Most of all, I remember...Marcus and I decided not to see each other before the ceremony, so the moment when I began walking down the aisle meant so much to me. I had dreamed about it since I was a little girl, and then, that moment had finally arrived and the perfect person for me was waiting at the end of aisle! It made the whole experience so emotional for me.

When the ceremony was over, we quickly got into our get away car, and headed to the reception site at the ranch. Before we knew it, it was time for us to walk across the bridge to be announced as “Mr. and Mrs.” I'll never forget this because it was the first time after the ceremony that we were able to see our friends and family and really share our happiness with them. It was kind of a “Yeah, we did it! Now let’s celebrate!” kind of feeling.

Our first dance was to “Kissed You Goodnight” by Gloriana. We had taken dance lessons, but our dance was not choreographed. I remember how awesome Marcus did during the first dance! Now, looking back at the photos, I absolutely adore seeing the faces of our loved ones watching on as we danced. Their faces say it all and they were overcome with joy for us.

But most of all I remember the feeling Marcus and I had being surrounded by so much love and support on our wedding day. It was amazing to look down the candle lit tables and see all the smiling faces so full of love and happiness for us on our wedding day.

Most of all, I remember... Before our wedding ceremony, my bridesmaids and I were tucked away in the church library of Westminster Presbyterian.  My sisters and my mom helped me put on my wedding dress...the women dearest to my heart were preparing me for Mark, my groom.  My mom tied my sash into a bow, just as she has done for me all my life.  Then, all of my bridesmaids, my mom, and I gathered in a circle and they prayed over me.  It was so sweet to hear their hearts poured out before God on my behalf.

Mark and I chose to have communion served during our ceremony.  Communion is our physical reminder of Jesus' sacrifce to reconcile us to the Father.  Communion unites the Body of Christ.  With unity and reconciliation being so central to marriage, we wanted them depicted at our wedding.  Mark and I took communion with our parents and then prayed with them as songs of praise filled the sanctuary and our loved ones took part in communion.  When we finished praying, we turned and watched our family and friends come up to be fed by the Lord's supper.  It was so sweet.  We were really able to embrace the moment.  My heart was overwhelmed by the love of God and the presence of our loved ones.

I will never forget dancing with Mark and my family toward the end of the reception.  We knew the night was coming to an end and we wanted to soak up every last bit of joy together.  We sang to our favorite Motown songs and danced and laughed. I was so happy and so full of love!
