Ok, I admit it. I actually shed some tears of my own at this one. This is a marriage of an entire family. The bride and groom are in my age group, and for each of them, this is a second chance of happily ever after. Together, they bring 6 children into the marriage . It was very important to them to include the children as an intrigal part of the ceremony. All the children were included in the wedding party, and the center peice of the wedding was a giant unity candle lighting. Their eldest daughter, who is a member of NCSI, took leave from Germany to attend. The bride was given away by the groom's son. I can honestly say, that I've never had the pleasure of witnessing such a touching event. Adding to the emotional element, it was a Christmas wedding. They had gifts for all the guests, and decorated everything in beautiful Christmas decor. The band was also amazing. They talked the lead singer into singer opera, and he did. Everyone sat down to watch him sing. He had a total of 5 oncores. He sang in French, Italian, English, and Russian. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we did in taking them. As always, CC is appreciated and respected. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
