Yarg! It Be A Pirate Wedding

Some friends of mine were married last evening under the shade of an Oak tree, garbed in Pirate regalia.

MiniWarrior and other miniPirates ran around stabbing at each other with their plastic swords behind the crowd of matrimonial witnesses while we listened to our friends dedicate their lives to each other.

In short simple words that I can best recall:
"I'm not a poet but I tell you this now, plain and true: From this day forward, your battles become mine and I will fight them with you no matter what they be... I love you and ask you to be my wife."

"I'm not a poet, but I tell you this now, plain and true: Your dreams and wishes become mine and I will work with you to make them come true... I love you and am honored to take you as my husband and be your wife."

It brought tears to my eyes, people. The purity, simplicity, the raw honesty--it touched me.

This is life at its best.

Argh. The Kat be mighty pleased.

Bob-a-roo: I have been to two weddings in the past such years that have been simple...and enjoyed them MUCH more than the expensive excessively planned out weddings.
Good luck with your rennovations!!

i've been to a few weddings but by now i don't remember who married whom at where and when. you have some awesome friends, and not to mention their beautiful vows.
