The vows of Joyce and Chelle

Introduction

Kristin: For those of you who may not know, four years ago today Chelle and Joyce first met each other. It was pretty much love at first sight; they’ve been together since.

They are registered as domestic partners in the State of California, and two years ago, they flew to Vermont for a civil union. The reception was here at Bay Meadows. Today they legally marry in the State of California, for two people could not possibly be any more committed to each other.


The vows

Kristin: Joyce, will you love Chelle when you are together and when you are apart; when life is peaceful and when it is disordered; in times of happiness and health and when times get rough; in times of leisure and in times of work; will you honor Chelle’s goals and dreams and help her fulfill them?

Joyce: I will.

Kristin: Chelle, will you love Joyce when you are together and when you are apart; when life is peaceful and when it is disordered; in times of happiness and health and when times get rough; in times of leisure and in times of work; will you honor Joyce’s goals and dreams and help her fulfill them?

Chelle: Absolutely!

Kristin: You both exchanged rings two years ago and have grown so much together that you can’t get them off. So, do you both still pledge to be each other’s faithful lover and closest friend?

Joyce and Chelle: We do.

Kristin: I now pronounce you life partners and spouses. You may share a kiss.

Thanks y'all! My favorite part was about how we can't get our rings off 'cause we done got too chubby since being together, LOL!

What a crazy life lately. We were in Montana last week; got married Friday (in the paddock at Bay Meadows, ha); fall semester started yesterday; and we're in the midst of moving to a new apartment (our present place is a flippin' dump). I feel simply exhausted. Wake me up when things settle down!
