Bunn DJ Company was our DJ for the wedding. Here Stefan with the hotel is setting up the house system which Frank will operate.
After doing a sound check, I sat down to review the script.A Southern Soiree. The woman on the left was the caretaker for Leslie's mother and so happy for Leslie.
Rich and I processed in first.
Then Leslie's lovely daughter, Nia, took her walk down the aisle.
The ring bearer, Jonah, and the flower girl, Marin, entered next. So sweet!
Dylan proudly escorts his beautiful mother down the aisle.
The guests are standing in her honor.
And then a blessing for their children: Kelly and Quinn, Dylan and Nia.
And now for their wonderful love story.
They had each told me what they love about each other and so I am revealing that to them during the ceremony.
They chose to use the lyrics of a Bruce Springsteen song "If I Should Fall Behind" for their vows.
Rich read the first verse from my book.
Then Leslie the second verse. Then they read the chorus together.
It is time to put the rings on the fingers!
First I had to do a little "housekeeping" with my hankie!
Following a closing blessing, I pronounced them finally and forever, husband and wife.
The guests were invited to enjoy cocktail hour while the couple and their families were taking photos.
Cara Galati Powell (also a bride of mine) with f8 Photo Studio was our wonderful photographer. Here she is in action!
A hug together in celebration!
