I love "reunion weddings!" That is what I call weddings of couples who knew each other as kids, went their separate ways and then reunited many years later usually at a high school reunion! They are the sweetest weddings. It is like true love triumphed! Sonya and Matthew's wedding is a reunion wedding.
They chose Barclay Villa for their sweet wedding on December 17, 2016.
The villa is all decked out for the holidays.Ashley Cakes and got a photo of her just as she finished with the beautiful cake she made for Sonya and Matthew.
And here it is--stunning!
Traditional poinsettias on the steps...The florals were furnished by Dragonfly Florists.
All Around Raleigh DJ, one of my very favorites to work with. He is waiting for Jennifer of Jennifer V Events to give him the signal to start the music. Brandon Hume of Southern Love Studios was our photographer.
Here we go!
Everyone was seated and the couple faced each other holding hands.
Then we recognized their children who are all grown up.
They made their promises of marriage to each other and then Matthew placed the ring on her finger.
Then Sonya placed the ring on Matthew's hand and said her promises to him line by line after me.
After a closing blessing for them, I placed my hand on theirs and made the pronouncement of marriage.
A wonderful kiss!
It was my privilege and my delight to present to the guests the newlyweds, together at last!
They were such a happy couple. I loved joining them in marriage.
