Bobbi and Jean have officially been partners since their commitment ceremony 15 years ago. On June 15, 2013, they were thrilled to finally be able to be legally married! As they said their vows to one another, the guests could sense their joy and happiness as tears sparkled in their eyes and emotions made it hard to speak.

They were married in a beautiful outdoor wedding at the SimpliDone Gardens in Sammamish, Washington. Bobbi was resplendent in a long, crimson gown with gold detailing and a long train. Jean was attired in a coordinated ensemble consisting of a black shirt and suit with a maroon vest, tie, and pocket handkerchief. Bobbi’s two daughters and her four-year-old granddaughter attended, as did Jean’s father and cousin, and several friends and neighbors.

They had a beautiful ceremony, including a purification ceremony to wash away any past transgressions and a Unity Candle ceremony to symbolically join their lives together as the following words were said, “These candles represent the glow of spirit dwelling within each of us. Today Bobbi and Jean join their twin flames to kindle a single fire of passion and enlightenment, for their union and for all the world.” The ceremony ended with the Benediction of the Apaches.

We wish Bobbi and Jean many more years of love and happiness together!
