Andrea and Lazaro met almost 7 years prior to the date of their wedding, June 12, 2013. They were in a crowd of folks watching the Miami Heat Championship and struck up a conversation. Laz was intrigued by Andrea's smile and she noticed what a gentleman he was. After a few exchange of words, they discovered their sense of humor was definitely a match so they decided to see each other again. And, as they say, the rest is history! At some point they decided to marry and began planning their wedding. Andrea and Laz wanted a small family only wedding and they chose the lovely Raleigh Rose Garden at Raleigh Little Theater. They hired Matt Kanon to play guitar and Rick Fisher to take the photos. The English Garden furnished their pretty flowers. 
When I arrived, Laz used his best man's (Alex) back to complete the request for certified copies and write the check that I mail in with the license. That saves them the step of requesting them later.
Alex signs the license as a witness. It was then time to begin and after the families took their seats, Laz, Alex and I took our places up in front of the little fountain.
Melissa, the Maid of Honor, made the long walk down the garden aisle.
Andrea and her father, David, entered and he placed Andrea's hand into Laz's. And we began.
There were chairs for everyone but some preferred to stand. 
The ceremony was a brief one but filled with sentiment and a bit of good humor as one would undoubtedly expect from Laz and Andrea!
They made their vows and exchanged rings.....

Andrea and Laz, I know you will have a great marriage filled with love and a lot of laughter! Congratulations and best wishes!
