Our Wedding

Just a month after Sherry graduated from college, they said "I do."  It was just a sweet and simple affair at Sherry's dad's church with him performing the ceremony.  Sherry did not carry a traditional bouquet.  Instead, she chose to have a dozen individuals (family and friends) who had influenced her life and helped make her who she was hand her a long stemmed white rose as she proceeded down the aisle.  She was so nervous about that walk, but she somehow made it as she kept her eyes on that sweet and loving face waiting for her.  Her friend, April, sang their beautiful wedding song:  "Valentine."  No, the wedding wasn't on Valentine's, but Eddie and Sherry just felt that the words of the song expressed their feelings for one another.

If there were no words
no way to speak
I would still hear you
If there were no tears
no way to feel inside
I'd still feel for you

And even if the sun refused to shine
even if romance ran out of rhyme
you would still have my heart until the end of time
you're all I need, my love, my Valentine.

All of my life
I have been waiting for
all you give to me
you've opened my eyes
and shown me how to love unselfishly

I've dreamed of this a thousand times before
in my dreams I couldn't love you more
I will give you my heart
until the end of time
you're all I need, my love, my Valentine

And even if the sun refused to shine
even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart until the end of time
'cause all I need is you, my Valentine.
You're all I need, my love, my Valentine!

Here are some pictures of our special day (We got married in 2003 before digital photography became popular so these scanned photos do not do our wedding photographer justice.  Our wedding album is exactly what we hoped it would be!):

Don't ask me why my parents looked so happy about "losing" their baby girl!
