Our priest was absolutely wonderful! Nick and I are so blessed that he came into our lives and his faith in God is truly inspiring. He will always be so dear to us.
After all the guests were seated, my dear friend Molly (who is one of the most gifted singers I have ever met) sang a beautiful acapella version of "What A Wonderful World" to start off the ceremony. It was so beautiful, we were standing there waiting to walk down the aisle with our jaws dropped at how amazing she was. The wedding coordinator at the church said she was one of the best singers she had ever heard! Bravo Molly!
We had a string trio playing the music for us, they did a fabulous job!
Our wedding party and parents walked in to "Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring" by Bach.

I walked down the aisle with my dad to "Canon" by Pachelbel. I had so many (good) butterflies!
Father did a greeting and opening prayer and then we did our readings we chose:
First Reading was Tobit 8:4-8 read by Nick's sister Julia
Responsorial Psalm was 145:8-9, 10, 15, 17-18 “The Lord is Compassionate” read by my cousin Bill
Second Reading was Philippians 4:4-9 read by my Godmother Kate
Gospel was Matthew 22:35-40 and then Father gave the Homily
Father is a funny guy too!
We then did the Rite Of Marriage, our exahnge of vows and the prayers of the faithful was read by my Aunt Janet
We did one final blessing, first kiss and intorduction by Father as the new Mr. and Mrs. and walked out to "Spring" by Vivaldi.

Yay! We're married!!!
