So after college, my friend Kate got married and I was a bridesmaid…along with several other girls, including her sister Fran. We love to call her Frannie, though, because it fits. (And sometimes annoys her.)
Frannie met Tim and her whole life plan changed. Gone were the thoughts of staying single forever. Tim and Fran fell in love and we couldn’t be happier.
Especially me! Because Frannie asked me to be her officiant! Oh, how I enjoyed joining Kate with our silly, singsong chant: “Frannie’s getting married, Frannie’s getting married…”
And indeed, Frannie got married in a simple, beautiful ceremony held at the clubhouse in her parent’s neighborhood on March 30th, 2019. And this time, neither of us was the bridesmaid. ❤
Congratulations Frannie and Tim!
Jess and Danny have such a great relationship. They are both smart, funny, quirky, and love to laugh. Jess has two children from a previous marriage. Danny came into their lives and loves them all in such an amazing way.
When they asked me to marry them, of course I said yes! I love having a chance to marry folks who are also my friends. And I wanted to include the kids, which was perfect for Jess and Danny.
Me: Angie, Jay, will you promise to care for everybody in this family? That means being patient and kind, even when you may not feel like it.
Angie: (quietly nods.)
Jay: Do I have to?
Jay: I’ll try.
And there you have it, folks. Sometimes “I’ll try” is the most honest and appropriate answer 🙂
Jess and Danny, I’m honored to pronounce you as husband and wife. And call you our friends!
