see the red and white theme here. 
Angela, our Highgrove Estates director, and staff member prepare drinks. 
The guests are signing in then taking their seats because it is almost time to begin. 
Rosalie's mother is confined to a wheelchair so the best place for her to watch the ceremony is up on the terrace. She and Rosalie's father take their seats for the ceremony. Not sure who the others are who joined them but probably close family members.
Ron and I make our walk to the ceremony site. 
Once we are in place, the Maid of Honor, Carla, entered and joined the Best Man, Steve, at the top of the steps and took their places.
Rosalie began her trek down the aisle solo.......Our wedding photographers were Jeff and Christina with Little White Dress Photography.
She blew a kiss to her parents as she passed by them........
Ron met her at the top of the steps and they came together to be married. Wonderful symbolism! 
Their wedding ceremony began with a welcome and a prayer and a traditional wedding ceremony structure but with non-traditional content.
Theirs was a very romantic love story and I loved telling it. They met while both working for an animal rescue shelter. They both are very dedicated to the well-being of animals.
Their relationship evolved slowly over time creating a strong friendship that eventually blossomed into love. 
There were definitely some amusing adventures together and we had some good laughs with them! 
Not sure what I am saying here but Rosalie couldn't help but laugh! 
Their secret paragraphs were really heartfelt and tearful then they made their vows to each other. 
The exchange rings came next. 
A friend came forth with the memory box into which they placed unshared loveletters to each other that they will open and read on their first anniversary.
The moment their marriage becomes legal: The pronouncement.

Rosalie and Ron--an amazing wedding! It was really fun and truly a reflection of the two of you. I wish you the best of everything!
