The Ceremony

I am going to take this time to talk about my wedding ceremony. I wrote the ceremony on my own. Which made it super special. 

The song that the wedding party walked down the aisle to:

Kevin and his mom

Chris and Lauren

Jason and Ellie

Travys and Tess

Damon and Caraline

I walked down the aisle to Pachelbel's Canon in D


All the way down the world's longest aisle to this guy here.


So glad to have my dad here with me on that day.



We had a greeting, declaration of intention and then the readings.

The two readings were:

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
The Hand Blessing
These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever. These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future. These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other. These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and as in today, tears of joy. These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children, the hands that will help you to hold your family as one. These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it. And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.  May these hands be blessed this day.  May they always hold each other.  May they have the strength to hang on during the storms of stress.  May they remain tender and gentle as they nurture each other in their wondrous love.  May they build a relationship founded in love, and rich in caring.  May these hands be a healer, protector, shelter and a guide for each other.

Then there was the sermon, our vows, giving of the rings, acclamation, and introduction!




Back down that aisle as husband and wife!


Oh and did I mention that there was some wind?!




But I told that wind, no way are you ruining my day and we were all okay!
Victorious!

Your welcome for posting blooper shots that people act like they don't have. :-)
