Andre and Vicky had the single most celebratory wedding ceremony that we have ever experienced. With well over 500 people in attendance from all over the globe, literally the whole world was rejoicing in their marriage, including an eruption of applause when Vicky had made her way up the aisle to join with her groom. The atmosphere in the room was absolutely electric! The emotions ran high both on the stage and in the audience. The ceremony also included many details that represented their various backgrounds including some of the worship music and a communion ceremony conducted in Portuguese. Friend and painter Bryn Gillette completed a watercolor painting of the ceremony and presented it to them.
To include the “world” in their celebration, they held an open reception at the church so the entire church family could celebrate with them and it was a full house! After this larger reception where they had their cake cutting and a few speeches, they proceeded to the beautiful home of a friend for a much smaller and intimate gathering of close family and out of town guests. The evening was full of delicious food, relaxed and intimate interactions, and a lot of dancing which was to be expected considering both Andre and Vicky’s passion for dance.
Andre and Vicky, you have such a bright future ahead of you and we share in all the excitement and joy that was present on your wedding day. May you allow the beauty of your diversity to shine in dark places and inspire others to unity and goodness and may you never tire of serving each other and the entire world with the incredible talents and gifts you’ve been blessed with. We love you guys and wish you all the best!
