Lacey Schwegler and Eric Prater were very much in love as they tied the knot in a private ceremony on the morning of March 2nd, 2013.  Rev. Jan and her mother really enjoyed meeting the delightful couple and there were hugs all around to congratulate the newlyweds after the ceremony.

During the ceremony, Rev. Jan gave Lacey and Eric advice that would do well for every couple to remember:
Let your love be stronger than your anger.
Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend than to break.
Believe the best of your beloved rather than the worst.
Confide in your partner and ask for help when you need it.

Eric is serving in the armed forces and Lacey will be a student as they make their home near Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM).  We wish them a long and happy life together!

Ji-Lin Wedding

Chengjun Ji and Banjie Lin were married in an intimate ceremony in a private ceremony in the home of Rev. Jan Carter.  In attendance were the bride’s parents and the mother of the officiant.  The radiant couple said “yes” and nodded their heads enthusiastically several times during their vows as Rev. Jan asked whether they took each other to live together in marriage, to love, comfort, honor, and keep one other for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, forsaking all others and to be faithful to each other for as long as they both shall live.  The ceremony ended with the reading, I Ching, which says:

When two people are at one in their inmost hearts,
they shatter even the strength of iron or bronze.
And when two people understand each other in their inmost hearts,
their words are sweet and strong, like the fragrance of orchids.

The newlywed couple will make their home in Seattle while attending college.

Arizona Couple Marry on The Seattle Wheel

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Quinn and Steph had a spectacular setting for their wedding as they were married at sunset on The Seattle Wheel. The day was a beautiful, crisp, sunny day and the view from The Wheel, as we rose up above the water, was impressive as the tall buildings in downtown Seattle rose to the East of us and Puget Sound stretched out as far as we could see to the West! We took a few minutes to look at the view and take pictures, then had a beautiful wedding ceremony while we circled three times to the setting sun. After Rev. Jan talked about love and relationships, the couple said their own, heartfelt vows to one another as tears of joy flowed. A double ring ceremony followed and their vows were then sealed with a kiss. As the newlyweds alighted from the cabin of The Wheel, the crowd clapped and cheered for the happy couple. We wish Quinn and Steph every happiness as they make their home in Arizona!
