March Marriage

Nothing maddening here! Happy couple!

Awesome wedding party!

Add some sisters, babies, grandma’s and we are all set!

Just The Two Of Us!

Each & every wedding shares similar things. A couple, a place to get married, a place to celebrate, family, friends, guests, music, food, dancing, wedding party, decor, on and on.

For some .. all they want is to get married to each other, with just each other!

So on a cold March morning I was honored and privileged to serve Nigel and Kedesha in their home, by officiating their ceremony.

It was after all as the song says ..’ just the two of us’!

 

Valentine’s Day 2017
