Morning Wedding in the Grape Arbor

When Tim first called he asked if I could just sign their wedding license, they didn’t want a ceremony. When asked why they didn’t want a ceremony he said they did, but they just couldn’t do it all right now.  I told them the price was the same and I could guarantee them a very short simple ceremony but with meaning. I explained that for a marriage to be legal in Washington State it was required that they both had to state that they wanted to be married to the other person and a ceremony would be adding just a few more sentences and it would be more meaningful and special. And I was sure his bride would appreciate it,( girls are like that.)    So this young soldier arrived with his lovely bride Shreypov where they chose to be married on this sunny morning in the Grape Arbor before returning to work at Joint Base Lewis Mc Cord20170726_112417 The ceremony was very short and to the point, but I think they were happier with it than they would have been just signing papers.

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would love to travel to new places, getting ready to do that as a solo traveler. For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and have joined a couple of hiking groups. I'm a reader and love my kindle. I still work some, I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 20 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. The Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that.
