Thank you to Chelsey Morrison of Gather Together Events and wedding planning for bringing Fay and John into my life. It was a joy to marry them. And to work with Chelsey again. She's really really good at what she does! And it's always with a smile.
When I first met with John and Fay last January they were just beginning to bring their vision for their September wedding into focus. All they knew was that they wanted to marry at the pond on John's uncle's property where they spent so much time fishing and getting to know each other so well. I pictured a truly rustic setting when they described it. I was amazed when I saw the actual pond at their rehearsal. It's gorgeous. Here's another view of the pond and the ceremony. Luckily I has a microphone so the guests didn't miss a word of the ceremony.
I was go grateful for that mantle. No one fell into the water. I consider that a coup in itself.
The dock was just the right size for everyone. A special Thank You to Katherine Miles Jones of Katherine Miles Jones Photography, our intrepid photographer, for her amazing photography. It wasn't an easy wedding to photograph at all!
John and Fay were so cute from the very beginning, beaming their joy and, yes, there were a few tears, too. I regress to show you Fay walking down the aisle and John watching Fay walk down the aisle.
On this day they only had eyes for each other. And that's as it should be. And they started out as friends who became best friends. That's as it should be, too.
I wish them all the joy in the world!
