David and Melissa wanted to do a very fun and whimsical wedding event. Their theme was the circus. When they came into my office and we discussed their ceremony they knew that I was the right one to perform the ceremony. I pitched them on the idea of me dressing up like the ringmaster and they love the idea.
I searched for the perfect costume and accessories. On the day of the wedding we started the ceremony with the DJ playing “Entry of the Gladiators” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entrance_of_the_Gladiators which is the quintessential circus song. and I said “Ladies and Gentlemen and children of all ages welcome to the greatest wedding on earth”. The rest of the ceremony was a fun filled celebration of their love story.
after the ceremony they had wonderful food and carnival games and even a kissing booth.
Franciscan Gardens is a wonderful venue. It is a wide open courtyard and can be configured in many ways. The staff there is wonderful to deal with and the food is fantastic.
