"Leap Day Weddings 2008"
My first wedding today was for a co-worker of mine. She & her fiance are planning "the big wedding" for later in the summer, & I will also officiate there. But for personal reasons, they needed to be OFFICIALLY married as soon as possible. The spot they chose was waterfront in Historic Old New Castle, & the view was beautiful! It was certainly blustery & a little chilly, but not as bad as it could have been. So with both sets of parents as witnesses, I performed a basic, civil ceremony for the couple. There were smiles all around & lots of laughter when a flock of seagulls overhead "christened" the groom.
The second wedding took place just an hour later, at the home of a sweet young couple. They went all-out for decorating - including an "altar" with votive candles, the archway draped with tulle, a spotlight for the bride & groom, & of course lots of rose petals. The guests included about 20 close friends & family members. I don't think there was one second that the young groom didn't have a smile from ear to ear. They chose one of my standard ceremonies, but customized it ever so slightly with their own vows:
"In you I’ve found someone not only to share my love with, but also to share my life with. I am at my best with you, because you accept the worst in me. Our commonalities brought us together, but our differences brought us even closer. I will not ask you to change, for that would mean changing the love of my life. With this ring, I ask you to be my wife/husband...The person I share every exciting adventure with. The person I begin and end every journey with."
