Shotgun Wedding - NOT!

I love it when couples add a bit of their personalities to their wedding ceremony. Abigail asked if she could bring a few props for photos. Little did I know that it would include a shotgun. What fun! However, the smiles give it away. Just hard not to smile during this wedding.

Gun or no gun, "She's mine!"
October weddings have become very popular. Warm days, cool nights.
Yesterday was a little rainy and cool, not perfect weather.
But it was a perfect day for Abigail and Ryan's wedding
Heartfelt promises were made.
Rings were exchanged.
I give you this ring as a symbol of our vows, 
and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you. 
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 
With this ring, I thee wed.
A Unity Sand ceremony is a great way to include children.
I always suggest couples take a few minutes to be alone
immediately after the ceremony. I didn't have to tell these two. 
They were so happy to be married I'm not sure they even remembered we were nearby.

'It's hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile'
Time for pictures.
 So happy that I added this empty frame to my wedding props.
It's true, "All because two people fell in LOVE"
This sign will be displayed in their new home.
And even though it was a little rainy, Abigail was determined
to get close to the water for a few photos.

The wedding is over but the marriage has just begun.
Best wishes to a wonderful couple.

Beth and Harold - Ready for Love (and Marriage)

I am ready for love
If you'll take me in your hands
I will learn what you teach
And do the best that I can
I am ready.
'Ready for Love' - India.Arie 
Does this bride look happy or what.
And the reason she is so happy. Today was the beginning of always.
Holding on tight. Just a little nervous.
Wedding rings. To seal and bind their love.
Ring Blessing
Air for hopes and dreams; 
Fire for the spark of love; 
Water for harmony and healing; and 
Earth for strength. 
May these rings be so blessed.
 Unity Cross.
What God has joined together, let no one separate.
When I found you...I found somebody who cares
When I found you...I found my most intimate prayer
When I found you...I found what every heart dreams of
When I found you...I found love.
