It was a warm August Saturday afternoon a few weeks ago at the Warwick Melrose Hotel that Mina and David tied the knot with their closest of friends and family to oversee.David was given the mission prior to the wedding to find a 2010 penny and he did a good job – every marriage should have a little “In God We Trust” rooted in it. As the cartoon “Love is…” from the newspaper holds a special place in Mina and David’s lives, David secretly collected a few of the recent ones and had one of the lovely young female guests to add to touch of reddish-blonde hair to represent Miss Mina – these were placed on the welcome guest table. Bo is Mina’s four-legged friend and since the Warwick is a dog-friendly hotel, Bo was able to participate in the day. Here he waits patiently for Mina to get dressed and then makes sure he is included in the photograph with Mina, her mom and sister. The special ladies who hung out with Mina before wedding and David with his lovely daughter. The wedding was officiated by a friend of Mina’s father and he had a special treat for them – this copy of “Love is…” which was in the newspaper a few days before the wedding and was most appropriate for this day. After the lovely ceremony, we headed downstairs for some photos while the room was prepared for the wedding feast.We finished up with the Bridal Party and then had a few quiet minutes for the newlyweds to get to visit and catch their breath. You can tell they adore one another! David is obviously a romantic at heart because beyond the “Love is” cartoons, he also had a brand made for the two which was incorporated in the reception in a variety of ways, from this ornament to the cake knives and toasting flutes. Mina and David stepped out on the balcony to view the city as the sun was setting and took advantage of the moment for a little practice before their first dance as a married couple.First Dance and Mina’s dance with her dad. After more visiting and dancing, we did some quick family photos before Bo departed for the evening. What a great ending to a wonderful time together for all involved.For all of Mina and David’s friends and family interested in seeing all of the photographs from the wedding when they are ready to view – please click here to be taken to Pictage.com which is Carpe Vita Photography’s preferred online proof viewer and lab.
