So begins a magical new chapter in the life of Katherine and William. Together for ten years already, both a little hesitant about getting married again, this dynamic duo talked about it, supported each others' concerns and fears, and decided to give marriage another chance.
This is where I come in. Katherine called me to perform her wedding ceremony to her fiancé, William. Of course, I was delighted to say yes! My favorite part of being a Maine Notary Public is the ability to marry people. Each couple is so unique. Each ceremony so different.
Katherine is an exquisite gardener. She has a captivating garden in her backyard. This is where she and William decide to hold their wedding ceremony. What better place to get married than at home among the chrysanthemums, marigolds, and dahlias? Among the guests, a flock of mourning doves, waiting in anticipation high atop the tree branches - winged witnesses to this special occasion.
The ceremony is simple, yet elegant. Katherine and William have chosen a single violinist for music. How inspired! As Katherine emerges from behind her beautifully landscaped garden's fence door, the violinist plays enchanting music while the maid of honor ethereally flutters rose petals before Katherine’s wedding path. She radiates graceful beauty. All eyes are on the beautiful bride as William gazes in loving awe at his vision in antique white.
To be part of such magic fills me with such joy and happiness. It’s truly an honor and a privilege to be part of such an intimate journey’s beginning.
To Katherine and William: may each passing day fill your hearts with joy, love, laughter, and happiness. Thank you for allowing me to join you in matrimony. Thank you for inviting me into your home to witness first-hand how the magic of marriage really can begin at home.
