Jeff & Justin – Married in Edmonton

Jeff & Justin – Married in Edmonton
December 16, 2011 Haley Shandro

Jeff & Justin are adorable. They are so in love, and every time I spend time with them I have a big smile on my face. They were married at Robertson-Wesley United Church, and their pastor made a lovely speech about how proud he was to be a part of a gay marriage held in the church, and how happy he was that the United Church sees fit to celebrate all love and unity. We couldn’t agree more.

I hope they don’t mind me sharing something beautiful that they wrote about their wedding:

“We take exception to the fact that this day is all about us. Unlike countless other gay men, we have been graced by the unconditional love, support and acceptance of you, our friends and family. As individuals, you encouraged us to be true to ourselves and stood by us through this sometimes painful journey of self-discovery. You insisted that we learn to love ourselves. You have continued to nourish the loving relationship we have formed with enthusiastic acceptance. Without your love and support, we would not be half the men we are today. And so, you see, this day is actually all about you.
Love, Justin and Jeffrey :)”

Justin is such a doll, he had a minor button crisis while getting ready but my sewing skills came in handy. He was pretty nervous prior to the ceremony, which only showed how much he loves Jeff.

Jeff has connections with the military and also the RCMP so there were quite a lot of uniforms at the ceremony.  This was our first Arch of Swords!
