Fall is in the Air!

How wonderful it is when the season changes, and things get a little cooler here in Central Florida!  Outdoor weddings in the summertime are still wonderful, but also very challenging because of the heat.  Once October rolls around and things start to cool down, having a ceremony outdoors becomes a real pleasure!

Last weekend, at the beautiful Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, it was a pleasure and honor to officiate at the wedding of Rich and Andrea.  They live in Philadelphia, but came to Florida for their wedding because her parents live in the area.  Rich had found me online, and booked my services after we had spoken on the phone and established a great rapport.  He, Andrea and I worked together via phone and email on a ceremony that was absolutely beautiful and heartfelt, and reflected what they wanted to say to their guests and each other on their special day.  

Their wedding day had perfect weather -- sunny and breezy, with the temperature just right!  After making sure everything was in place (thanks to wonderful coordinators, Tammy & Elisa), and with the music of the classical guitarist adding a wonderfully romantic touch, their ceremony proceeded flawlessly.  The genuine love they have for each other showed in their radiant faces, and the joy as they shared their first married kiss was shared by all their guests. 

Congratulations, Rich and Andrea -- may you share a lifetime of great weather, 
love, laughter and good health together!
