Samantha and Luis Get Married in Kayelily's Garden!

Samantha and Luis recently relocated to the Raleigh area from California. They contacted me to see if I could officiate their wedding in my garden instead of getting married at the courthouse. They chose the date of Wednesday June 28th, 2017.
Their wedding day was beautiful! Comfortable temperatures and low humidity and some nice sunshine at 4:00 PM. Luis' father, Andrew escorted Samantha into the garden from the deck.
They wanted a more religious ceremony and I was happy to do that for them. Of course they got to preview the ceremony and make any changes they wanted. But they liked what I proposed.
A view from my upper deck. It was a small wedding with Luis' parents, Zan and Andrew, and Samantha's Aunt Melinda who received a blessing and thanks on behalf of the couple.
 They have two little boys, Riley and Landon, so I included a children's blessing for them. 
 Some words about marriage.......
Making their vows to each other.
We closed the garden gate so Landon could not escape! He was an active little boy just being himself and Grandpa was on duty! 
 The ring exchange.
 The moment they become husband and wife!
 A first kiss as husband and wife!
 It is done! 
Congratulations, Luis and Samantha! Welcome to North Carolina and your marriage! I wish you the best always! God bless you!
