All You Need is Love: The Ceremony- part 2

Read the past recaps by clicking on the "wedding" tab at the top.

Announcement of Marriage
Before God and in the presence of this community, Matthew and Jessica have made their solemn vows to each other. They have confirmed their promises by the joining of hands and by the giving and receiving of rings. Therefore, I proclaim, as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, that they are now husband and wife.
Those whom God has joined together, let no one separate.

Charge to the Couple
As Christ's own, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, and patience, forgiving each other, as the Lord has forgiven you, and crown all these things with love, which bind everything together in perfect harmony.

The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord be kind and gracious to you. The Lord look upon you with favor and give you peace.
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

You may now kiss your bride.

Side note- I love MOH Mary's face in this picture

And the navigation of the stairs

Yay! We're married!

At this point, Matt & I head back to the bridal suite where the wedding party and our families meet us. There is much hugging and I'm just trying to breathe and understand what just happened. We wait a few minutes for the sanctuary to clear out, and then the family pictures-- that's next!
