Ryan and Missy chose to tie the knot! Rebekah had the pleasure of serving as their wedding officiant at Rockmill Brewery about 25 miles from downtown Columbus Ohio! The wedding venue is located in rural Lancaster, Ohio, and it turns out to be a very nice place for an intimate event! In this first photo you can see Ryan and Missy (happy groom & bride) in the lovely outdoor setting with Rebekah.

Rebekah shared these words during their ceremony, "Ryan and Missy first met more than 10 years ago at Ohio State and quickly became friends.  Ryan was consumed with CAR and working on his thesis and Missy was an R.A., constantly counseling college freshman and keeping them in line."

"Over the years they kept the friendship going, confiding in each other about life’s ups and downs.  Eventually, they began to realize how much they really meant to each other, and their relationship began.  Together they love attending concerts, running, hiking, and dog rescue.  Their love and commitment for one another has grown steadily over the years, and they have become a team, each working to support the other."

"What do we mean by love? When we love, we see things other people do not see. We see beneath the surface, to the qualities which make our beloved special and unique. To see with loving eyes, is to know inner beauty . And to be loved is to be seen, and known, as we are known to no other. One who loves us, gives us a unique gift: a piece of ourselves, but a piece that only they could give us. We who love, can look at each other's life and say, 'I touched his life,' or, 'I touched her life,'...

Groom and Bride, now Husband and wife, Ryan and Missy share a wedding day kissA very special moment for Ryan and Missy on their wedding day at Rockmill Brewery...just as an artist might say, 'I touched this canvas.' 'Those brushstrokes in the comer of this magnificent mural, those are mine. I was a part of this life, and it is a part of me.' Marriage is to belong to each other through a unique and diverse collaboration, like two threads crossing in different directions, yet weaving one tapestry together...

The tender moment of sweethearts, Missy and Ryan at their Lancaster Ohio wedding"I can't imagine anywhere else I'd rather be right now...Let's make these moments last."...To make this relationship work, therefore, takes more than love. It takes trust, to know in your hearts that you want only the best for each other. It takes dedication, to stay open to one another, to learn and grow, even when it is difficult to do so. And it takes faith, to go forward together without knowing what the future holds for you both. While love is our natural state of being, these other qualities are not as easy to come by. Thus, they are not a destination, but a journey. The true art of married life is an inner spiritual journey. It is a mutual enrichment, a give and take between two personalities, a mingling of two endowments which diminishes neither, but enhances both."

The Outdoorsman and the City Girl!

Jean had a wonderful time at Blake and Camille's wedding! She was their officiant at London Country Club just west of Columbus Ohio!

Let's find out as Jean read these touching and somewhat humorous words from their story during their outdoor wedding ceremony!...

Beautiful bride, Camille, poses for this elegant display at London Country Club near Columbus Ohio.

How did he ever get her to live out here? With her open mind to ride 4-wheelers...

And Camille didn't expect Blake to carry her through life's struggles and losses from so early on in their relationship but from it, they were able to build an undeniable trust. Such a trust that Blake didn't remember to pop the question when he got down on one knee!   So Camille had to ask, 'Well are you going to say something?'  And with his continuous smile she had to say 'yes'."

Wonderful Love! John & Janine in Paris

John & Janine's wedding took place this past weekend at Darby House near Columbus, Ohio. They asked me to join them as their officiant, therefore, I had the pleasure of conducting their very unique and profoundly beautiful wedding ceremony.

Near Columbus Ohio, Damian King was wedding officiant at Darby House for John and JanineJohn and Janine in Paris, France. Their wedding was at Darby House near Columbus, Ohio.They chose some words that were extraordinarily meaningful from a book that I have not read, The Alchemist. It is somewhat challenging to describe the love that this couples shares, because it is something that causes me to pause a bit in wonder. It just seems so beautiful to me.

Here are the words they chose, "When he looked into her dark eyes, and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence, he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke – the language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love. Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert. It was the pure Language of the World. It required no explanation, just as the universe needs none as it travels through endless time. What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life, and that, with no need for words, she recognized the same thing. Because when you know the language, it’s easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you, whether it’s in the middle of the desert or in some great city. And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one’s dreams would have no meaning."

Late Summer Wedding - Hong & Servet's Love Shines!

Wedding in Columbus, Ohio! Hong and Servet asked me to be their officiant at Franklin Park Conservatory after I had the honor of marrying their friends at Scioto Reserve! I never get tired of marrying brides and grooms. Each ceremony is different - each relationship, like a fingerprint! The love and energy that each bride brings to her groom, and groom to his bride, is unique. I must say at times it is awe-inspiring, and warms my heart in a way unlike anything else. I believe it also is a reminder of my own marriage, and the love that Jean and I share that continues even through the many challenges we have faced in life for the past 30-plus years. This love relationship that husbands and wives share is one of the great mysteries of our existence. For this reason, it is something to celebrate! Therefore, I want each wedding to feel so special and unique to each couple, so that they will remember their day with the utmost joy.

In this first photo Hong and Servet share some humor, laughter, and smiles!
