Thank you!

We want to thank our family and friends for celebrating with us, and for all that you do. You enrich our lives endlessly and we are forever grateful for your sacrifices beyond what words can express.

We feel honored to unite two families, across the oceans and the world, into one. Make new friends, keep the old; one is silver, the other is gold!

We hope that you enjoyed yourselves at our wedding, and we're looking forward to seeing and partying with you again soon!

The Vows

Preston's Vow

Dear Lynne: We are here today because we've made a promise to each other; a promise to support each other through life, through both hard times, and good times, and to go on adventures in twain. It is a promise to go to the unknown with you, on the open road, and seek new envelopes and frontiers to conquer.

"However sheltered the port, and however calm the waters, you shall not anchor there; afoot and lighthearted, take to the open road; healthy, free, the world before us; the long brown path before us leading wherever we choose."*

We make this promise because we've found trust and companionship in each other, with uncommon confidence that we won't fail one another no matter what the challenges may be. I choose you. I know you're the right person because you have been selfless, courageous, and compassionate to me; you embrace my entire person and my interests in your heart; you motivate me to succeed regardless the odds. I now make this vow to you, and it is an unbreakable commitment to honor, respect, and celebrate our kinship. I promise you all this, and I choose to make this vow to you because you're my love, and indeed my greatest adventure.

*Walt Whitman: Song of the Open Road

Lynne's Vow

Preston, I've waited for this moment for a long time. I've known for so long that we were meant to be together, and now we're finally here. I'm the luckiest girl in the world.

I love you and everything about you. You're my muse, my best friend, my partner. No one has ever inspired me the way you do. You are strong, sweet, and fun. I love the way you can think in perspectives other than just your own, how you never give up, and how you make me want to be a better woman.

I promise to be your best friend, your biggest fan, your loudest cheerleader, your strongest support, your voice of reason, and your loving and loyal wife. I promise to be anything you need me to be. Even if the world turns against you, I won't.

I make these promises to you today and I'll keep them forever. For the rest of my life, you will be my one true love, and I will be your wife. I can't wait to see what life holds for us.
