Then Mahiely came down the other staircase, escorted by her father. She looked gorgeous!In order to prove himself to both families, Bokeem was asked to pick up his bride. He then asked both families if they would also help him take care of Mahiely.Next the minister had Mahiely remove her shoes in order to step on two blocks of clay. Once she had successfully molded her footprints into the clay, he presented them to Bokeem. He told him that he needed to keep those molds close to his heart and in a special part of his home because the footprints of his bride were something to be cherished.
We were then instructed to enter the ballroom where the reception would be held. They had cocktails & appetizers for about the first hour.
There were plenty of speeches, then salad and dinner. We danced for a while before the First Dance, and then continued dancing before the cake cutting.
We had a wonderful time with our friends!
