Variety is the Spice of Life!

What an amazing few weeks it's been -- a number of wonderful weddings, each one different!  I'll blog about one at a time, so that each one gets the attention it deserves!

One of the most unusual ceremonies in my 34 years of experience was last weekend.  Karli and Zack were married in a beautiful tropical garden on a perfect fall day.  That's where anything "typical" ends -- because their ceremony was absolutely one-of-a-kind!

They're looking at a butterfly that flew between them as their ceremony started! 

I worked with them for several months on making their ceremony reflect their off-the-wall sense of humor, along with their love of zombies.  They also wrote their own vows, which included both traditional and hysterically funny wording.  Their guests were laughing one minute, and crying the next!

The icing on the cake was when, at the end of their ceremony, I gave them a plastic wrestling belt that they had asked I hide in my book -- and as they walked back down the aisle, they held it up, to the cheers of their guests!

Karli & Zack, it was so much fun to work with you, making your ceremony so unique -- may your laughter continue throughout your life together!

We pulled off the belt surprise!
