R. Gerhardt speaks of relationship in "Thought in A Garden."
A garden is a special place, a place where people have brought beautiful living plants, here to establish them, to nurture and care for them, that they may forever surround us with beauty and into this place where we stand, you have brought something beautiful -- the relationship that is becoming your marriage.
From the first look throughout the evening, it was a joy to just gaze their way and to smile.
The wedding party gathered and were ready for the ceremony. (Gaia and Matt made it easy for their attendants and encouraged them to wear something each would like.)
Then, it was time for the ceremony!
It was the first time I've officiated at the Arborteum when a tent was set up on the patio. It was truly elegant.
Emily presented the first reading: The Key to Love.
And Adrian, Gaia's brother, presented the second. Both did a wonderful job!
The happy couple is now married!!
The hall was beautifully set with long tables end to end. The arrangement made good use of the space and created that "family style" feeling people enjoy.
It also made it very convenient to "clink" glasses after the toasts.
I love cake ... and this was a beauty.
Then to the first dance. It was a warm summer night and truly one of the most romantic evenings.
Soon everyone was joining in the fun!!!
What I loved most about the evening was that I felt like family. Everyone was so friendly and gracious. This is a quality of the couple and of their families and friends.
And I was delighted they were happy with their ceremony. They sent me a thank you along with these photos.
