We have a history in the family of big weddings but we wanted a small wedding.
A small wedding will hurt feelings. But what about a secret wedding?
We came up with the idea of a stealth wedding.
Only key parties will know...the Ring Bearer, in this case my son, Lucas; the officiant, Phil, and a family friend photographer.
The action takes place unannounced at a location known only to the bride and groom and the above 3 persons.
The selected uninformed family accompanies the bride and groom to the location not knowing that there will be a wedding at that location.
-- Boom --
-- Wedding --
5 minutes in a garden with minimum fuss.
A moment of confusion - Is this real?
2 rings exchanged
a few tears of joy
rest of life
happily ever after
reception to follow at leisure...
