Wedding Ceremony in Bahia

We announced our wedding to the tune of the Veronique Sanson song called “Bahia”, and invited anyone to join us for the wedding ceremony in Bahia, Brazil

As seasons of life come and go            Together Marc and Deanna                  Some family member or friend
The spring equinox does also              Will be travelling to Bahia                     May not be able to attend
It represents new beginnings              Jointly celebrate their union                 But each will be with us in thought
And many joyful happenings              On September Twenty Second              As we reach the goal we have sought
Full of sunshine, hope and flowers    When spring arrives down in Brazil   And under the Brazilian sun
It’s aglow with love and colours         A long-time dream they will fulfill      Our hearts and souls do become one

The wedding ceremony took place right on the beach, at 4:44, just as a new spring was arriving in Bahia, and Marc spoke these few words:

Wedding ceremony in BahiaFrom this day on, I choose you, Deanna, to be my wife
I choose and embrace to live with you and to laugh with you
I choose and embrace to stand by your side and sleep in your arms
I choose and embrace to mirror you with my soul and to share with you all my riches and honors
I promise and vow to be joy to your heart and food for your soul
I promise and vow to bring out the best in you always, and, for you, to be the most that I can
I promise and vow to laugh with you in good times and to struggle with you in bad
I promise and vow to solace you when you are downhearted, to wipe your tears with my hands and to comfort you with my body
I promise and vow, and I choose and embrace, to play with you as much as I can until we grow old; and, still loving each other sweetly and gladly, our lives shall come to an end
