Using a Pastor or a Wedding Officiate or even a Preacher that will Marry you is pretty much status quo for Modern Brides. Having a Priest that you know can be a great comfort and spiritual confirmation in a Wedding for many couples.

Diroslyn and Lee were a true love story and will forever hold a place in our hearts. Some of my favorite moments from their day were ones they gave me Diroslyn calling me into the bridal suite to say thank you and give me hugs. And when Lee and Diroslyn walked down the aisle Lee blowing a kiss saying , "Thank You." To watch the tenderness they had for each other and everyone around them was a true blessing. Thanks to Felecia's Photography for capturing their day, to ChefBob Birmingham's team for the amazing meal, and to Stephanie Brannaker flowers. Every moment of this day was perfect!
