Being a wedding officiant is just about the most perfect vocation anyone could ask for. I absolutely love spending time with people who are so positive about the future, so full of hope and love. Joy, happiness and excitement surrounds them in a cloud of deliciousness!!!
One of my daughters says there is nothing that she loves more than a love story and encourages her friends to share their stories. My first favourite book ( I read it over and over) was Erich Segal’s “Love Story”. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
The first thing I want to hear from a couple is their story. I want to know how they met and how long they have been together. It is that connection that is the foundation of the new life they are building.
It’s wonderful to hear about their plans for the future and the many things they have in common. I often wonder what is the most important element of a relationship? Is it sharing hobbies, professions, physical attraction, values, culture, religion, politics, family values? Somehow it is a little bit of everything. A couple may seem like total opposites until there is a bit more excavating and you find that at the core they are so similar.
What do you think? Will you share your love story with me?
