From the Event Planner

Charles and Vanessa Hollins were married the day before their only son was born 25 years ago. They were young, in love and decided against the formal wedding for that time. Here we are 25 years later and Mr. & Mrs. Hollins are ready to celebrate in a royal way. The couple wanted everything in their special day to have meaning. They decided on a royal theme and came to the conclusion that this ceremony was start of new beginnings for them. The number 8 was included throughout the wedding to represent those new beginnings. The couple had 8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen. They modeled their ceremony after the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The decor was simple yet elegant and worthy of a royal affair.
