The processional was the title song from Juno, 'All I Want is You' by Barry Louis Polisar, that I just couldn't help but post on my Facebook page. It makes me smile everytime I hear it, which is good on a stressful day. It was played to perfection by Miles, a great musician and Camille's son. Here is a youtube link for it: http://www.youtube.com/
In the ceremony we told a little about how they met: 'We have a professor in their graduate school program to thank for their blossoming love; a professor that was so boring that Heidi and Eric sat in the back of the room and looked over cookbooks, planning the meals that they would enjoy together, that gave them the unexpected room to grow their friendship that before too long kindled into love.'
Thanks so much to Melissa Tuck, of Melissa Tuck Photography, who was our fabulous photographer for the day. She was very generous, a joy to work with, and got wonderful pictures. Check out her blog of the wedding, too, because it shows so many more of the charming and personal touches that Eric and Heidi had. Here it is: http://melissatuckblog.

They are both very conscious, intelligent loving people who are much loved by their family and friends. They also are concerned about the planet which is always lovely to see in a wedding.
Heidi wore her mother's wedding dress, refitted just a little to modernize it. It was perfect. Here is Eric telling her how beautiful she is.
They had a Celtic Handfasting Ritual as part of their wedding using a cord they wove themselves. In this ritual we bound their hands in marriage and literally 'tied the knot.'
What a great kiss. I often have to tell couples not to kiss too fast. No worries here. Then they recessed to 'Celebration' by Kool and The Gang.
Heidi's thank you hug was all I needed to make my day. Their wedding was a joy. And they went on their honeymoon to Iceland. Since they now live in Phoenix, I wondered if they were missing the cold and so getting a really good dose.
Their wedding party was in full array, the men natty each in their own way, the women charming in all these spring colors.
When they got back from their honeymoon I got this lovely note: 'Hi Robin!
