It was the perfect Thursday night for Shayna and Rich to get married. There was no grand wedding reception on this night, but pizza and wings after they said their vows. The "wedding" will come for them next year.
You see, there's a difference between a wedding and a marriage. And while both are beautiful, this night was to meant to exchange their vows in front of a few family members and legally begin their married life. This night was meant for marriage.
It was beautiful, something out of a fairy tale as far as settings go. The temperature had cooled slightly, and the setting sun was giving off the most beautiful glow.
There was nothing that could dim their emotions, the sheer joy they felt. They looked at each other as if they were the only people on the planet. It didn't matter to them that the ceremony was only a few minutes long - they enjoyed every single second.
Shay and Rich, we are so glad we could be there for this moment. And we can't wait to share your celebration with you next year. Thank you for a beautiful evening, and congratulations.
