Mandy and Julian's WEDDING day of March 18th, 2017 began with rain and on the chilly side. But, by 4:00 it was sunny and dry. BARCLAY VILLA looked beautiful and pristine.
The gazebo was all hung with lovely florals by VICTORIAN SEASONS.
Turn around and see the castle behind us with the Juliet balcony. The skies were clear!

SUGAR EUPHORIA baked a beautiful wedding cake for Mandy and Julian.
They honored Mandy's Aunt Karen by dedicating the cake to her! Sweet!

The guests were arriving and the sun was going behind the castle to cast us in shade for the ceremony. Perfect.
Eric with STYLUS was our DJ. Thank you, Eric, for the microphone and the perfect sound!
Mandy and her father make their entrance assisted by Kathy and her assistant.
And down the aisle they go!
And so the ceremony began with a warm welcome to all the guests who came from near and far.
Then we paid tribute to their parents and Mandy's stepparents.
Then Julian heard what Mandy loves about him and why she wants to marry him. He loved it.
While their hands were bound in love, they said their vows to each other.
Julian placed the ring on Mandy's finger. The rings symbolically replaced the handfasting cord.
Mandy slid the ring on Julian's finger with some difficulty but she finally got it all the way on!
Their friend, Jan, presented the Apache Wedding Blessing to close the ceremony.
I pronounced them husband and wife!
That "after-kiss" moment of realization!
