After a quiet morning and a few photos getting ready with their wedding party, everyone made their way to the Cira Centre for a beautiful private wedding ceremony.
Sounds of a piano greeted family and friends as they gathered for the wedding ceremony. A solo vocalist sang ‘Make You Feel My Love’ by Adele as Shakira made her entrance escorted by her father.
Shakira and Raymond chose to include a handfasting as part of the wedding ceremony, along with a reading of “The Couples Prayer.”
The newlyweds closed their wedding ceremony with “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder as they headed off for their wedding photos.
While wedding guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the newlyweds and wedding party headed off for some photos. These included a photo session with Shakira and Raymond in a rooftop garden overlooking the city of Philadelphia.
