Love doesn't know nationalities

Every one of us has a love story. THIS love story, this is YOUR love story.  You were both ready and open to finding your soulmate.  Bride, you had a plan, a written list to help you think about and bring about your future.  Once you actually connected, there really was very little work to be done. But just to be sure, when Groom came to pick you up that first time, the two of you got that last first kiss in – because if there wasn’t magic in that kiss, why invest time in getting to know one another? Each of you recognized the potential and love from the start. 

Two year ago you had lunch here, at The Sandbar, and later, dancing at the tiki bar.  There you met a couple celebrating their 54th wedding anniversary – and loved the look they gave y’all as you explained you too were celebrating an anniversary – a three WEEK anniversary.  Already the two of you were planning your future together, including looking at rings that same day!

Name and Name, you have taken into your care and keeping the happiness of the one person in the world you love best. You have added to your life not only the affection of each other, but also the companionship and blessing of a deep trust. You have agreed to share strength, responsibilities, and love.

Real love is something beyond the warmth and glow or the excitement and romance, of being deeply in love. It is caring as much or more about the welfare and happiness of your partner as about your own. Real love is not total absorption in each other; it is looking outward in the same direction together.  Love makes burdens lighter because you divide them. It makes joys more intense because you share them. It makes you stronger so you can be involved with life in ways you dare not risk alone.
