Ryan And Christy Celebrate Their Wedding Ceremony at the Sanctuary at Admiral

Thank you for making our night so special and memorable. We were tremendously pleased with the ceremony ... and will always look back on our ceremony with fondness.

We had a wonderful time and are so grateful that you could share the night with

Thank you for your time and dedication
to our ceremony. We feel fortunate to have met you! ~Christy & Ryan

Guests traveled from across the country to gather and celebrate the wedding of two people who are deeply in love.

The venue is truly beautiful: The Admiral at Sanctuary is a designated Historical Landmark. Built in 1929 as a church, it served that purpose for decades. When the congregation merged with another church and closed its doors, it was purchased by Dehli Bennett, the current owner. The building itself is built for celebration and perfect for weddings.

Christy and Ryan wanted a meaningful ceremony that balanced humor with the seriousness of their commitment, as well as acknowledging the importance of Ryan's two daughters in their lives.

Tables were beautifully set and FOODZ Catering offered a tasty buffet dinner.

The room was abuzz with laughter and joy and people learning about each other and everyone sharing their delight about Ryan and Christy's good fortune to have found one another.

It is always good to hear back from the couple about other wedding providers. Here are just some of Christy and Ryan's reflections:

Lea Czyzewski of Florarama Modern

Design was terrific to work with and I thought the flowers were beautiful.

Sharon’s Catering and Cakes. Wasn’t the cake delicious!?!? The best wedding cake we have ever tasted!

And thanks to I Heart Wedd for these images. Jose did well in capturing the essence of the night.

We wish Ryan and Christy the best in their married life!!!!

Kevin and Diane Exchange Their Marriage Vows at The Canal

Music is very important to Diane and Kevin. They wanted live performers for their ceremony and invited Laura Roundy and her fellow violinist to play several duets as part of the ceremony.

Kevin's father, Pat, has a deep, rich voice. He has sung at each of his children's weddings. It was very important for Kevin to have his father sing at his wedding as well. The experience meant a lot to Kevin!

Family is very important to the couple. Both the elders and the youngsters had a place in their wedding ceremony.

The couple decided on a candle ceremony and asked six family members to light one candle each, symbolizing the principles Kevin and Diane wanted their marriage to rest upon: unity, self-determination, mutual responsibility, connection, purpose and creativity.

Then, Diane and Kevin lit the last candle to signify their faith: a faith in themselves and their relationship, a faith that brought them to wed and will see them through all that is to come.
Thanks to Kelly and Robert of Gash Photography.
