Cheryl and Scott's Amazing Dove Release!

As a wedding officiant in greater Columbus, Ohio, I often have the privilege of experiencing the many ways a bride shows love to her groom, and a groom to his bride. We were at Cheers and Lakeside Chalet in Lancaster. Cherly and Scotts's dove release was an incredible gesture with depth and exquisite meaning that made it truly amazing! Here are the words I shared on their wedding day. "Throughout the ages, the white dove has been an emblem of new beginnings, friendship, love, peace, prosperity, fidelity and true love.  Damian King of Columbus Ohio was happy to be wedding officiant when Cheryl and Scott released their dovesCheryl and Scott's wedding at Cheers Chalet in Lancaster, Ohio. Damian King was wedding officiant.It is said that, the pure white color represents the bride and groom as they begin their life’s journey together in purity and with no regrets of their past.   Doves choose one partner and mate for life, or until death do they part, staying together and remaining true and faithful to each other.  They share a commitment and a love of being home together.  United Marriage Services, wedding officiant Damian King for Cheryl and Scott at Cheers ChaletCheryl and Scott release doves at their wedding at Cheers Chalet, Lancaster Ohio.

It is said that if white doves are seen on your wedding day, a happy home is assured and good fortune will come to all who witness their release.  Their participation in this wedding ceremony makes it very special. Today, as a romantic gesture, and a special heartfelt symbol of their life-long commitment, Cheryl and Scott are going to release two single white doves, sending them skyward, to symbolize their union and the beginning of their life journey together as wife and husband. A wedding ceremony begins a journey of two lives working together for life’s happiness.  The actions of the doves demonstrate this beautifully.

Similarly, a bride and groom do not know what the future holds for them.  Their path may change many times along the way, but with faith and love they will find their way together.  Just as the doves have the instinct to find their way home, Cheryl and Scott will always know where 'home' is, as home is wherever they are together.

These white doves released in celebration today represent all of Cheryl and Scott’s hopes and dreams and their deep commitment to each other.  Just as doves marry for life, so, too, they promise to be faithful, loyal, devoted and true to each other.
As the dov
es fly freely overhead, a perfect pair, we all rejoice in the vows being exchanged here today.  

Cheryl and Scott, we wish for you that your life together will be everlasting, rich, rewarding and full of love!  May your marriage always bring great joy, fidelity, hope and respect."

Holiday Weddings, Often Unforgettable - Dock 580

As a wedding officiant I see marriages all year long and here I was at Dock 580 venue in Columbus, Ohio! Helene and Michael were the bride and groom and they chose a sand ceremony to add meaning and symbolism as two people, and two families, became one! The extra jars of sand were for the groom's children and the completed ceremony demonstrates the union of all the members of this new family, now inseparable!

October wedding! Kristin & Jacob at Darby House

I had the privilege of serving as Jacob and Kristin's officiant on their wedding day last year! Their venue, Darby House, is located just west of Columbus, Ohio, and is a beautiful place for a wedding in any season.

Damian King, officiant at Wedding at Darby House near Columbus, OhioWedding officiant, Damian King, with bride and groom, Kristin and Jacob outside of Columbus Ohio at Darby House.Kristin & Jacob had their first anniversary this October. I was looking thorough some files and saw this great photo taken by Christy Gibson, and it reminded me of their wonderful wedding last year! I am happy to share some of the words that were a part of their special day that I read during their ceremony...

"Jacob and Kristin met at the University of Rochester in 2005 as freshmen in the physics department. Their friendship grew during their first two years on campus, and in October of their junior year, they began dating. They survived the physics department together, and moved on to graduate school, with Kristin residing in Cleveland and Jacob in Columbus. Their relationship endured 2.5 years of Greyhound bus trips and car rides for brief visits. One night when Kristin was visiting Jacob in Columbus, they looked at engagement rings just for fun. One ring stood out to both of them. The next day, when Kristin left to go back to Cleveland, Jacob secretly bought that engagement ring. He planned to hold onto that ring until they were finished with graduate school in a few years and able to live together in the same city. As it turned out, Jacob didn’t feel like waiting that long. One month later, Jacob proposed to Kristin when she was visiting Columbus!"

Happy Anniversary, Kristin & Jacob!

I hope to post more about this beautiful couple as I receive more images.

Thanks, Christy, of Gibson Photographics for the great picture!
