I told you I had two weddings to tell you about..well here is wedding #2…
Magdalena and Adi were married at the Driskill Hotel in downtown Austin. I booked this one kind of last minute…perhaps it was just one little detail they forgot? As the couple lives in Houston, I “met” Magdalena over the phone – she must have liked what I had to say as she quickly booked my services as officiant for her wedding day.
I was very excited to hear they were getting married at The Driskill as that was the location of the first wedding I ever officiated! It’s kind of nice to return to your roots every now and then. Plus, it is just a gorgeous location, isn’t it?
I met Adi as I came up the steps to the Citadel Club – he looked very nice in his suit… if perhaps a little anxious to get this show on the road. The ceremony took place in a cozy room standing in front of a fireplace. The lovely bride was escorted by her father – there were no honor attendants. She was beaming in her white gown with beaded bodice. In fact, I had to hand her a tissue almost immediately as her emotions threatened to get the better of her right away.
The ceremony was simple and one of my favorites incorporating humorous vows that really personalized it just for them. Their guests loved it – and I think they really enjoyed knowing their guests were caught off guard by the quirkiness of it. I’m certain they had never attended a wedding ceremony quite like it.
Magdalena and Adi – it was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your wedding day. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness.
