The ceremony: Part IV | A 10 minute ceremony closes After the sand ceremony, things were coming to a close. Michael and I rejoined hands once again, and Ron began to close. By the power vested in him by the state of Florida...all that jazz. He pronounced us husband and wife and announced us leaving with the same names we came in with. If you are considering this; it doesn't sound weird at all The violinist starts to play "Once upon a dream" and it's time to finally blow this popsicle stand! And we walk off into the sunset. Actually we don't. We walk about 10 steps to the entrance of SBP. Then the most awkward part of the wedding, so I can't believe they caught a decent picture...Michael and I stand there for a receiving line I guess. My sisters and mom hug Mike and then we pretty much just stand there and thank god Amy comes over and asks us if we want the champagne. YES PLEASE.
