We ordered our photobook from Shutterfly and couldn't be any happier. The quality is very good and the papers are thick enough for our guests to write in.

We chose the hard cover and it's 12x12. It's a good size for photobook.

Hey P-Dub Ladies,

It's Sean again...Lishya's husband-to-be (aka FI) and wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank all you ladies for your continued support of our wedding planning efforts as Lishya submits her milestone 10K post on Project Wedding (PW). Congratulations, sweetheart! Very cool. You're an awesome community of cool ladies and it is truly amazing how an online support team can make us feel right at home and guide us through this once in a lifetime experience.  Thank you so very much....

Since my last post, Lishya is now a PW "hostess" and we are having an amazing time planning for our wedding, which is coming up in the next 32 days. I thank God everyday for bringing Lishya into my life and shining her brightlight on me.  Honestly, from the moment that I met her in 2005 I enjoy just looking and adoring all of her and..she often asks me why I'm smiling so often!  Babe love, I'm the luckiest man alive and you're my beautiful wifey-to-be, you're my earth Angel and life partner...I love you endlessly, forever and ever.
 
We're so grateful for our groovy love and life together and we look forward to the future as husband and wife.  Stay tuned for the next 32 days and Lishya's final sign off. 
 
Again, with much appreciation and Aloha. 
Cheers and all the best! 

Sean
aka Lishya's FI

Finally, we chose our favor gift, and it's going to be BOOKMARKS!! It was a hard choice between M&M's or Bookmarks!

It's part of my culture and our guests can always re-use it and remind them of our wedding.

It has Wayang on it and comes in our color too.

III.  Welcome & Greeting to Guests

Out of affection and honor for LISHYA & SEAN, we are here today, before God, to witness their vows, which will unite them in marriage. To this moment they bring their fullness of their hearts as a treasure to share with one another. They bring the spark and spirit which is uniquely their own, and out of which has grown for some time, and will continue to grow, deepen, and strengthen, the precious reality of their life together.

We share joy with them this special day in their lives. This day they affirm and declare each other as life partners in a celebration of love, which will bring empowerment to their life’s path together.

Let us all give our blessing and love to SEAN & LISHYA during this ceremony as they pledge their love to one another. May the wisdom and spirit of all-giving and all-understanding Love pervade the words spoken and the love given here today, that these vows offered will remain strong and true in the presence of love all the days of their lives.

May all of us present feel the strength and depth of SEAN & LISHYA’s love and experience a rebirth of the power of love in our own lives.

To make this relationship work, therefore, takes more than love. It takes trust, to know in your hearts that you want only the best for each other. It takes dedication, to stay open to one another, to learn and grow, even when it is difficult to do so. And it takes faith, to go forward together without knowing what the future holds for you both. While love is our natural state of being, these other qualities are not as easy to come by. They are not a destination, but a journey.

The true art of married life is an inner spiritual journey. It is a mutual enrichment, a give and take between two personalities, a mingling of two endowments, which diminishes neither, but enhances both.

 

IV. Parents’ Consent

This wedding is also a celebration of family. It is the blending of two families that have been separate up to this moment, but united from this day forward -- blending their different traditions, strengthening the family tree. To honor this uniting of the families, SEAN & LISHYA wish to ask their parents’ blessing.

 

(To Bride’s Mom and Dad)

Mr. & Mrs. Limanseto, do you offer this couple your goodwill?  Do you welcome SEAN as a member of your family and give him your love and affection? PARENTS SAY: We do.

 

(To Groom’s Mom and Dad)

Mr. & Mrs. Hashimoto, do you offer this couple your goodwill? Do you welcome LISHYA as a member of your family and giver her your love and affection? PARENTS SAY: We do.

 

V. Personal Vows

 

VI. Vows

SEAN / LISHYA, do you take LISHYA / SEAN to be your wedded wife/husband, to live together after God’s ordinance in the holy estate of matrimony?

Will you love her/him, comfort her/him, forgive her/him, honor and keep her/him, and forsaking all others, keep to LISHYA / SEAN only so long as you both shall live? (“I Do”)

 

(Repeat individually after minister)

I, SEAN / LISHYA, take you, LISHYA / SEAN, to be my wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer and poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish till death do us apart.

 

VII. Rings Exchange

The wedding rings are a symbol of love that is complete and beautiful. May God help you to make your love fulfilling and eternal.

Bless, O God, the giving of these rings that he and she who gives them and wears them may abide in your peace and favor until life’s end.

LISHYA / SEAN, this ring I give you, in token and pledge of our constant faith and abiding love.

 

VIII. Sand Unity

You have committed here today to share the rest of your lives with each other. Today, this relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand: one representing you, SEAN, and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be; and the other representing you, LISHYA, and all that you were, and all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be.

 

IX. Rose Presentation to Mothers

Marriage is a coming together of two lives and a celebration of the love of two people. But it is more. The love that LISHYA & SEAN feel for one another is the flowering of a seed their parents planted in their hearts years ago. As the embrace one another in their love, so do they embrace the families, which have been brought together on this happy occasion. As a sign of their love for their families, LISHYA & SEAN would like to offer these symbols of eternal love, these roses/flowers, to their mothers. These roses/flowers are a promise that no matter how far apart you are, you are not forgotten and a reminder that you are always in their hearts and prayers.

 

X.  Blessing for Bride and Groom

The God of love has established marriage for the welfare and happiness of mankind. His was the plan and only with Him can we work it out with joy. God has said, “It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helpmate for him.”

Now your joys are doubled since the happiness of one is the happiness of the other. Your burdens are now halved since when you share them you divide the load.

Bless this husband. Bless him as provider of nourishment and sustain him in all the pressures of life. May his strength be her protection, his character be her boast and pride, and may he so live that she will find in him the haven for which the heart of a woman truly longs.

Bless this loving wife. Give her a tenderness that will make her great, a deep sense of understanding and a great faith in God. Give her that inner beauty of soul that never fades, that eternal youth that is found in holding fast to the things that never age.

 

XI. Pronouncement / Kiss

You have kissed a thousand times, maybe more. But today the feeling is new. With the blessings and support of your family and friends who are here today, by the authority vested in me by the State of California, and in the name of God, I now pronounce you husband and wife. God bless you!

You may kiss your bride.

 

XII. Introduction of Couple

It is now my pleasure to present SEAN & LISHYA as Husband and Wife!
