Courtney + Brian: The Ceremony

The bride arriving at Corpus Christi Church...

There was plenty of negotiating to go down the aisle going on since there were 4 flower girls, 2 ring bearers and 3 junior bridesmaids in addition to the grown-up wedding party.

Photographer David M took this shot through the cool doors at the back of the Corpus Christi Church aisle. The officiant for the ceremony was Corpus Christi pastor Reverend Richard Bozelli.

Certainly the goosebump moments of the ceremony revolved around Courtney's careful selection of the music. The moms took their seats to Bridge Over Troubled Water played by the flute trio, the bridesmaids processed to Bella's Lullaby (also the flute trio) and Courtney and Brian's very talented friend Joey played the piano and sang The Luckiest for the bride's processional with her father. During the ceremony, Courtney's Aunt Nancy sang The Prayer and the recessional (also played by Joey) was Say A Little Prayer. It's so great to change it up a bit for the ceremony music.

The very cute black bridesmaids dresses are from Garnish Boutique in Mt. Washington. Bridesmaids bouquets were designed by Romance of Flowers.

Courtney's beautiful gown is a Priscilla of Boston from Betsy Robinson's Bridal Collection. The guys tuxedos are from the knowledgeable guys at Tuxedo House in Timonium.

The photo below was actually taken at the church across the street from The Walters, the historic Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church.We love that Courtney and Brian look so relaxed and having such a good time -- just as a wedding day should be.
