Erin and Jesse were married on Saturday, January 05 at sunset. The ceremony was held on the sandy area behind the Pelican Beach Clubhouse in Satellite Beach with the reception inside the clubhouse. This type of ceremony is why I put weddings on my Kindle with a book light cover. The ceremony started with a little bit of light, but ended in the dark. Very very romantic!
Erin and Jesse were attended by a Maid of Honor, two Best Men, a flower girl and a ring bearer. The boys and the Maid of Honor are their children and what a beautiful family they are.
The weather held quite nicely and we only experienced a little bit of the drizzlies right before the reception.
Their ceremony included a lovely memorial to absent loved ones that consisted of a flower presentation to family members accompanied by Israel Kamakawiwoole's rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
After their ring exchange, the couple made step-parent vows to the children and presented each of them with a ring as a token of their unconditional love. I got choked up! And that wasn't from my previous coughing fit.
The celebrations had a hint of a Shrek theme going on, but very subtle. I didn't wear ogre ears to officiate as you can see from the photos. Tempting though.
