This wedding hits close to my heart. The couple had a marriage Covenant at a historic cathedral in Downtown Miami. It was hard to not get choked up when filming this wedding. The sermon was one of the most eloquent explanations on how their church supports same-sex couples in the journey of life and faith. This was our first time seeing a gay couple welcomed in any place of worship and it was beautiful. I hope to make a longer cut of the sermon, that is how much it touched my heart. – seriously, it was beautiful!
The couple are teachers who met in college at the University of Miami and they invited Sebastian (UM’s mascot) as the guest of honor. He took down the house, leading the party along with the guests using the photobooth. These two were surrounded by love, including a heartfelt toast from Sara’s father.
For this South Florida couple, we have edited a highlight video before we deliver the final film. Locate the tissues, this one may bring out a few tears.
