It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day in Brunswick at Mapleside Farms yesterday - bright blue sky, sunny and 74 degrees. A perfect day for a perfect couple - Chris and Angie. The couple chose not to have a rehearsal because there was only her daughter and a ring bearer/flower girl in the wedding party. However, as the weeks went by after our initial meeting, they added a Unity Rose ceremony and a reading. The rose ceremony involves the mothers. I got to the wedding early to have a mini-rehearsal with them to make sure that everyone knew exactly what they needed to do to be comfortable. Although it was a challenge for the nervous groom to get all of these people together at the same time, after having this impromptu rehearsal, the ceremony came off flawlessly.
Chris got teary-eyed when he saw his beautiful bride. Angie was as calm as could be and looked stunning in a beaded, form-fitting gown. It was quite windy and her veil was flying all over which just added to the wonderful spontaneity of the moment.
The mothers walked in with the roses and presented them to their children to exchange as a symbol of love and commitment. to each other.
Angie’s 18 yr. old daughter, Hayley, had the honor of holding her mother’s bouquet and the rings. She looked quite lovely in a pale pink gown and beamed throughout the ceremony.
These two couldn’t be more in love and it showed. Wishing this very special couple a lifetime of love and happiness.
