This the outdoor garden where most wedding ceremonies take place.
Daniel's Florist provided the floral arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres for the wedding.
Taylor Pittman is our DJ and helps me hook my wireless microphone into his system. Love working with Taylor!
After the wedding party has processed down the aisle, it is time for the bride and groom.
Melissa and Andy walked toward each other to the arch, then together they processed in to be joined in marriage.
The ceremony began with a warm welcome to all, a prayer, remembrance of loved ones passed, and a thank you to their parents.
One of the most touching parts of their ceremony was paying tribute to Melissa's 3 daughters, Mariela, Julianna, and Sophia, who were her attendants. Andy spoke some very moving words to his new stepdaughters that brought most of us to tears.
Next came the story of how they met and fell in love. It was a good one and most of our guests had never known the whole story.
What came next were what they love about each other and what they are looking forward to in marriage. Then they exchanged the vows they had written to each other by reading them from my book.
The exchange of rings was next.
It was time to mop Andy's face before the pronouncement and kiss! It was rather hot that day!
The happy couple!
