3: We can truly rejoice on this day because we know without a doubt that God has called us to commit our lives to one another, but this would have never taken place if we first didn't commit our lives to Jesus Christ. We made this commitment to Him on the basis of four facts. | To Our Wedding Guests | 1. God loves us very much and wants the most meaningful life for us. 2. We can't experience this on our own because we have sinned and become the god of our own life. 3. Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin. 4. We can accept Christ's payment for our sins by trusting our lives to Him and asking Him into our hearts. | We believe this is not only the basis for the best marriage, but for the best life. Won't you commit your life to the One who loved you enough to die for you? | Love, Dave and Cathy

6: I'll Always be Daddy's Girl... Winona
12: My Dear Cathy, I love you. I thank our God that He has given you to me as a helper, someone to share my life with. I believe you are God's very best for me. It humbles me to know of the great responsibility I am taking this day. But I trust that God will surely make me adequate to do what I believe so strongly is His will. Because I am confident that this is His will, I can wholeheartedly vow that I will do my best to lead you, to love you, to provide for you, to protect you and to be faithful to you. I further vow to continually seek God's will for our lives and to do all I can to fulfill you.
13: David, I love you. God has called me to you, to love you and cherish you all the days of my life. I pray that I will be worthy of this privilege. I desire to be used of Him to fashion you into the best man He desires. Our Father wants His best for you and He sent me to help you strive for His best and not to settle for anything less. I vow before our Lord that I will do the best I can to obey you, to love you, to serve you and honor you as the head of our home. I know it will not always be easy,but I know that God has hand picked and chosen me for you. So I believe that He will grant me all that I need to be your helpmeet.
15: Our Families
21: My dad really wanted to have a dance but the church we were going to at the time was not big on dancing. We decided that there would be a cake reception after the wedding and later in the evening have an informal supper and a dance. He noticed that at weddings, there would be a separation of different circles of friends and family. Therefore, he proposed that we would have a square dance to mix the groups up. It didn't matter whether or not you know how since everyone was taught by the caller. It proved to be a big success!
