Frank and Carol Ann celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary on August 15th. They celebrated by renewing their wedding vows at the Nantucket White Elephant. Joining them in the celebration were their family and closest friends. This is something that they have wanted to do for a very long time and Frank made it happen. Before the ceremony, Frank surprised her with not only a beautiful bouquet from Flowers on Chestnut but bringing James Lisante the priest that married them 25 years ago! She was so surprised when she saw him and it brought her to tears of happiness. Their children had major roles on this special day. Their Daughter Casey as Maid of Honor and Sean and Timmy as the Best Men. The Nantucket White Elephant is special to them as they come here when they visit Nantucket. It is such a classic Nantucket location for such a special event. The landscape and the boats made a wonderful backdrop during their ceremony and family photos. The children read passages from the bible to bless their Mother and Father during the Procession. I love how they made this day so personal for themselves and their family. After the ceremony, they gathered around for a toast and celebration before we took the formals. It was such a great time photographing this wonderful family. We shared lots of laughs and special moments. After the family formals, they went inside to finish the evening off with a delicious dinner. It was such an honor to be the one to capture such a beautiful moment in their lives. This family has so much love for one another and it radiated throughout their time together. I wish them a lifetime of happiness and love. Cheers to the Manzella Family!
