License to Wed - UPDATE!

Well folks, it is official. I have joined together two lovely people in holy matrimony. Friday night, I performed my first wedding as an ordained minister, and I am thrilled to say that my first experience presiding over a wedding couldn’t have involved a more charming young couple. Trista and Nathan gave me no doubts whatsoever as to their love for each other and it was truly an honor to be able to be a part of their special day. The moment they finished their vows and it was my turn to say “Husband and Wife”, the look of sheer joy on each of their faces was the most heartwarming thing I’ve witnessed in quite some time.

This morning I trotted myself straight over to the courthouse and filed the papers personally. As soon as the photographer sends me some pictures, I’ll post one for you all to see. In the meantime, I’ll be preparing to preside over my step-niece’s wedding in June.

UPDATE!!! Finally got some pictures from the wedding to share with you. Its hard to get pictures when you're the one at the front of the church instead of at the back!(not the best shot, but here I am leading them in their vows)

Congratulations, Trista and Nathan!(me with the blushing bride after the ceremony)

Thanks, everyone! The next one is in the works right now. My step-niece will be having me perform her ceremony in June. Talk about pressure!

Mary - thanks for stopping by! I'm glad you enjoy what I am doing here. Hope to see you around more often!
