Candice & Phil’s wedding was simply a blast!  I knew from their engagement session that their wedding day would be full of joy and laughter — these two elements were delivered in spades!

Without exaggerating, Candice’s father gave one of the most meaningful toasts I had ever heard.   I can only hope to one day give a toast half as meaningful as the one he gave.  Phil is a sports writer and, throughout the day, there were lots of references to athletics.  Here Candice’s father is holding a non deflatable basketball as a visual reminder to never let their relationship “deflate.”

…you may notice the basketball rim in the background.  At traditional receptions, guests tap their glasses with a knife to get the couple to kiss.  At Candice and Phil’s reception, guests had to make a basket to get our bride and groom to kiss.

…Phil serves on the worship team at their church and, during the reception, serenaded his bride with an original song…
