I recently officiated a wonderful Tallahassee Wedding Ceremony at Lichgate on High Rd.
Everything about this wedding was tailored to fit Will and Michelle’s personalities. Michelle and Will have been together for 13 years and were excited to take the next set in their relationship. They asked me for a personalized ceremony that told their unique love story, had some humor, and was meaningful. I worked with Michelle to put together the perfect ceremony and was excited to perform it for them on their wedding day.
Their wedding ceremony was held under the beautiful iconic oak tree at Lichgate on High Rd. Will and Michelle and the bridesmaids and groomsmen stood on opposite sides than you would “typically” see; it was cool. The ceremony included Michelle and Will reading a poem by E.E. Cummings that is very special to them. They feel that the poem honors their journey of falling in love from afar and being inspired to do crazy things for the sake of love – like moving across the country or asking one’s parents to let a stranger from online move in. They read alternating stanzas of the poem. It was like nothing I had ever seen before- very special, heartfelt, and perfect for their relationship.
After the ceremony guests were invited to enjoy an ice cream hour. The Lofty Pursuits ice cream truck was there serving delicious homemade ice cream while Michelle and Will took pictures.
Polished Arrow Photographer did an amazing job capturing Michelle and Will’s special day– check out more of their wedding pictures here.
Will and Michelle, may you cherish each other in the journey ahead as you go through life together. Thank you for allowing me to be your Tallahassee wedding ceremony officiant!
