We are gathered here today to celebrate one of life’s greatest moments, to give recognition to the worth and beauty of love, and to add our best wishes to the promises that will be made before God which shall unite Krysten Marie Wilson & Joel Vincent Brown in marriage.

Should there be anyone who has cause why this couple should not be united in

The “Giving Away”

Who is it that brings this woman to this man?

Jeff Wilson, father answer

“I do”, “I do on behalf of her Mother & I”

“Thank you Mr & Mrs Wilson. You may all be seated

Reading by Elizabeth

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered. It keeps no record of the wrongs, love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” – Corinthians 13:4-8

Opening Remarks

Joel and Krysten marriage is an affirmation of life, an undying commitment, a spiritual, emotional, and intellectual bond between two people. It is created from the purest of friendship, respect and love. Therefore, the institution of marriage is not to be entered into lightly, because it symbolizes commitment on every level.
Joel & Krysten, together you will continue to meet the challenges and obstacles of life head on. As Marriage is an adventure in the most intimate of human relationships. It is the mutual commitment of two people sincerely in love who share the same dreams about life.

But more than that, it is the intimate sharing of two lives. It is a sharing that does not diminish but enhances the individuality of each partner.

Joel & Krysten your marriage does not mark the beginning of a new relationship; rather, it is an acknowledgment and celebration, of a relationship that has been flourishing since you met and your first date at “Houlihans” on New Years Day some 4 years ago.
Joel and Krysten, love is the longing two people feel for one another. It is the need to share, in body and spirit, the warmth, serenity and peace two people can give to one another. A simple touch, a hand held at a time of uncertainty. This is what it means to be intimately human.
