We have entered full swing into the wedding season. From mid-May through September I receive numerous requests asking me to perform a wedding. This is a season of excitement, stress and maxed out credit cards! However, beneath it all busy hum is the ongoing declarations of love between two people who long to share their covenant decision with friends and family. So, in honor of the season, here are some great thoughts and quotes about love and marriage…
