Lauren and Greg chose the amazing Mission Inn Resort & Club for their wedding ceremony. This fantastic venue is located in the rolling hills of Howey-in-the Hills, Florida, and is just a short drive from the Central Florida, Orlando, Florida attractions such as Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld, and Universal Orlando Resort.
From the beginning it was about fun and enjoyment. The rehearsal the day before their big day consisted of not only practice, but a lighthearted atmosphere that helped their ceremony officiant Lon Tosi from Sensational Ceremonies, and Celebration Florida create a wonderful learning environment. Also, they had a great group of friends and family members attending the festivities. Their bridal party alone had twelve intimate friends and family, and a group of One-hundred and fifty looked on as they exchanged vows of love. The bride and groom clearly enjoyed the entire two day event, with much laughter and smiles. Light and happy was the tone for their marriage celebration.
Lon had worked with the couple for nearly a year to perfect their custom ceremony. It featured a certain “love theme” that could not be missed. Lon performed the gorgeous What Is Love that includes the following sentence. “Love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be spent, a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places”. So true! The ever popular readings The One, and Falling In Love were preformed by family friends. This was a mixed religion ceremony that contained a nod to the Jewish faith of the bride with the traditional Breaking of the Glass and those always recognizable words “Mazel Tov” which means good luck, and congratulations.
It is important to note that the always popular Blessing of the Hands included the following customization: “These are the hands that now wear your wedding rings”. That was such a great addition to the already beautiful hand blessing that tells the story a couple’s relationship as told through their hands. Perfect!
