An Easter Morning Wedding for Teresa and Glen

Teresa and Glen wanted a small family wedding in their home on Easter morning.  And since I wasn't serving a congregation I was delighted to celebrate their love with them.  After all, this day is about the renewal of love.  And I was so glad I did.  I'd never met Glen and Tersesa before.  Teresa and I had planned totally on the phone.  I felt I knew Teresa though since she has such a friendly engaging way.  And when I arrived they made me feel right at home.
Tyler, Teresa's 11 year old son, was their ring bearer and he is the only really important person not in these pictures.  They and their friends were easy going, playful and sweet.  And they had baskets for and Easter Egg Hunt after the ceremony for the children in attendance. 

We used this wonderful edited quote from 'Corelli's Mandolin' in their ceremony:  '“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.  Because this is what love is.  Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. … Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident… "

I had a lovely time and felt blessed to be with them and their family and friends of Easter.
I send them much love.
