Dances from various countries were performed and participated in, a Nigerian band led us in some great music, and everyone ate to their hearts' content. Now when I say everyone, I mean all 500 plus of the guests that attended!
I was happy that I got through the wedding without tears! My voice cracked a wee little bit when I pronounced them husband and wife, but then the place erupted with shouts of joy and applause for at least 3 minutes so I had a moment to gather myself and finish what I saying! It was a beautiful ceremony that was quite reflective of Chris and Hanna, and also honored the place that God holds in their lives.
It was also great fun to have so many from Chris' family and close friends around for the days before and after the wedding as we have known his parents and brother and sister in law for many years.
We wish Chris and Hanna much joy in their marital journey and we are forever grateful that we were chosen to be a part of it all.
