On the evening of Thursday, August 8, 2013, I was able to officiate at the beautiful wedding of Andrea Michelle Hogan and Christopher Martin Howell. This couple chose to meet me at the beautiful Forsyth Park.
There are so many things I love able these elopement weddings. Andrea and Chris were able to focus on each other. Their love and warmth were palpable.
Andrea’s dress was beautiful. She made the bouquet, and even some of the passers-by admired it. Chris and I joked that his anniversary of 8-8 should be easy to remember.
At the end of the ceremony, to everyone’s delight, I shouted, “Ladies and Gentlemen, City of Savannah! It is my privilege and honor to introduce for the first time: Mr and Mrs Chris and Andrea Howell!”
Strangers applauded and cheered.
Thank you, Chris and Andrea, for a beautiful memory.
