Thomas and his groomsmen and I are gathered on the other side of the ballroom door from where we will enter once Thomas' father escorts Thomas' mother in and joins us.
The parents, bridesmaids and sweet little flower girls entered from the reception area through this incredibly beautiful arch created by Kelly Odom Flowers.
Once we were all in place, it was time for our bride and her father to enter.
Amber looked like a princess!
I greeted all the guests on behalf of our couple then we had a short prayer.
Then I got to tell the story of how they met and fell in love. They were matched up on line and from the first meeting they were smitten with each other. One thing led to another and in less than a year, Thomas proposed. Of course Amber said yes and they started planning this wedding.
They exchanged their vows.
Then their rings.
(My dear husband, Dave, takes photos of weddings for me to post on this blog. He got a bit artistic here and played with the zoom on the camera and the backlighting.)
It was time for a closing blessing and the pronouncement of marriage!
The moment they become husband and wife!
I think they really enjoyed this kiss!
And away they go!
The staff slid back the partitions and here is that beautiful archway!
