I've been to a lot of weddings and I still find each and every one fresh and moving. Jac and Dan's wedding ceremony was no exception. Here is an excerpt from the couples friend and wedding officiant Walter Dunbar.
"The word marriage can be broken down to mean "ocean age" or the age of water. Mar or mari in both Latin and Spanish means the sea, the ocean. Words like marina, marines and marsh all share the water root. And age is a period of time. Water has always represented the unknown mystery, the subconscious dream realm. It's mystical and can flow, crash, trickle and splash. And you will be sailing across this uncharted mysterious ocean in your relationship. Although you are both individuals, today's union makes the two one and now you can identify yourself as the ship. Dan and Jac, I want you to imagine what your ship would look like 'cause you're gonna be cruising in it for the rest of your lives. You started out in a friendship, dated in a partnership, but this relationship has been under construction 'til today and it's time to leave harbor and sail into the Mystic. If you always do what is best for the relationship you will enjoy a long voyage--an odyssey. And during storms and rough seas, trust the relationship you built: one person can't row or you'll go in circles. Find the balance. You two are the only people to know how your ship handles. And at times you may want to steer in opposite directions. At times you may have to make sacrifices, but if you sacrifice not as a personal win or loss, but do what is best for the relationship, your ship will never fail you. You will float and ride the waves. You will get past the rough seas and enjoy the sunshine that follows. This voyage is about the journey and not a destination."
Bon Voyage, Jac and Dan!
