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, โ€œLeandro Austin, and Ruth Oโ€™Brien. Have you come here to enter into Marriage without coercion, freely and wholeheartedly?โ€

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 Oโ€™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 Oโ€™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, โ€œIs it her first kiss?โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t know. What if she got a list.โ€ Drake said.

โ€œGot a long list of ex-lovers, theyโ€™ll tell you Iโ€™m in Leandroโ€ฆ.โ€ Henzel started singing in low voice.

โ€œShut upโ€ฆ.!โ€, Elizabeth interrupted. โ€œThis is a church.โ€

Drake giggles at Henzel on hearing this.

โ€œIt 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 loveโ€™s treasures to keep you happy.โ€ 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 groomโ€™s photo shoot.
