Witnessing a Marriage

To be honest with you, I didn’t think that I was going to cry at my sister’s wedding. I’ve known for months and months that I was going to be the witness to this marriage. I’ve known Steve, my sister’s husband, for 8 years. I know their relationship. I’ve seen them work together, and laugh together. I was excited for their engagement. I was excited for their wedding. But I didn’t think I would actually cry.

Well, I did cry.

After sitting with my sister before the wedding, walking her to the chapel, and entering before her, I cried when she was escorted into the Chapel. And I cried when they exchanged their marriage vows.

There is something sacred about marriage, even when you know exactly what you’re getting into. That’s what this has taught me. It’s always going to be emotional. It’s always going to be beautiful. I knew what I was getting into, but I was still hit by the love that filled the room this past Thursday.
