I find it really fun to do double header weddings. This is when I perform back-to-back ceremonies at a ceremony location. Last weekend, I married two sets of couples at Stanley Park in Perth, Ontario.
I get a thrill when I perform double header weddings. Given the randomness of booking brides and grooms ceremonies, it occurs surprisingly often enough. Places where this has happened are Museum of History, Strathmere Inn, Lago Restaurant and at Museum of Nature on New Year’s Eve.
Last weekend, a double header wedding capped my seven wedding weekend. Both ceremonies were held outdoors in Stanley Park in Perth, Ontario. Ginny and Byron went on to a reception at the Best Western while Tanya and Kyle partied across the street at Codes Mill.
Ginny was radiant in her platinum hair making her look Gwen Stefani-ish. Byron was just over the moon with joy in marrying her.
Their wedding was full of fun. I started with the famous quote from the movie Princess Bride, in full accent; Mawwage…. It followed with a reading from Calvin and Hobbes and another quote from the movie – which I acted out. Even their vows were humorous.
After the wedding they went for pictures and the reception. I loved their Lego cake!
A few minutes later, I was present for Tanya and Kyle.
Their wedding was more traditional. It was very touching to have Tanya’s grandmother, Betty, act as Flower Girl and give the blessing.
The end result was the same, a happily married couple.
I received this email from Ginny and Byron two days later that brought tears to my eyes:
