This weekend, despite the rain storms, I had the pleasure of performing two outdoor ceremonies…
Friday night I had the prvilege of officiating over a vow renewal of a darling couple who celebrated their 5th anniversary with their family and friends at the Felt Mansion in Laketown.
It is a gorgeous building with fantastic grounds!! The couple chose to be married inside the new coy pond which has a cement walkway out to a center circle with a fountain in the middle it was like walking on water!
The “bride”, Tina, had her heart set on having the ceremony outside and even though it was raining when I arrived, the clouds cleared and the rain stopped just long enough for us to get through the entire cermony and get everyone inside before it let loose with a down pour that lasted the night! It was perfect timing and a perfect ceremony.
Paul and Tina were a fabulous couple that put enourmous thought into every part of their ceremony… one element they chose to incorporate was a Mother’s Rose Presentation but instead of roses they selected a different flower for each Mother that represented a value they felt that each one had taught them…you can see how happy and surprised the Mom’s were.
That’s just one of the ways in which Paul and Tina made their ceremony personal and unique. It was a very special treat for me to work with them!!
Saturday I was honored to officiate at a commitment ceremony for Ted and Lynnette at Douglas Beach. Despite the clouds that hovered above all day and the winds that kicked up just as we got there they also got the rain free ceremony that they we dreaming of!
Lynnette’s two sisters were the only witness to this itimate and private beach ceremony that culminated with a sand blending ceremony using the sand at their feet. Now they have a little jar of sand from the exact spot they stood on when they pledged their love for each other – it was VERY romantic!!
Michelle from V.S. Flowers did a beautiful job on their flowers – thanks, again Michelle!!
Congratulations to Tina & Paul and Lynnette and Ted – two wonderful couples! Wishing you all a lifetime of happiness together!!
