Marjorie and Lloyd were so happy when they found each other. They had been single a long time and were so amazed to have found a partner to share their lives with. They wanted a cozy wedding surrounded by their families and closest friends. The VIP Room at Caffe Luna was the perfect fit! 
Sherry Lattin with Florian Music provided the beautiful violin music. She and I have worked together for many weddings in the past 15 years and the solo violinist was perfect for this wedding.
Shooting the breeze with Parker Kennedy, the owner of Caffe Luna and also my neighbor. I love doing weddings here and he loves referring couples to me. It's quite perfect!
When we were ready to begin, I invited the guests to take their seats. Lisa Michaels, our photographer, got ready to get some great shots!
Lloyd and I were in first then his son Roger, best man, then Lloyd's grandsons, Justin and Brendan, as junior groomsmen. Lloyd's son Evan regretfully was not able to be with us due to his service in the military.
Ryan, ring bearer, and Lilly, flower girl, (also Lloyd's grandchildren) entered and took their places to my right. Behind them are their parents, Lloyd's daughter Mende and her husband Jim. Mende served as matron of honor and Jim as groomsman.
Marjorie was presented by her son, Eric, and her daughter, Chelsea, who was also her maid of honor.
And so we begin.......
Marjorie is Jewish and she could not imagine a wedding without the traditional Jewish wedding customs. One of these is the Cup of Wine the couple shares. "L'Chaim, may your cup of life runneth over!" 
Then it was the exchange of vows and rings followed by a special prayer read by Eric in Hebrew. 
I explained the symbolism of the breaking of the glass then as I made the pronouncement, Lloyd smashed the glass and kissed the bride!
We all shouted Mazel Tov which means congratulations and good luck! 
Happily married! 
Marjorie and Lloyd, thank you for the honor of joining your lives together in marriage. I wish you the best of everything always!
