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."

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. Image: SunFirePhotoPlus..."Now everyone knows of Blake and Camille's different backgrounds; Blake born and raised outside rural London, Ohio with Camille born in the largest city in Florida. How did he ever get her to live out here? With her open mind to ride 4-wheelers...

Image: SunFirePhotoPlus ...to even shooting a compound bow, Blake found someone who he calls a great friend to himself and others and a true companion with every adventure. 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'."
