Coxhall Gardens and Ritz Charles Garden Pavilion Wedding | Tavonna and Joseph

Bridal Earrings sit on ceremony program.

The summer air was warm. Music filled the amphitheater and gardens which were now shaded thanks to the clouds. Joseph re-buttoned his jacket. He steadied himself for a moment before walking down the stairs. He could see his parents, his family, and his friends. And, they were all smiling up at him as he stepped closer to the altar. He was about to get married. He smiled as the rest of the wedding party entered his Coxhall Gardens and Ritz Charles Garden Pavilion Wedding. His heart beating faster and faster.


“He didn’t want to miss a second. He wanted to remember the first day of the rest of his life.”


And then, the music changed. Joseph knew that Tavonna appear any second. His eyes didn’t move from the top of the staircase. Waiting to see his best friend, his bride. He didn’t want to miss a second. He wanted to remember the first day of the rest of his life. The day that he and Tavonna pledged their love before God. The day they became one. Joseph took a deep breath as he saw movement the top of the stairs. The archway was suddenly filled. Tavonna and her father had stepped forward. A smile broke across Joseph’s face. Tavonna smiled back.


Tavonna and Joseph,

You two. Where do I start? I knew that I couldn’t wait for your wedding from day one. Your calm spirits and love for God radiated during our first meeting. And, even more, your genuine hearts and desire to love those you picked to be a part of your wedding day was evident. So, I knew your wedding day would be special. Because two beautiful souls were being joined and knit together to forever serve and glorify God. And what a joyous occasion it was. So, here’s to forever, Mr. and Mrs. Kako! May the Lord bless your love and use it to make you more like him.
