During the ceremony, I couldn’t help but notice these two giggling softly to themselves throughout. It was my thick Southern accent….which was one of the reasons they had chosen me. They were actually hoping I would use a “Southern” wedding ceremony, saying, “I now pronounce ya’ll husband and wife.” I had to giggle too!
Vows were spoken from the heart and they were both overwhelmed. The love they spoke together was as romantic and intimate as could be….and that makes me very happy and content to have been chosen to be a part of this loving ceremony and to bring together two people that genuinely love from the deepest part of their heart and soul.
“You are the answer to every prayer I’ve offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper, and I don’t know how I could have lived without you for as long as I have.” ~ Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook).
As we arrived on the outskirts of Folly Beach, SC on July 15th, I couldn’t help but smile. Huge letters painted on the the old ship before entering town read, “7/15/11 Congrats Ben & Jamie!”
It’s a little bit funny, this feeling inside.
I’m not one of those who can easily hide.
I don’t have much money, but boy if I did,
I’d buy a big house where we both could live.
