S: Our Wedding - August 18th, 2001
BC: Allen & Cathleen Just Married...
FC: Our Wedding Celebration | Allen & Cathleen Huff | August 18th, 2001 Community Presbyterian Church Ventura, California
1: Once upon a time, God brought two soulmates together to be wed in the sleepy seaside town known as Ventura, California.
2: from the groom... | Today has arrived after so many previous mirages. My faith in an all-knowing and all-loving God is affirmed in the woman I have the ultimate privilege of joining today. I've prayed for her and at times, scarcely believed she existed. Cathleen holds my heart in her hands as no one else can. Our bond in Christ makes us complete.
3: from the bride... | The time has come to make a promise of marriage to each other before God, our families, and our friends. I always thought that soulmates and true love were for others... Little did I know that God had someone special in mind for me to meet, fall in love with, and who would become my best friend. With a handsome smile and warm hug, Allen captured my heart and kissed my soul. Today I proudly say “I Do” to the one I love.

53: Allen, I thank the Lord for you. Little did I know that November day that I met you at the Baptist Camp in Santa Ynez, California would be the first day of happiness for the rest of my life. There was something truly amazing behind your gorgeous smile. As the Lord whispered in my ear "There is something special about Allen..," I knew that my life would not be the same from that point on. And now I know that the Lord answered my prayers when he gently laid my heart in your hands. I love you, Allen! Happy 10th Wedding Anniversary! Love, Cathleen
