Patterson – Reynolds Wedding

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Joan and Tammy were married in a private ceremony in the living room of Joan’s parents on January 18th, 2013 at 12:00 noon.  As Joan’s mother walked her down the aisle, everyone present started crying tears of happiness and joy.  After we all had a chance to dry our tears, a beautiful ten-minute ceremony joined Joan and Tammy in matrimony.  It was a touching and intimate ceremony, celebrating the love and commitment that Joan and Tammy have had for each other for nine years.  Both brides were radiant – Joan in a beautiful rose kimono jacket and Tammy in a vibrant red shawl.  We wish them many years of love and happiness together as they make their home in New York.

Once in a Lifetime Date for Dryden-Morgan Wedding

Cyndi and Holly selected the lucky date, 12/12/12, for their wedding.  Just as this is the only time in our lifetime that any of us will see this date (it won’t be around for another hundred years), Cyndi and Holly had to wait almost a lifetime to get married.  They have been partners for thirty years and never thought they would see this day.  They have raised a child together and also have a grandchild.  Those thirty years have been filled with love and devotion to one another and they were finally able to realize their dream of getting married!

The wedding was a simple, private affair held in the home of Rev. Jan Carter.  Two of their neighbors came as witnesses and Rev. Jan’s mother was also in attendance.  There was much laughing and celebrating.

The ceremony was the most touching and memorable wedding that Rev. Jan has performed.  The joy was overwhelming as Cyndi and Holly were finally able to become wife and wife.  As the poem that was read during their ceremony said:

This day gives me a chance
to thank you for the miracle of you.
You are, and always will be,
the love of my life.

Colorado Couple Wed in Christmas Eve Ceremony

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Will and Ron were wed in a Christmas Eve ceremony in their living room which was elaborately decorated for Christmas and the wedding. In attendance were their two long-time friends from Seattle, their niece and nephew from Colorado, and the cat, which was dressed in her own wedding gown! LOL

Everyone was dressed in blue, but the ceremony was anything but blue!  This was a very joyous occasion, the culmination of a long road to get here.  Just before the passage of R74 for same-sex marriage in Washington State, Will and Ron moved from Colorado to Seattle, where they have found greater acceptance for gay couples. With each other, they have found love, acceptance, and a new life in their new home in Washington.

They were very involved in creating the ceremony with Rev. Jan that would truly reflect their journey and the love and commitment they have for one another.  The wedding was very heartfelt and emotional as they were finally able to marry each other after a seven year relationship.  There were tears of happiness and joy, especially as we listened to the eight songs that were selected to be part of the ceremony.
