May 4, 2016 Brian & Michelle Britton
Lisa: "Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life. . . . You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore."
Michelle: I promise to be true to you, to uplift & to support you, to frustrate and challenge you, and to share with you the beautiful moments of life. Someday, if the stars align, I might even let you win an argument. Let us do good and be good to each other. "Do you wanna come with me? 'Cause if you do, then I should warn you — you're gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: the trip of a lifetime!"
Brian: From the moment our paths crossed you have surprised me, distracted me, captivated me and challenged me in a way that no human being ever has. I’ve fallen in love with you again and again, countless times, without reservation, and I still can’t believe that today I get to marry my best friend.
Lisa: Then if you'll both have, and if you'll both hold, From now until the stars grow cold, And if you'll love through good and bad, And whether you're happy or sad, And love in sickness, and in health, And when you're poor, and when in wealth, And if you'll love with all your heart, From now until death do you part, And if you'll love each other through and through, Please answer with these words: I DO!
Michelle: I DO!
Brian: I DO!
Lisa: THEY DO! ... YAHOO!
We need to continue with a few more things, So let’s proceed-
May I have the rings?
Groom- place this ring on Bride’s finger
And repeat after me: To you my dear, I give this ring, for it is special, not just bling,
wear it proud, as you have vowed, for you are mine, til the end of time. (put ring on brides finger)
Bride- place this ring on Groom’s finger And repeat after me:
To you my love, I give this ring, For it's your sweet love, that makes me sing, And now I give my heart so true, For the rest of my life, to be with you. (put ring on grooms finger)
One last thing before you go, I really want you both to know: I wish you a life full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer, And a love that grows deeper year after year! Now I, by the authority vested in me,
Declare that husband and wife you shall be! You're married now! So kiss the bride, But please, do keep it dignified!
