We were all waiting for Ali’s bride, Amanda. It was a rainy Sunday afternoon. But that didn’t matter because we were all inside at the restaurant. Amanda arrived in style in a 1930’s Excalibur limosine.
Her maid of honor and all the bridesmaids were in stunning dresses as well.
The guests were all ready for her entrance on the second floor of the restaurant. The tables were arranged to accommodate the look they wanted and allow for people to mingle.
Amanda was ready to go with her father in arms.
She walked up the stairs to join her groom Ali for the ceremony. One of the readings was my favorite Dr. Seuss; “Oh the Places You’ll Go”. They exchanged their own vows where they shared some humorous bits about each other. We had a bit of a fun moment with signing the register and license. The area was too small to have a table. So Amanda signed with the register on Ali’s back. Ali signed the register on his best man‘s back. It was the ultimate depiction of the saying “I got your back!”.
With great applause I declared them married. They made their way downstairs where sparkling wine was served and the party began. Congrats Amanda and Ali!
