Perfect extravagance your wedding day,
There, anticipation gathered around.
Petals strewn to decorate, true love found.
The path to tomorrows before you lay…
You walk today joyfully, unafraid
Your love, of many years has made two strong.
Together you can face one or a throng.
Beautiful bride thy virtue walks arrayed.
Upon forever, hopes and dreams are laid.
The “Wedding March” has sung to you today.
Your groom waits, loves light shall forever stay.
Blessed be the oaths, promises this day made.
