Joan and David Have An Intimate Ceremony Surrounded By Their Family

Joan and David met in 2009 through Match.com. (Yet another wonderfully paired couple through Match.) They had an instant rapport that extended immediately to her son and daughter and right away it was great for everyone. So for this family, this wedding was very important and very special.

Joan and David have recently built a home so it was decided the wedding would take place in their back yard, beside their pool. With the combination of the blue of the water, the golden sun setting around us, lighting up the autumn woods behind us, and with the family love surrounding us, the air was sparkling.

This is a photo of the family - left to right; Joan’s mom, Joan’s daughter/Maid of Honor, Joan, David, Joan’s son/Best Man, Joan’s sister, and in the front, the Honorary Bridesdog.

Joan thought there would not be any music for the ceremony, but David had a surprise in store for her. As her son walked her down from the house to join us, David played a song that was special to them and the surprise and caring got all of us ladies choked up, especially Joan.

During the ceremony, they said traditional vows and wanted to exchange bonsai trees as a symbol of their love and care for one another. As they exchanged the trees, they said these words;

“While these unique trees grow throughout their lives, they will grow differently. But they will always continue to grow together and be bound by the strength of their roots.” 

It was a beautiful moment and David played a second song here entitled “You Are My Best Friend.” It was perfect.


After the ceremony, Joan spoke with her friend on the phone, who had been listening to the ceremony the whole time. (Why didn’t we think of Skype?!)


While David wiped Joan’s tears for happy, the Bridesdog was enjoying the yard and the fun. She was now off the leash and free to romp as she pleased and took full advantage of it.



Then we did some traditional photos of the happy couple, the family (above) the rings and the beautiful bouquet.


Love this shot I caught of Joan looking at David.

After a bit, we all went inside and shared some delicious Italian sparkling wine that tasted like champagne. Joan’s son toasted the newlyweds with a very touching speech he had written and Joan’s father, who is no longer with us, was remembered by the family.

Joan and David, I know you are going to be so happy in your new home, surrounded by the love of your family, with your own love at its core. Knowing that bonsai trees take a lot of care and live a long, long time, I can just imagine you and those trees years from now, thriving side by side, together.
