tia+walter: the ceremony

The forecast was rain, however, we all held our breath, hoping  the weather person was wrong. Twenty minutes before the ceremony was to begin, the sky opened up and released a week’s full of rain. Ms. Jesse, being the professional coordinator that she is, didn’t miss a beat. Plan B was in full effect! The staff at The Emerald Grande,  as well as the rest of us made the necessary adjustments, and God made His entrance…a magical blessing ensued. This was one of the loveliest occasions that I have ever attended! Congratulations  Walter and Tia! You two are definitely special. I knew it  from the first day we met and it was reinforced during the engagement session..thank you for allowing me to be a part of this day and the entire process..Special thanks to the entire staff at The Emerald Grande #EGWeddings
Here are a few previews of a glorious day

Rutorrestt and Jill

13 years. They celebrate 13 years today. 13 years of matrimony. Rutorrestt (pronounced “rue-tore-rest”) and Jill have been happily married for over a decade.  13 years. They were married at the Justice of the Peace. Many do that.  She loves him and he loves her. 13 years. They have a beautiful family. Three beautiful children. Been through the ups and downs that families go through. The one thing  Jill wanted was for her father to walk her down the aisle. A daughter wanting her father to take her to the man God has set a side for her, giving his blessing on the man that would replace him as her covering. 13 years. Jill got her prayers answered. Her husband,who loves her so dearly, planned this ceremony on their 13th wedding anniversary, and surprised Jill. Her daddy would walk her to him, give his blessing, and they would complete the cycle. Giving his daughter in Holy matrimony, in a renewing of wedding vows. She had no idea it was planned to this extent. We men can learn a lot from Rutorrestt. I did. Talk is cheap. It’s never too late.  13 years. 13 is not so unlucky after all…
