24: is for us, as friends & family to be here in this beautiful setting for this wonderful occasion. We thank Clarissa & Joe for asking us to be here today to celebrate them as individuals and as a couple. Among so many other positive traits, Clarissa & Joe are the type of people who really are there whenever - and however - you need them. Together, these individual attributes are only intensified. | On behalf of Clarissa & Joe, I would like to welcome everyone here today. What an honor & a privilege it
25: As part of this ceremony, Clarissa & Joe will now take a moment to privately recognize their mothers. | Moving across the country, settling in to a new home...and a new home...and a new home...new experiences, new challenges...throughout all of this, Clarissa & Joe have persevered and grown together. No matter where they end up, their home is with one another. While it may be difficult at times to be far away from loved ones, it makes occasions such as this so joyous and valuable.
26: In many cultures around the world, joining hands is an enduring symbol of marriage. As each partner accepts the hand of the other, he or she is joyfully accepting the many gifts of married life, and offers the same in return. Clarissa, these are the hands of your best friend, young, strong & full of love for you. These are the hands that are holding yours on your wedding day as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow and forever. These are the hands that will | work alongside yours as together you build your future.
27: Joe, these are the hands that will love you, cherish you, and provide you comfort through the years. These are the hands that will hold yours in times of distress. These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it. | I ask you to keep your hands joined now, as you exchange your vows.
28: Will you answer me right now, These questions as your wedding vow? Yes, I'll answer you right now, Your questions as my solemn vow... Provided our guests don't have a cow. Will you love him if he's rich? Will you love her in a ditch? From today until the end of time, Even if his words don't rhyme? I will love her if she's rich, And I will love him in a ditch. And I will even love her when she's being a b....eautiful princess! Will you love with all your heart? Will you love 'til death do you part? Will you have and forever hold, Each others' hearts 'til the stars grow cold? I will love her forever a thousand fold, 'til death do us part and our blood grow cold... Or until our brains grow mold.
29: Will you love him for richer, for poorer? Will you love her for quiet or snorer? Will you love through good & bad? Will you love whether happy or sad? I will love him if he's poor.. I will love her if - I mean when - she snores. I will love him through good & bad, No matter whether she's happy or sad. 'Cause he's the best friend I've ever had. Will you take him as your mate? Will you have her as your date? From this day on and ever more, No matter what life may have in store? I will have her as my mate, Starting on this, our wedding date. If you'll be wed, through & through, Please answer with the words 'I do.' I do!
30: With this ring, I give you my promise That from this day forward You shall not walk alone. May my heart be your shelter, And my arms be your home. May God bless you always. May we walk together through all things. May you always feel deeply loved... because you are. With this ring, I give you my heart. | I have no greater gift to give. I promise I will do my best, In everything I undertake. I feel so honored to call you my husband. I feel so honored to call you my wife. I feel so blessed to call you mine. May we feel this joy forever. I thank God for you. I thank you for loving me.
31: Instead of a spoken prayer, Clarissa & Joe have asked the members of Sigma Alpha Iota to sing a benediction entitled "The Lord Bless You and Keep You." | Amen
32: Clarissa & Joe, your gift to each other on your wedding day has been your wedding rings. Those rings will always be a symbol of your vows of love and respect, and a public showing of your commitment to each other. | You now have what remains the most honorable title which may exist between a man and a woman - the title of 'husband' and 'wife.' As husband and wife, your first gift to one another will be a single rose. A rose always means one thing - it means the words 'I love you.'
33: In some ways, a marriage ceremony is like this: tomorrow may seem no different than yesterday. But, in fact, today - just now - you both have given and received one of the most valuable and precious gifts of life, one you will always remember: the gift of true and abiding love within the devotion of marriage. Let these roses be another symbol of that love. Clarissa & Joe, if there is anything you remember of this marriage ceremony, you will remember that it is love that brought you here today, and it is by love which your marriage shall endure. | In some ways it seems like you have not done anything at all. Just a moment ago you were holding one small rose - and now you are holding one small rose. | By virtue of the authority vested in me by the County of San Diego, I now pronounce you man and wife...
34: You may now kiss the bride!
38: "A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you." | Today I marry my best friend.
39: Mr. & Mrs. Joseph & Clarissa Constantine!
40: Now you're my whole life, Now you're my whole world, I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl, Like a river meets the sea, Stronger than it's ever been, We've come so far since that day, And I thought I loved you then. - Brad Paisley
42: I loved her first... - Heartland | Still Daddy's little girl, even after all these years.
43: A mother's love is enduring, everlasting... unforgettable. | Unforgettable, in every way...
45: J | & | C
46: "Believe in happily ever after, and it will come true"
