Wedlock and Load

Two of my good-looking friends got married this weekend and it was wonderful. See? I know, adorable, right?

 And here are the rehearsal pictures.
Wedlock and Load: The Rehearsal
As part of my toast, I read Sonnet 116. I started the verse and people stood up from the crowd and finished it. It was lovely and tear-jerking, and given how great these two are together, I can't think of a more fitting poem to welcome them to their new life:

 "Let me not to the marriage of true minds 
Admit impediments. Love is not love 
Which alters when it alteration finds,
 Or bends with the remover to remove:
 O no! it is an ever-fixed mark 
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
 It is the star to every wandering bark, 
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks 
Within his bending sickle's compass come: 
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
 If this be error and upon me proved,
 I never writ, nor no man ever loved."
