Iowanna Marry You: The Ceremony Begins

I only sat by myself for a moment or two to collect myself before joining the rest of the wedding party. Our prelude music had been playing sweetly when I left the sanctuary, and by the time I had walked out, I could hear the ending strains of “Viva la Vida” by Coldplay, instrumental by Vitamin String Quartet, playing. This was the music that our honored guests and Mr. D walked out to. First to walk was Mr. D’s grandmother, escorted by my step-brother A, who was also an usher:


Next was my grandmother who was escorted by our other usher, my younger brother B:


Then my step-father escorted my mother down the aisle:

Next Mr. D’s father walked Mr. D’s step-mother down the aisle:


Finally Mr. D brought up the rear with his mother, along with Pastor Marty:


Once Mr. D took his place at the end of the aisle, the music changed to the next song. We chose the Vitamin String Quartet instrumental of “Bubbly” by Colbie Caillat.

The wedding party processional began with BM C and GM S:


Then GM P and BM D:


Then GM J and BM S:


Next was BM J and GM B:


Then was BM A and GM C:

Up Next: Miss Doily takes her last steps as a single woman and the ceremony begins!
