34: Today is a day you will always remember, the greatest in anyone’s life. You’ll start off the day just two people in love and end it as husband and wife. It’s a brand-new beginning, the start of a journey, with moments to cherish and treasure. And although there’ll be times when you both disagree, these will be outweighed by pleasure. You’ll have heard many words of advice in the past, when the secrets of marriage were spoken, but you know that the answers lie hidden inside, where the bond of true love lives unbroken. So live happy forever as lovers and friends. It’s the dawn of a new life for you, as you stand there together with love in your eyes, from the moment you whisper “I Do.” And, with luck, all your hopes and your dreams can be real, may success find its way to your hearts. Tomorrow can bring you the greatest of joys but today is the day it all starts. | On your Wedding Day By Anoymous Read by Lou Taylor
35: I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you,not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out. I love you for putting your hand into my heaped-up heart and passing over all the foolish, weak things that you can’t help dimly seeing there and for drawing out into the light all the beautiful belongings that no one else has looked quite far enough to find. I love you because you have done more than any creed could have done to make me good, and more than any fate could have done to make me happy. You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign. You have done it by being yourself. Perhaps that is what being a friend means after all. | I love you By Roy Croft Read by Patricia McCarthy

38: We are here today in the presence of family and friends to share with the Bride and Groom the most important moment in their lives. We do this as the legal requirement to be married in the state of Massachusetts but this ceremony does not alter the love required to be husband and wife. Without the love between these two people we would not be here today. The step which you are about to take is the most important into which human beings can come. It is a union of two people founded upon mutual respect and affection. Your lives will change, your responsibilities will increase, but your joy will be multiplied if you are sincere and earnest with your pledge to one another.
39: I, Jamie Taylor, take you, Sara Leonardo, to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, to love and to cherish, from this day forward. I, Sara Leonardo, take you, Jamie Taylor, to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, to love and to cherish, from this day forward. | With this ring I thee wed.
40: "Let these rings be given and received as a token of your affection, sincerity and fidelity to one another. In as much as Jamie and Sara have consented together in wedlock and pledged their vows to each other, It is also the wish of everyone here today that your marriage bring each of you much happiness, by the authority vested in me by the State of Massachusetts, I now pronounce you husband and wife. Jamie you may now kiss your bride."

54: The year was 2003 and Sara, as part of a student exchange program at Keen State College, decided to do a semester abroad at Oxford Brookes University in England. She landed in England September 20, 2003, took the bus to Oxford, nestled in at her dorm - Warneford Hall. It was Fresher’s Week (or Freshmen week as we say here in the states). The first week is an introduction to the school with a different themed party every night. This night, the entire dorm was going out for a welcome drink and this is where Jamie and Sara first met. It turned out that Jamie lived on the ground floor of Warneford Hall and Sara lived just above, on the middle floor. Soon it was November, and Sara and Jamie had been dating for almost a month when the movie Love Actually was released to theatres. Love Actually is about falling in love and the heart wrenching hello’s and goodbyes at London’s Heathrow Airport. Jamie and sara would soon experience many hello’s and goodbyes at Heathrow, so this movie has a special place in each of their hearts. Now it was December and Sara’s exchange program was over, and so it was time for a heart wrenching goodbye at London’s Heathrow airport. As they clung to one another and kissed good bye, Sara wondered WHEN would she see the love of her life again. A few short days later the agony of separation from the woman he loved overcame Jamie and he sped across the Atlantic to be with his beloved Sara. He arrived in time for a magical surprise and a wonderful and romantic new year’s eve. Next, Jamie arranged to study, on exchange, at Keene State, where Sara was still a student. And so, from August 2004 – May 2005. Jamie stayed with Sara for her last year at Keene. Wednesday night at Keene was their date night because their favourite Mexican restaurant, called Margaritas, did a buy one get one free for college students. Jamie and Sara always shared the Chicken Lime Cilantro Dish which is what inspired the chicken dish we have on the menu for dinner here tonight. After Sara’s Graduation in May, 2005 Jamie and Sara flew to Las Vegas and learned to play Texas Hold’em poker which they both really enjoy and have continued to play ever since. They will return to Vegas next week for five magical nights and will be staying at the Monte Carlo Casino. The last night of their honeymoon will be New Years Eve on the Las Vegas Strip. With Graduation and Vegas in the rear view mirror Sara moved to Oxford England while Jamie was in his last year at Oxford Brookes. The city of Oxford will always be special to our newlyweds as this is where they met, dated, fell in love and got engaged. | Our Love Story and Introduction Written by our Djs Curtis and Anna Curtis Knight Entertainment
55: Shotover Park is a park in Oxford that over looks the city. It is here at Shotover park where Jamie proposed to his beloved Sara. On that special night Sara arrived home from work to find a mysterious note from Jamie to take his car and meet him at Shotover park. The cryptic note said that when she got to the park she was to take the flash light from the glove box and use it to find her way from the parking area down the path to the park. Now, Jamie had arrived at the park hours earlier to set up his surprise proposal. Jamie meticulously prepared a vast array of fireworks that were to fire in sequence creating a timed aerial, romantic spectacle to act as the backdrop for his proposal. He carefully prepared the fuses so that everything would fire just so. Then, he laid a heart shaped floor mat on which to kneel and profess his love. The plan was to secretly wait for Sara to arrive, then run back and light the fuses to the fireworks, then strut to the heart shaped mat and be ready to kneel and propose...with the fireworks, creating the perfect backdrop. However, when Sara arrived, she headed down the path and was almost upon Jamie. Jamie had lit the fuse, and it would have timed perfectly...but the fuse would not light. Like a maniac he continued to try and light the fuse...and then, in desperation he decided to try lighting the fuse closer to the fireworks. This made the fireworks begin to fire off almost immediately - TOO SOON in fact. There was no time to run to the mat and get into position. The plan was coming apart. Jamie rushed to Sara, got down on one knee on his heart shaped mat and gasping for breath, asked Sara to marry him. As Sara’s mind raced, and her eyes widened, she thought for a moment, and said “Are you sure?” Jamie laughed and then, ever so romantically said... “yes.” Now Jamie and Sara make their home in Bournemouth, along with their cats Snuggles and Spice. Bournemouth is a sea side village in the South of England, nestled along side the English Channel. | As we greet our new bride and groom, you will see them dance their first dance as husband and wife, with a song performed by Uncle James. Listen carefully at the beginning as Sara and Jamie speak a secretly recorded message to one another, not heard by the other till today, during their upcoming dance. And now get ready to show your love by making a lot of noise for a romantic couple whose unstoppable Trans-Atlantic love affair spanned 6 years, two countries, two colleges and multiple trans Atlantic flights The all new Mr. and Mrs. Jamie Taylor.
