Talon Winery Wedding Print E-mail

 

Rev. Dr. Mike Dearing, a Louisville KY/Southern Indiana Wedding Officiant, assisted Amanda Rutherford and Boone McClaskey become husband and wife.  The ceremony took place at the Talon Winery near Lexington. KY.

Amanda and Boone used a custom Ceremony that was very romantic and spiritual.  It included vows that each had composed and a Handfasting Ceremony.  Normally four ribbons are used.  However, the couple chose to recognize their Scottish ancestry and used tartans in the family colors.

Amanda's daughter, Fiona, made a beautiful flower girl.  She did a great job.

It was a large wedding party and a blustery day for the outdoor affair.  However, Jeannie Smith, the Bridal Consultant with Ashby Wedding & Event Planning, helped assurred that everything went smoothly.

I had so much fun at Amanda's and Boone's wedding.  Thanks so much for having me officiate for you.

Rev. Dr. Mike Dearing, a Kentucky/ Southern Indiana Wedding Officiant, assisted Natalie Dearing and Shawn Sustrich become husband and wife.  The ceremony took place at her mother's house in Candler NC which is near Ashville NC. Natalie amd Shawn used the unique Ceremony of the Roses, a romantic and spiritual ceremony.  It is unique because Rev. Mike assists the couple in marrying each other instead of Rev. Mike marrying them.

The couple live in Seattle WA.  Her mother and step father, Cyrese and Frank Moore, offerred their house for the wedding.  This allowed Natalie's sisters to participate. It also gave us the Smokey Mountains for a back drop.

Inititially the Ceremony was to take place on the front porch steps.  It was moved under cover because Hurricane Matthew was on the east Carolina coast and provided us some strong gusting winds and occasional rain.  Although, The overcast skys were great for pictures.

 

Natalie is my niece and her cousin, my 10 year old grandaughter, Ashlynn Dearing, caught the bridal bouquet.  

Natalie's sisters, Autumn and Julie and Julie's children, Rose and Ryan, live near Ashville so they participated. Natalie's brother Bill drove in from Lafayette IN.

I had so much fun at Natalie and Shawn's wedding.  It gave me the chance to visit with my nieces and nephew.  I also had a nice visit with my son, Mark, and his family, Tonya and Ashlynn.  Mark was in Philidelphia on business and decided to return to Seattle via Ashville.  His wife Tonya and daughter, Ashlynn flew in from Seattle.

I enjoy every wedding that I officiate for.  However, this one was extra special. 

Thanks so much for having me officiate for you.
