Ne-yo: Ok, I woke up in heaven today she kissed me, I floated away, away never felt anything so great all right, now I brace myself for the fight ne-yo: I'm light as a feather tonight because I can't feel the ground, someone let me down I've never felt so high as I do now it's too good to be true I don't deserve you I never felt good love strong enough to stop this world from spinning stop this world from spinning and I see heaven when she looks at me in her smile is the most amazing dream and in her eyes I fall asleep.
Minister's Voice: Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate and witness the marriage of angela and jesse. In planning this glorious occasion, they emphasized to me that this wedding is not solely to solidify their connection, but also to celebrate their deep connection with family and friends. So if you would all please join hands. The circle we form represents an everlasting bond. Like the love Angela and Jesse share, it is a continuum that cannot be broken, not by time, or distance, or even death. We ask god to bless this union now and always. Angela and jesse have asked some of you to read brief passages. We begin with Stuart Chandler.
Stuart: In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of love.
Greg: Love is the emblem of eternity. It confounds all notion of time, effaces all memory of a beginning, and all fear.
Tad: Separated lovers find countless, mysterious way of corresponding. By sending each other the song of birds, the scent of flowers, the laughter of children, the light of the sun, the siing of the wind, the gleam of the stars -- all the beauties of creation.
Frankie: Love is never-ending, nor is it ever begging.
Cassandra: A man is born, a woman is born for him.
Frankie: In the fight to find each other, the perfect moment awaits its destiny.
Cassandra: When they meet, they know.
Frankie: That's why love is never-ending, nor begging.
Cassandra: It is always and forever.
Angie: When Jess -- deep breath. When Jesse and I first got married, we couldn't share the joy that we felt with the people that we loved. And now, as I look out at all of you -- old friends, new friends, my children, the miracle I've been given, my heart is so full it takes my breath away. I want to thank all of you. And I thank you, God.
Jesse: Seeing you here as my beautiful, beautiful bride, hearing that song, even the scent of the flowers -- it just makes me feel alive. I mean, for so long I lived in a kind of silence -- no music, no color, just dark. But I survived it. I survived it, baby. And I couldn't have done it without you.
Jesse: A lot of you people in this room -- you helped me find my way back home to my family and to my angel.
Angie: Jesse, my intentions are the same today as they were when we stood before the justice of the peace all those years ago. I intend to spend the rest of my life loving you. I will grow with you, I will care for you and learn from you. When you speak, I will listen. Maybe not all the time. When you walk, I'll be by your side. Together, we can go anywhere and do anything. You are my profound joy, my greast gift. And I will treasure you always.
Jesse: Oh, God, Angela, my whole world changed when I met you. You opened my mind, my heart. You made me a better man, and because of you, I have life, I have love, and I'm going to protect that love with everything I have. I will make you proud, I will make you happy, and I will keep that beautiful smile on your beautiful face. Oh, my god, you are my purpose, sweet lady. You are my future, and I can't wait to live every minute of that future with you.
Minister: Will you have this woman to be your wedded wife, to live together in a state of matrimony?
Jesse: Are you kidding me?
Minister: Will you love her, comfort her, honor her, keep her in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, keep you only unto her, as long as you both shall live?

Angie: With this ring I thee wed, and with my worldly goods, I thee endow.
