Handmade Amor: Ceremony (Part 1)

At the end of my last post, our Officiant and dear friend Paul welcomed our freinds and family to our wedding ceremony, after that, he proceeded like this:

"I remember several year a go my wife, Candace befriending Joy, a young Chilean lady, who quickly became a friend of our entire family. Shortly thereafter, we meet Ken and eventually Candace would tease Joy about marriage, she would say "NO, NO, no (with an accent)" ... WELL HERE WE ARE! "

"... And what an awesome time this is, these are the type of moments that make life beautiful, we thank God for times as this, for the opportunity to celebrate this day and make memories.

To proclaim vows among this circle of your closest friends, family and loved ones is very powerful, because you both are giving your solemn promise to each other. That you will love - honor - cherish - respect - esteem - and always endeavor to understand and meet your loved ones'needs above your own."

Paul continued: At this time I would like to introduce the father of the Groom, Kevin. He would be sharing the reading "I like you" by Sandol Stoddard Warburg.

My FIL Kevin, didn't really like the attention, but he did an amazing job and not only made us really emotional but also made us laugh a lot =]

I LIKE YOU -  { We did only a fragment with our favorite parts}

I like you, and I know why.
I like you because you are a good person to like.

I like you because
when I tell you something special
you know it’s special and you remember it
a long, long time.
You say: Remember when you told me
something special?
And both of us remember.

When I think something is important,
you think it’s important too.

When I say something funny, you laugh.
I think I’m funny and you think I’m funny too.

I like you because
You know where I’m ticklish and you don’t tickle me there
Except just a little tiny bit sometimes,
But if you do I know where to tickle you too.

You know how to be silly
that’s why I like you
Boys are you ever silly
I never met anybody sillier than me till I met you.

I like you because
you know when it’s time to stop being silly
Maybe day after tomorrow,
Maybe never.

If I pretend I’m drowning
You pretend you are saving me
If I am getting ready to pop a paper bag
Then you are getting ready to jump
That’s because you really like me
You really like me?
Don’t you.
And I really like you back, and you like me back
And I like you back.
And that’s the way we keep on going
Every day

I like you because if I am mad at you,
Then you are mad at me too.
It’s awful when the other person isn’t.
They are so nice and hoo-hoo and you could just about punch them in the nose.

If you find two four-leaf clovers, you give me one.
If I find four, I give you two.
If we only find three, we keep on looking.
Sometimes we have good luck, and sometimes we don’t.

I like you because
I don’t know why, but everything that happens
is nicer with you.

I can’t remember when I didn’t like you.
It must have been lonesome then.

I like you because, because, because…
I forget why I like you,
But I do.

Why do I like you?
So many reasons.

I guess I just like you, because I like you.

{by Sandol Stoddard Warburg }

After the reading Paul let everyone know that the ceremony was being broadcasted online to all my family in Chile and Southamerica.

"La biblia declara que el cielo refleja la gloria de Dios, y en este dia tan especial tanto en Chile como aca estamos compartiendo el mismo cielo, y sabemos que Dios esta en todas partes"

"The Bible declares that the sky reflects the glory of God and the canopy of sky above us today is shared with all of Joy's family in Chile. And we know that God is everywhere"

Paul continued:

KEN, Jesus said "that a man is to leave his mother and father and the two are to become one flesh"Cherish and care for her as your own body, because you two are now one.

JOY, Jesus also said that as Ken's wife you are to respect and manage the home when encourage him and simply love him thru the difficult times, you will always hold his heat.

BOTH  OF YOU, put each other's feelings above your own and your marriage will be success and your love for one another will flourish!

I just love to remember every little detail and I am so glad Paul gave me the copy of our ceremony in the folder I made for him. So we can always have that and I am thinking of making it a scrapbook =] I think it would be nice, stay tunned, next up Our Vows!

Handmade Amor: The turn of the Bride!

And finally is my turn to talk down the aisle! I am so happy and proud my Mom got to come to California all the way from Chile to give me away to Mr. Poodle. Right before we walked in to out chapel I was super nervous, but once my pretty handmade veil flew away because of the wind, we had a good laugh and relaxed all over again =]

I think this is the only picture I have of my with my veil still on hehe. The music started right when we were getting closer to the entry, "Desde que te vi" from Natalino, the translation is "Ever since I saw you" witch describe perfectly the way I feel about Mr. Poodle =]

You can see in the background my veil going to the bushes =[

Now we are ready to enter !

Once we reached the Altar our Minister and very good friend Paul asked "Quien entrega a Joy en Matrimonio" - Who gives Joy to be married - witch caught me totally by surprised, I had no idea he added more Spanish to make things easier for my Mom =]

That was when my Mom handed me to Mr. Poodle, he thanked her and we both kissed her =]

My friend Connie and Mom traveled all the way from chile to witness our wedding.

Paul continued:

" In behalf of the Bride and Groom, Thank you for sharing in this very special day ... "

Handmade Amor: We are ready to start!

All of our guest were in our chapel, mr. Poodle and the groomsman were on their way there and I got to spend some alone time with Momma Poodle right before the ceremony. I was so excited I could not stop smiling. Then I saw my Mom's beautiful eyes, she was glowing like I never saw her before, her little pick checks hold such a huge smile. While telling me how happy she was to be the one to walk me down the aisle. And I could have not being happier to hold her arm, she hugged me so tight and whisper in my ear how even though I was going to be a married woman, I will always be her little girl. Our eyes water, but this time out of happiness =]

We hold hands and walked to our ride, because while we were talking the groomsman were escorting our super very important woman =]

Mr. Poodle's mom and mayor support in all of our wedding preparations.

With the sound of “Comptine d'Un Autre Été” by Yann Tiersen as the background

Mr. Poodle's Grandmother and owner of the Ranch, our very special venue and here you can see one of Mimis project in action, the little packages of birdseeds!

Now we are ready for the Groomsman to walk in! with one of the first songs Mr. Poodle and I sang at each other looking at the stars, when we started dating =]

And of course Mr. Poodle had to do a little dancing walk going in =]

And my girls are ready to enter!

It was pretty cold and windy, but it did not matter because we are going to get married!

Mr. Poodle waiting for me =]
