Liza + Lou

Liza and Lou's wedding ceremony on Saturday was touching and beautiful.  Lou's uncle, Father Zammitt, officiated the service with personal touches that only a close family member can offer.
The flowers from Kim at My Flower Box were beautiful and accented the burgundy bridesmaids dresses perfectly.

For this wedding, we helped with only the wedding ceremony and then sent everyone on their way to the reception.  With such a large bridal party and a priest who is from another state, Liza's mother felt it was necessary to have someone to help keep things in order.  We worked together to organize the ceremony and make sure everyone knew where they were supposed to be and when.

As I sat in the back of the church during the ceremony I was able to reflect and what an amazing job it is that we do.  There is a very special moment right before the ceremony begins, it's one of my favorite moments during the wedding day.  That moment happens when we're standing in the back of the church with the bride and her dad, just after the maid of honor has started her walk down the aisle.  We're waiting for the music to change and preparing the bride for her walk down the aisle to join her groom.  I love that moment because it's always different.  The bride runs through a range of emotions and they're always so clearly shown on her face.

Congratulations Liza and Lou!
