Mr & Mrs Kirkwood

Lauren & Robert were married in The Meeting House at Carillon Beach in full military regalia. Who doesn’t love men in uniform? Robert in his dress blues had not only a great bunch of groomsmen, but also traditional Army Sabre Bearers. I loved that after the ceremony, the newlyweds exited the Meeting House under the sabres. As the couple recessed through the arch of swords, that the last two men to make up the arch lower their swords in front of the couple, detaining them momentarily as they kissed, while the sword bearer on the right, with his sword, gives the bride a gentle “swat” on the rump and utters, “Welcome to the Army.”

Lauren’s mom who is affectionately called Mrs. Murph by the couples friends, was able to fully enjoy each and every moment of her eldest daughters wedding, thanks to the wonderful planning by Victoria and Avis. Robert’s mom, had the blue glasses engraved with a “M” and were the perfect keepsake for their guests.

Lauren, Robert and I were able to sneak away for a few minutes before sunset. They truly enjoyed each other and were so much fun to photograph!

A delicious seated dinner in the Meeting House by Townsend Catering (the very best!) was enjoyed by all in the romantic atmosphere. Their guests danced and really had a blast during the reception! The {PG} PhotoBooth was enjoyed by the guests, as you can see below. It is a great addition to any wedding reception. They were all dancing and singing, especially the army guys in their dress blues.

Mr & Mrs Kirkwood left their reception under a hail of gigantic sparklers. Congratulations Lauren & Robert!
