One of my very favorite wedding ceremony moments is witnessing the processional.
I love to watch grandparents enter slowly, arm in arm, and parents process proudly, with tearful joy.
I love seeing the wedding party take their places in casual reverence, and grooms walk with sober anticipation.
I love beholding the couple, if they enter side by side, and especially the bride when they haven’t done a First Look, for couples shine on their wedding day with the unfiltered light of their full hearts.
There are few things in life like these moments...few times when you enter a place knowing you will leave it forever changed, and where in that transformation you are witnessed by cherished family and dearest friends.
I adore my view from the front, and with each ceremony I officiate, I never forget the utter magic of these moments.
