Congratulations to Brian and Melissa. They were married today at the Hunt Memorial building in Nashua, NH. It was a small wedding with lots of emotion and tasteful surroundings in the historical building.
The couple took their vows in the centre of the room, with some seated family in an arc arrangement either side of the aisle. The bridesmaids and groomsmen were in opposite arc formation to complete the circle around the couple. This allowed for a very intimate sharing of the vows, and as the officiant, Iwas standing outside of the group and addressing them from the sidelines. This is a technique that I use a lot. Not only does it give the photographer lots of photo opps. without having the restriction of the Minister being in the way, but it also creates a feeling of vow taking to each other and to your friends and family. They have me as the legal/spiritual witness to their vows, but it’s their daily companions that truly matter.
A beautiful location and a stunning bride. Congratulations!
