And they were married :-)

On Saturday, "Marianne" and "Colonel Brandon" were joined together in marriage.
The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. 

SONNET 116 by William Shakespeare

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

P.S. And yes, that sonnet was read at the wedding and couldn't be more applicable. "Looks on tempests and is never shaken..."

to my beautiful dear sister and her new husband.
