Our entire wedding was filled with awesome moments but my most memorable moment: when the door of the chapel opened, walking down the aisle, and there he was standing, tears in his eyes, becoming my husband after 20 years of being in a relationship. To describe in just a few words what i felt seeing my best friend, my soulmate, I felt the warmth, peace, love, comfort, happiness and being loved.
Secondly when my husband had his speech after the rings.... Emotional, all our guests were in tears.
Highlights of our wedding: seeing our friends and family happy, talking, eating, laughing, dancing, just spending the day with us, knowing they love and support us.

Leon Roper. Let me tell you a story about this wonderful man. We've known each other since I was 14 and 24years later he married us. He was the minister at our church since i was a little girl, but became a dear family friend. You can phone him in the middle of the night, always available. he has been in this family for marriages, funerals, baptisms, you name it.... always there when you need him.
