Kennedy

My hands got so sweaty. My baby looked so damn sexy standing up there in his white tuxedo. It felt like it was only me and him in the room. He stared me in the eyes letting that sexy ass smile cover his face. He winked at me causing me to blush. I was filled with so much happiness. I can't believe he is mine. My thoughts were interrupted by the sound of Jason's whisper.

"Huh?"

"Arie is waving at you." He said. I looked her way and smiled waving back. When we finally made it down the aisle Jason gave my hand to Eli and took his place behind him. I gave my bouquet to Brianna and took his other hand.

He kissed me on the cheek then looked me in the eyes with a smirk on his face. Just like the day of our wedding there's glistening in his eyes but I won't tell anybody.

His grip tightened on my hands and he mouthed the words 'you look beautiful' to me.

"Kennedy and Elijah, When you first joined hands and hearts in marriage 6 years ago, you did not know where life would take you.

You promised to love, honor and cherish one another through all things. Life has surely brought you both wonderful blessings and difficult challenges over the years.

But here you are today, having fulfilled the vows to love, honor and cherish you each made on your wedding day.  And God is smiling! 

   As you celebrate here today, and as you reflect back over all the years as husband and wife, do you now wish to reaffirm the vows you took 6 years ago?" He asked us. 

"We do." Me and Elijah said.

"Please face each other and join hands.

Elijah, will you continue to have Kennedy as your wife and continue to live in this happy and loving marriage?"

"Hell-i mean I do." Elijah said making us laugh.

"Kennedy, will you continue to have Elijah as your husband and continue to live in this happy and loving marriage?"

"I do." I said.

"Kennedy and Elijah, On your wedding day you exchanged rings as a symbol of the never-ending circle  that symbolizes the eternal quality of  God, unending strength, and unending love!

To remind you of that commitment made on your wedding day, you will now renew your pledge. The rings please.

Princeton came with the rings on a pillow making everyone aw.

"Elijah, please place your gift of a ring on Kennedy's hand with the words, With this ring I renew my pledge of love and commitment."

"With this ring I renew my pledge of love and commitment." He said.

Kennedy, please place your gift of a ring on Elijah's hand with the words, With this ring I renew my pledge of love and commitment."

"With this ring I renew my pledge of love and commitment." I said tearing up.

"Kennedy and Elijah have expressed to me how blessed they have been to enjoy 6 years of marriage.  Their fondest wish is that all of the married couples here today, each of you very special friends or relatives, be a part of this ceremony celebrating love and marriage. We would like all married couples to please rise and stand alongside your spouse.................."
