Our Wedding


Friends showed up with cameras and good wishes to watch Chuck and I get married. It was a sunny day but a chilly 59 degrees when we started the I do's, just a few short minutes later when we left.... the temp on the bank time and temp sign said 49! It dropped right after the ceremony! All of these photos were taken by my good friend Ed Tiley of Apalachicola, FL. Thanks Ed!

Getting married is so much fun!

January 1st, 2010 at 3 PM Chuck and I said the I do's! The ceremony was short and sweet and as follows word for word:

Mesa: (the daughter of very good friends and notary public): We have all come together to celebrate the joy and love that Geri and Chuck share.

Geri to Chuck: You are my best friend and the love of my life. I promise to cherish you, to respect you, to love you for the rest of our days together.

Chuck to Geri: Ditto

Mesa: Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter for the othe
Now you will feel no cold, for each of you is warmth for the other

Now there will be no more loneliness, for each of you will be companion for the other.
Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before you.
May beauty surround you both in the journey ahead and through all the years.
May happiness be your companion and your days together be good and long upon the
Chuck, do you take Geri as your loving wife?
Chuck: I do
Geri, do you take Chuck as your loving husband?
Geri: I do

Mesa: I now pronounce you husband and wife. Chuck you may kiss your beautiful bride.
