wedding, part three: going to the chapelPosted: June 2, 2011
after taking some pictures, we all made our way to our church – Westerly Road Church – where the wedding ceremony would take place. the sanctuary was transformed with greenery, urns overflowing with flowers, decorative burlap panels, and a beautiful lighted arbor which now resides in my parents’ backyard. i think the progression of photos is mostly self-explanatory, but two things to note: we included an “honoring of parents and grandparents” near the end of the service during which we had a wonderful hug-fest with our family – my grandmom almost made me completely lose it with tears; and also, in the fifth photo from the end (in front of the cross) we are taking communion for the first time as husband and wife – probably the most meaningful and emotional part of the service for us.
