With This Ring, I Thee Wed

The Wedding of Chuck and Denise Bennorth
Saturday, December 27, 2014
Saint Charles, Illinois

We just returned from our honeymoon in Lake Geneva, and before time gets away from us any more than it has, I would like to get these photographs, and our wedding vows into my blog to share with faraway family and friends who could not attend the ceremony in person. We shared our special day via YouTube, and while it was better than nothing, we know that the technology was not perfect. So here are my vows, and a link to Chuck's blog which contains his vows, and his heartfelt words about our marriage, along with some of my favorite pictures from the day, taken by our friend Jim Frazier.

Chuck, I choose you
as my one and only,
my always and forever.

I love who you are, and trust in who you are becoming.
I welcome this opportunity to
unite our families.

Katie, Matt, Denise, Chuck, Zack, Jeanette, Chris, Amy in Illinois
Jamie, Dylan, Sierra, Jason, Bridger, Denise, Chuck in Utah

I love the father you are, and respect the relationship
you have with your sons.

The Bennorths: Matt, Chuck, Zack, and Chris
You are my soft spot to land
when life gets hard.
You are my safe harbor
when the seas of life get stormy.

Your voice and laughter make each day special.
Your love makes me happier.
I will love and honor you,
respect and cherish you.

When trials come,
I will face them with you,
and I will suffer with you.
I will be with you in good times and bad, 
in sickness and in health. 

I will never leave you.
I will share my words, my talents, my belongings, 
my heart, and my love with you. 
Everything I have is now ours.

I won't make you guess my thoughts.
I promise to speak to you with honesty
from a peaceful place, and with love,
to deepen our understanding of each other.
I am yours forever.
