Sometimes, even before the ceremony begins, I can feel the excitement, anticipation and pure joy guests have for the couple. Such was the case for Kevin and Tré. Family and friends laughed, cried and applauded throughout the service. When I pronounced them as husband and husband, the room erupted with cheers the likes of which I infrequently hear. So much love and support for this couple, and not surprisingly so. When we first met, I was taken by how easy-going and playful they were. They had this great way of balancing serious matters like core values and commitment with contagious laughter. I was delighted when they chose to hire me. On a side note, I was also delighted when David Beahm came up to me and praised my ceremony. Wow! What a compliment. Thanks Christina for the gorgeous white phalaenopsis orchid. Made me feel special. You’re so sweet.

Happy Wedding Anniversary Tré and Kevin!! #BrilliantlyWed, September 6th, 2015

I’ll never forget Eva and Troy. Not just because they are a very sweet couple who were and still are so in love, but also because of what happened during their ring exchange. When it came time for Troy to place the ring on Eva’s finger, instead of taking her left hand he took her other hand. As her started to take off her engagement ring, I wondered what he was doing. I wasn’t alone. Eva too had a look of confusion. Troy then reached into his pocket and pulled out another engagement ring. As he placed it on her finger, what he was doing became clear. Where once there was a simple, solitary and understated stone, a more brilliant ring now graced Eva’s hand. With bands of pave diamonds wrapped around a notably larger center stone, troy was making a statement. I started to choke up. By the time the ring was completely on her finger, Eva was crying. The wedding party was crying. Guests were crying. It appeared Troy had surprised everyone. We then went on to exchange wedding bands. My eyes were still watery from what was to this day, my greatest ring exchange experience EVER!

Happy Wedding Anniversary @emg_tigner and @troytnyc!! #BrilliantlyWed this month, September 4th, 2015

Ivette and Denise grew up in the same neighborhood in Queens. Ivette’s sister and Denise were best friends when the two first met. Although Ivette was only 12, she know even then that there was something special between them. Later in Junior High, they became good friends. After High School, they both went their separate ways, married and had a total of eight children. One went to Puerto Rico, while the other ended up in Washington State. Two divorces and thirty-five years later, Ivette saw Denise on a mutual friend’s Facebook page and decided to reach out. They soon met in person and spent two weeks catching up on all the lost years, not just when they were apart but the stories of growing up in Queen’s Village. Some they knew they shared and some they didn’t know they shared until then. “We have chosen Queens Village to get married because this is where our beginning has always been. We just didn't know because we were both too young to understand. We both decided to bring it back to the neighborhood where we grew up as children, and will now continue as wives.” After all those years, they found each other again, neither of them thinking that they would find true love. Even Ivette’s Aunt Iodia told her to “not mess this up” because their family loves Denise so much.

Happy Wedding Anniversary Ivette and Denise!! #BrilliantlyWed this month, August 20th, 2016

Crushin on this awesome sneak peek from Danni and Arjun’s wedding last weekend. From looking at this photo, the only clue indicating it was a brisk San Francisco day is the gentle flow of Danni’s bouquet ribbon and the hem of my dress. All the guests were delighted to be there. Congratulations @thefattykid and @arjunjolly! #BrilliantlyWed one week.

Ten years ago today, I promised my heart. Happiest day of my life. It feels so wonderful to travel life’s journey with my best friend and love of my life – a man I admire, respect and adore. More deeply than I ever imagined, I’ve come to know faith, hope and love because of him. I know the Divine has more incredible things in store for us. Looking forward to continuing the miracle of love. Happy Anniversary Puddy Cat.

One of the things I love about travelling in both India and Egypt, is the prevalence of Jasmin. I LOVE Jasmine. In Egypt, it’s not uncommon to pass a lady on the street and catch a hint of her Jasmine perfume. In India, ladies often style their hair with Jasmine garlands. Whenever I’m in either local, I make a point to grab some essential oil and purchase garlands from the local street vendors. I feel very feminine whenever I wear garlands of this pleasantly pungent but delightfully comforting blossom.
. . .
The name Jasmine is derived from the Persian yasmin which means "a gift from God". In India and throughout the Himalayas region, jasmine is a sacred flower associated with love, sensuality and spiritual awakening.
. . .
At the opening of their Hindu-Korean ceremony, Prashanthi and Ben exchanged garlands of Jasmine. In the Hindu tradition these garlands are given to the couple to ensure their loves lasts and may be exchanged at various points before, during and after the ceremony. After getting to know this couple, I have to say that it was also a statement of the beautiful simplicity characteristic of Ben and Preshanthi’s personal style.

Happy Wedding Anniversary this week Prashanti and Ben!! #BrilliantlyWed July 18th, 2015

There are lots of traditional, tried and true wedding readings but now and then, a couple chooses a reading, while unusual for a wedding, is perfect for them. For the most part, Marla and Anthony had a very traditional ceremony at but for their second reading they chose lyrics from a Grateful Dead song, “Attics of My Life”. The couple asked a good friend to read this sweet, profound and timeless prose under the beautiful garden rotunda at The Estate at Florentine Gardens.
. . .
In the attics of my life, full of cloudy dreams unreal.
Full of tastes no tongue can know, and lights no eyes can see.
When there was no ear to hear, you sang to me.
I have spent my life seeking all that's still unsung.
Bent my ear to hear the tune, and closed my eyes to see.
When there was no strings to play, you played to me.
In the book of love's own dream, where all the print is blood.
Where all the pages are my days, and all the lights grow old.
When I had no wings to fly, you flew to me, you flew to me.
In the secret space of dreams, where I dreaming lay amazed.
When the secrets all are told, and the petals all unfold.
When there was no dream of mine, you dreamed of me.
. . .
Happy Wedding Anniversary this week Marla and Anthony!! #BrilliantlyWed July 14th, 2012

Jennifer and Scott love the beach. In fact, the beach is where they first met. So when they chose to get married, they knew they wanted a place where the beach meets Southern Charm; something relaxed, intimate and still elegant and timeless. The Old Field Club, situated on the waters of Long Island’s North Shore, was perfect for them.
. . .
Almost four years after they met on Fire Island, July 4th, they tied the knot among 150 friends and family before heading to Antiqua for some relaxation on, you guessed it, the beach.
