Remembering a Valentine Wedding twenty-two years ago, Georgianne and Paul renewed their wedding vows in front of 80 guests. Their original duo ministers performed the elegant ceremony. Each brought unique tenderness with poetry by Rumi and Gibran.

The sanctuary had a sacred Zen like feeling with a treasured Japanese Obi and Ikebana on the alter table. “You and I” and “The Rose” (a request from twenty years ago) was sung and all agreed that Love is what joins, flows, counts and GROWS.

The church reception hall was transformed into an English Garden for an elegant IMG_0403Champagne and High Tea Service. Treasured tea pots, crystal and hand painted vases were dressed with garden roses, calla lilies and parrot tulips. A close friend designed two entwined hearts and all the guests wrote love messages on fine Japanese papers that were fastened to the borders of the hearts.

Georgianne and Paul will have lots of time to read the happy wishes!
