Keith and Alexis chose to be married on the beachfront of the Wychmere Beach Club in Harwich, MA. They selected one of the best weather days of this fall season; it was a perfect 75 degrees with no wind and clear blue skies. The smell of fresh
salt air mixed with a hint of hydrangea flowers that adorned their wedding altar above. Marvelous would be an understatement to describe this couple's venue - a beautiful Cape Cod wedding!
Keith and Alexis added special touches for their wedding - as guests awaited their arrival, champagne, wine and water were served on the expansive veranda overlooking the sea. An exquisite view, I don't believe anyone was concerned about when the wedding would begin, their being so happy with the refreshments and the sights.
Guided to the beach wedding altar of beautiful blue and white flowers, Alexis' mom looked so proud to be giving her daughter to her soon-to-be husband, Keith. Smiles abounded as I asked all in the audience to take their seats.
Keith and Alexis had written their service to custom fit their dreams for what their ceremony would be; all was so special with their custom vows spoken to one another with tears in their eyes. The sun was shining brightly onto this couple as sunset approached this spot nearby the sea. One could hear the calls of seagulls as they soared along the rock formed pier in the distance.
Keith and Alexis exchanged rings symbolizing the infinity of their commitment to one another. The seagulls made circles above, their white feathers reflecting golden hues against the orange setting sun. Keith and Alexis smiled that intimate smile that expressed the love they felt for one another; all was truly perfect for this lovely couple.
Amidst cheers and applause, I pronounced Keith and Alexis to be "husband and wife" and they recessed up the sandy beach, making a U-turn toward the ocean front, laughing and whispering with one another. Suddenly, Keith lifted Alexis in the distance, she kicking her white flip flops into the air, pointing her manicured toes into the circle of blue sky like a perfect ballerina, and he elegantly holding her high, giving her a perfect wedding kiss!
Congratulations Keith and Alexis! May you always keep one another's spirits high, laughing and dancing your own special duet by the sea!
