Our wedding was at the Northeast Wedding Chapel in Hurst, TX. It was wonderful! We honeymooned at a Bed and Breakfast in Ft. Worth and it was not wonderful, to say the least.
We had a wonderful guitarist! He learned songs just for me! I highly recommend him. You can watch the flower girls and listen to our guitarist:
These were our vows that we made to each other. We take them very seriously and mean every word. I feel that many people today say that they will love each other forever but when it comes down to it, they really mean that they will love each other as long as they feel like it. That is terrible. God loves us always even when we are evil. I love Felipe and Felipe loves me even when we don't feel like it because we remember God's love for us!
Felipe to Lauren
I love you, and I know that God is the author of life and love and every good thing, and because of that I desire to be your one and only husband. Together with you I want to be vessels for His love so that through our marriage and our oneness Christ would be glorified. Despite the pressures of the present and whatever the future might bring, I promise to be faithful, to love, to lead, to serve, and to protect you as Christ does His Church, as long as we both have life. For God’s perfect love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. According to the grace of God, I promise to endeavor to show to you the same kind of love as Christ showed the Church when He died for her, and to love you as part of myself because, today, in His sight, we are one.
Lauren to Felipe
Through your friendship I have been drawn closer to God; And I have found that friend that sticks closer than a brother. As Christ loves the Church, I have felt your love toward me, and as the Church is called to follow Christ I vow to follow you, to love you, to honor you, to respect you, to submit to you, to cherish you, to serve you, to put your needs before mine, to make our home a place you desire to be, to remain faithful and never wander in thought or action from your loving embrace. Together I hope to model the love God has for his children when he sent his son to save us and draw us back to his loving embrace. I believe we glorify God more as a single unit than we do as individuals and this is why I choose to marry you. And as long as we are living, I will be your wife and through the grace of God find my satisfaction in you. I love you.
Our photographer made an album for us and these are the files from that. Enjoy!
Felipe is so handsome!
My beautiful bridesmaids!
The journey of our flower girls! The ring-bearer is Felipe's cousin and brother to the flower girls.
Maybe I'll post more pictures from the album in the future. It takes forever for the pics to load...well, like one minute each, not FOREVER!
