Congratulations to Thomas and Jennifer who were married on Saturday, June 6th, 2009 at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel, in Boston, MA.
The couple celebrated their ceremony in the Library Room with their friends and family. A truly beautiful setting which my amateur photographs really don’t do justice. [from Bride :

The couple had a double ring exchange ceremony which also included a unity candle ceremony. The individual candles were lit by the couples respective mothers, and a memorial candle was honoured for the deceased.
The ceremony was simple, touching and highly emotive. The personal vows celebrated the love and respect that Thomas and Jennifer have for each other as individuals and together as husband and wife.
The reading for the ceremony was an ancient Chinese reading, which is still appropriate today in it’s wisdom.
“The key to love is understanding…
The ability to comprehend not only the spoken word,
but those unspoken gestures, the little things that say so much by themselves.
The key to love is forgiveness…
to accept each others faults and pardon mistakes,
without forgetting, but by always learning and adapting.
The key to love is sharing…
Facing your good fortunes as well as the bad, together;
both conquering problems, forever searching for ways to intensify your happiness.
The key to love is giving…
without thought of return, but with the hope of just a simple smile,
and by giving in but never giving up.
The key to love is respect…
realizing that you are two separate people with different ideas;
that you don’t belong to each other, that you belong with each other, and share a mutual bond.
The key to love is inside us all…
It takes time and patience to fully comprehend all that love can provide;
it is a continual learning process that demands a lot of work…
but the rewards are more than worth the effort…
and that is the key to love.”
Congratulations, Thomas and Jennifer!
