Two Shall Become One

Well we did it!  John and I got married.  Last Saturday, May 7, 2005. 

      

Everyone said it was a beautiful ceremony.  I shall never forget saying my vows.  John says all that he was aware of was me, and the vows that Fr. George was reading for him to repeat.  He had no awareness of any of his surroundings.  John made it easy for me, because I was so nervous, lol, and hearing him say his vows so firmly and loudly made me more secure and better able to do my part!

The Gospel Reading and sermon was extra special to me.  The Bible Reading was John 2:1-11.  It was about Jesus changing the water into wine at Cana.  Fr. George said he chose this reading because it reminded him of me and John.  He said that John and I had very difficult lives in a way, but that God gave us each other to be the joy (wine) in each other's lives.

I wanted to show you a close up.  I call this photo my "Deer in the Headlights" Pic.  Because I look like I was so frightened!  Perhaps it was taken before the wedding, because that is when I was so nervous (ask Val, she had to hold my hand!).  I wanted to show you this because it is a good one of my gown and veil.  My Mom made the veil!  Isn't she talented? 

      

My sister Valerie was my Maid of Honor.  She was fantastic to me.  She has been fantastic for months.  Thanks, I love you, Sissy.  Here is Valerie with her children Chelsea and Matt.  The kids were also a part of the ceremony.  They also did fantastic "just married" artwork on the car before we went on our honeymoon!  Good thing they used paint that was water soluble. 

    

My Dad of course gave me away.  And my Mom was part of the Unity Candle Ceremony.  I want to thank my parents for everything they have done for me to make our big day special.  They are the greatest!

   

We will cherish the memory of the wedding for the rest of our lives, knowing that it is the beginning of a beautiful marriage. (quote from John!)
