What do you get when you combine a surprise party with a wedding ceremony? My sister's wedding.
My sister knew she was getting married, but she thought it would be Monday, October 28th at a courthouse -- she didn't want the pressure and the expense of planning a wedding, not with the new expenses that came with a precious and perfect 7-month-old daughter. So, with the help of my mother, aunt, cousin -- Stephanie, who was studying to be an event planner -- and the groom we pulled off a surprise wedding one day earlier.
Cathy and Ed, you have exchanged vows and rings, and consented to marry in the presence of God and these witnesses.
By the authority vested in me, by the National Association of Christian Ministers I now pronounce you husband and wife.
Ed, it's time to kiss your beautiful Bride!
