FC: Our Wedding... July 30th, 2011
2: We are gathered here to celebrate the 15-year long relationship of Oliver and Cheryl, and to witness their commitment to each other in marriage.
3: The essence of the commitment of marriage is the acceptance of another person in his or her entirety. It is a decision which is not to be entered into lightly, but rather undertaken with great consideration and respect for both the other person and oneself.
4: Your love will give them courage When the way ahead is unclear And will give them strength, when needed To help overcome their fears...
5: A love that remains as constant as the stars in the heaven above... A gift no money on earth can buy, The gift of a mother's love ~
6: Her words are like a golden thread that binds our family, her wisdom like an art that's shared so generously, her feelings like a quilt that warms us like no other...
10: "We must give ourselves in love, but we must not give ourselves away. It is out of the tension between separateness and union that love is nourished and renewed."
12: "Marriage is the intimate sharing of two lives, a sharing which enriches and enhances the individuality of each partner."
13: "You gave me wings and made me fly You touched my hand I could touch the sky I lost my faith, you gave it back to me You said no star was out of reach You stood by me and I stood tall I had your love I had it all... I'm grateful for each day you gave me Maybe I don't know that much But I know this much is true I was blessed because I was loved by you!" | I miss you, Daddy ~
14: "Cherish the touch, For you are touching another life. Be sensitive to its pulse, For it is the heartbeat of the one you love."
16: "Today I marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love."
17: "Like your rings your two lives are now joined in one unbroken circle, a circle which includes Kyle and Nicholas..."
18: "May you grow in devotion to one another all the days of your lives and have such fulfillment of your mutual affection that you reach out in love and concern for others...."
20: "Treat yourselves and each other with respect, and remind yourselves often of what brought you together. Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness, and kindness that your connection deserves..."
28: "The hands which you each offer to the other are extensions of yourselves; Just as is the warmth and love which you express to each other..."
29: "I give you this ring as a pledge of my enduring love and my commitment..."
31: The Bride & Groom may kiss...
33: "Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It understands imperfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is content with the present, it welcomes the future, and it doesn't dwell on the past..."
34: "Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the newlyweds, Cheryl and Oliver!"
35: The Reverend Sheila Lodge

73: "When frustration, difficulty and fear assail your relationship - as they threaten all relationships at one time or another - remember to focus on what is right between you, not only the part that seems wrong. In this way you can ride out the storms when clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives. Remember that even if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there. And if each of you continues to take responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be marked by love, warmth and delight!"
