All the invited guests and everyone was there in the church for the Wedding.
Ruth was dressed in a white Formal Sweetheart Long Mermaid Dress. Leandro was wearing a formal suit.
The Priest entered.
The Orchestra played for some time.
The priest started, “Leandro Austin, and Ruth O’Brien. Have you come here to enter into Marriage without coercion, freely and wholeheartedly?”
Leandro & Ruth - I have.
Priest - Are you prepared, as you follow the path of Marriage, to love and honor each other for as long as you both shall live?
Leandro & Ruth - I am.
Priest - Are you prepared to accept children lovingly from God and to bring them up according to the law of Christ and his Church?
Leandro & Ruth - I am
Priest - Since it is your intention to enter into the covenant of Holy Matrimony, join your right hands, and declare your consent before God and his Church.
Leandro - I, Leandro Austin, takes you, Ruth O’Brien, to be my wife. I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.
Ruth - I Ruth O’Brien, takes you Leandro Austin, to be my husband. I promise to be faithful to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love you, and to honor you all the days of my life.
Priest - (To Leandro) You may kiss the bride.
The couples kissed
Seeing the couples kissing, Henzel said to Drake, “Is it her first kiss?”
“Don’t know. What if she got a list.” Drake said.
“Got a long list of ex-lovers, they’ll tell you I’m in Leandro….” Henzel started singing in low voice.
“Shut up….!”, Elizabeth interrupted. “This is a church.”
Drake giggles at Henzel on hearing this.
“It is a gift and a pleasure to share your happiness today and to wish for you both the best that life has to offer. May you achieve success to make life fun, and all of love’s treasures to keep you happy.” The priest wished the couple and left.
Everyone headed back home. The rest of the day was just all the family members talking to each other, and the bride and groom’s photo shoot.
