One more wedding!


In April, my family traveled to Chile to witness Brother's marriage to Luz Maria. The wedding was elegant and moving with a full wedding mass in a lovely adobe church and an all-night fiesta with a full orchestra.

This week, they are in Maine and Brother thought that it would be a good thing to solemnize their marriage in the United States---so guess what? We're going to have a wedding tomorrow!!!

I've only officiated two weddings--I'm not sure how the first turned out because the couple was from out of state, but the second one....well, it didn't really take, shall we say. So, I'm a little nervous about my ability to pronounce anyone man and wife but am willing to give it another shot.

Amity is going to come and translate and any other River Valley Bloggers who are interested in joining us at 7 p.m. Thursday at my house are welcome!

Suggestions and ideas are welcome in e-mail or comments.

Let's hope that this wedding has more luck than your last one. I will say that it wasn't your officiating that doomed the second wedding! You had very kind and fitting words to say.

Good luck in this most romantic of endeavours. What an honour to officiate....you'll do well, I just know it...

Hope all goes well, Remember a .500batting average in baseball is outstanding.

Beth, what an honor for you. I know it will mean so much to your brother and his wife. Have a grand time!

Beth said...

SJ, :-\

Lavinia, It is an honour and I'm looking forward to it.

Carey, yes that's true! I'll use baseball averages to describe my success rate!

Beckie, I do feel that it is an honor, although didn't you like Lavinia's Canadian spelling with a u? I'll post about the wedding tomorrow.

How neat! Hope it goes well. :c)

Interesting family you have and nice that you celebrate special things together. I am going to a family wedding in Mexico in a month.

I didn't know you could do that. What a multi-talented relative I have. I now pronounce you Esposo y Esposa. I think that's right. Pappy

Beth said...

Jayne, thanks, it's very special to share this.

Ruth, Mexico in a month sounds PERFECT to me. I'm not a big fan of November in the north--no leaves, no snow.

Tex, there is no end to my talent.:-o

Beth, I'm certain you will officiate with flair! How lovely - another wedding.

Hoping all is well!

Beth, you did a great job!!
It was a great gift to Chas and Luz Maria. We were impressed (as usual) with your ability to put things to gether and be a great hostess. Your Charlie's poem and song were a great gift, also.
Amity's translation plus her ability to talk to Luz Maria and Ignacio in their native tongue made the cerimony even more special. Their gift of beautiful flowers was very touching.
I was told that to have friends you need to be friendly. Your great circle of wonderful friends speak to your giving of yourself to others.
Love you, Dad
