Jake's mother signs the license as a witness.
Thoughtful little touches. I could tell they had been hard at work creating them.
Kensi's mother signs the license as the other witness. She is originally from Honduras.
The arbor awaits as the guests find their places.
Jake and his best man and I take our places up front. I asked the guests sitting in the back to move forward!
Everyone stands for the bride who is preceded by her children: Jorge, Nicole, and Sophia.
And the ceremony begins.
Following a warm welcome to all, we bowed our heads in prayer.
Blessing of the rings.......
They placed their rings on each other's finger.
A closing blessing......
Kensi shed tears throughout the ceremony and I handed Jake a hankie to wipe her tears away from time to time!
The pronouncement of marriage!
Sealed with a kiss!
At last it is done!
I invited the guests to stand and join me in congratulating the newlyweds.
Everyone went back inside to cool off and enjoy the beautiful food! This is the table where the cake will go.
