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!

Joyful wedding! The confetti flies at New Albany Links!

Wedding officiant, Damian King, near Columbus OH with bride and groom at New Albany LinksI could not resist posting this photo of John and Kim's wedding kiss at New Albany Links near Columbus, OH. I was their officiant and as I said, "you may kiss the bride", large confetti poppers were discharged from both sides!

This photo, taken by a friend of the bride and groom, captured this loving couple in a perfect moment! The effect of the confetti with the shadows is really unique. Nothing is photoshopped here!

John and Kim sent this expressing that they wanted to share it with me. One phrase John used was, "Magical Right?!" I would have to agree. Magical indeed!

Thanks John & Kim, for asking me to share in such a wonderful experience on the day you celebrated your lifetime of love!

Joelle & Jacob at the Vault!

I was the officiant for another fun wedding at the Vault in Columbus Ohio! This indoor ceremony for Joelle and Jacob was filled with joy and meaning. A few words that I was privileged to share are listed below this photograph!

Wedding Officiant in Columbus Ohio, at the Vault, Damian KingDamian King is the wedding officiant in Columbus, Ohio, at the Vault for Joelle and Jacob's celebration!"A relationship grew stronger by the aid of their friends. And blossomed into love, by the support of their families. And that’s when Jacob realized, it wasn’t really fate that brought them together.  It’s been said, that fate is nothing more than the crossing of preparation and opportunity. The day that Joelle met Jacob was the opportunity.  But they had been in preparation for that opportunity their entire lives.  A preparation that came from everyone in this room.  Parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and colleagues."

They also conducted their own Sand Ceremony! Here is the wording they used - "Joelle and Jacob, today you join your separate lives together. The two separate bottles of sand symbolize your separate lives, separate families and separate sets of friends. They represent who you are as an individual. They also represent your lives before today. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one." 

(Sand is poured here) "Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be."

Their sand ceremony was then followed by a special ceremony for their parents! Roses were presented as these words were spoken... 

"This wedding celebration is a joining of two unique families who stood separate until today.  Today we unite these families by the marriage of Joelle and Jacob.  Now as an extension of their love for each other Joelle and Jacob will present a rose to their parents.  They would also like to acknowledge the love and sacrifice that each parent has made to make their children who they are today. The giving of this rose is a symbol of honor, love and gratitude. It says, we value you mom & dad, today and always. Thank you for all you have done. We will always be grateful."

It was a very special day and their family and friends were so glad to be part of such a time of celebration with the ones they love.

Erica & Ben at Whetstone Park of Roses!

Whetstone Park of Roses sits in Columbus, Ohio and is the site of many weddings! As the officiant at the ceremony for Erica & Ben, it was my honor to celebrate with them and to pronounce them husband and wife!

Wedding officiant, Damian King, Columbus OH at Whetstone ParkErica & Ben in Columbus Ohio with wedding officiant, Damian KingThe weather was hot at this outdoor celebration, but family and guests hardly noticed as the attention was focused upon this lovely bride and her groom. The Marriage Readings they selected were "The Art of Marriage" by Wilfred A. Peterson, and "Thoughts in a Garden" by R. Gerhart. As you can tell by their photos, the readings were quite fitting for their special day. Let me share a few of the opening words to "The Art of Marriage" - "A good marriage must be created. In the art of marriage the little things are the big things... It is never being too old to hold hands. It is remembering to say 'I love you' at least once each day." And now an excerpt from "Thoughts in a Garden" as we continue on to the next few images.  

"This is a special place, a place where people have brought beautiful living plants, here to establish them, to nurture and care for them, that they may forever surround us with the beauty we now see.
