Five years ago on January 1st, 2010, I performed a commitment ceremony for Amy and Lynette in my wedding garden. Of course it was not a legal marriage back then but it was a serious commitment nevertheless. (See that post.) Of course I am delighted that the marriage laws in North Carolina were changed in October of 2014 and that Lynette contacted me about doing a legal ceremony this time almost exactly five years to the date of their first ceremony.
The weather was a pleasant temperature but the wind was blowing, the dark clouds were building and the rain was not far behind us.
Amy and their attendants (Betsy and Cee) and I took our places in front of the fence and awaited Lynette's entrance! (Yay, I got to wear my cowboy boots for this wedding!)
Julie, who is like a granddaughter to Lynette and Amy sprinkled some rose petals down the aisle.
Lynette was escorted in by dear friends who are like parents to her.
Everyone was welcomed and a prayer was said. Some words on love and marriage then I asked them their vows.
They put their rings on each other's finger while reading their promises to each other from my book.
And now for the long awaited pronouncement that makes their union legal!
Celebrated with a kiss and some more rose petals!
