Michael and Andrea, the musicians for our Wedding, wrote a song just for us. They sang it as I walked down the aisle with my Dad. Here are the words:

"This Day I Marry My Best Friend"

Here I am, I pledge my love for the rest of my life,
Only you, my gift from God above, a precious wife.
Take my hand, here's my heart, all I want is you.

Here I am, I give myself to you on this day,
Only you, you're the answer to my prayers and I say
Take my hand, here's my heart, all I want is you.

You complete me, your love frees me,
You and I, we can fly.
How I love you, how I need you,
Thank you Jesus, for our lives.
This day I marry my best friend!

Here we are, joined together this day, two hearts now one.
Just we two, blessed by God above, our lives have just begun.
Take my hand, here's my heart, all I want is you.

The Minister at our Wedding was Pastor Fred Mortensen of Shepherd's Promise Church.

Here are the Wedding Vows that we shared:

When I look into your eyes, I see the love you have for me.
When I hold your hand I feel your reassurance.
When you hold me, I feel warm and safe.
You are my soul mate, the one God has made especially for me.
You are my friend, the one who holds me up when I am falling.
You are my true love, the one I am to spend the rest of my life with.
From the moment I first met you, I knew you were special.
A beautiful rose amongst a field of weeds.
For you, my love, I will do anything.
I will always have a hug and a kiss for you.
My hand will always be there for you to hold.
I will always be there for you when you need a good listener.
I will forever love and respect you and honor your feelings.
I love you.

Khris, my love, I wish to tell you all that is in my heart
as I contemplate our love. You are my dream come true.
When I was a little girl, I dreamed of a wonderful husband,
but I never dreamed it could be as good as this.
You are unselfish, gentle, loyal, considerate, tender,
giving, honest, passionate, and best of all, you are real.
This is no longer a childhood fantasy!
I cannot thank you enough for loving me.
You have always been there for me.
I am so blessed to have you as my best friend and soul mate.
I promise you a devoted heart and a love that is ever true and ever growing.
I will stand in front of you, sheltering you from the winds of adversity,
behind you, supporting your dreams, and beside you as your best friend.
I will respect and cherish you completely and forevermore.

After our Vows, we exchanged rings with these words:

As this ring encircles your finger,
From this day forward, year in and year out,
So will my love forever encircle you.
Wear this ring as a symbol of my love.

As we lit the Unity Candles, Michael and Andrea sang
"From This Moment" by Shania Twain.

Our first kiss as Mr. and Mrs. Khristopher Cox!
