My husband the DJ, played a surprise song for me called "Venus De Milo" by Prince on the Parade album. I was shocked, because it was not a popular selection, but it was an instrumental and it was beautiful. Rod never told me the entrance song and he asked me to trust him, so I did. I'm glad I did! The Minister went out to the center of the dance floor and waited as Rod placed on the surprise song, then my daughters proceeded to the dance floor with thier silk petals. Rod came to me at the entrance door, placed my arms into his and guided me to the minister. As we walked in, we smiled at our guests. It was PERFECT!!! As we started the ceremony it got really funny.



As Minister Derek was reading the scripture, he asked:"Is there anyone here that doesn't agree with this couple to be united, speak now or forever hold thier peace?" Rod and I both turned to our guests and everyone laughed. One of our friends Glenn yelled back, "Hey, that is not the same man she married last time. He had dreads!" Everyone started laughing, so Rod grabbed Minister Derek and placed him in Rod's place and Rod took Minister Dereks place! THAT WAS SO FUNNY! The whole venue was in tears of laughter on this one.

You guys will have to excuse me about breaking this up into parts. There is is much to share with my girls here at WBC. I am still exhausted!
Part 3 blog is above tomorrow. "The Kiss!"
