I know you have a lot of pictures that you won that state and to post your social media platforms. You can tweak them later why you're on the dance floor. When I was putting this ceremony together I did a little research. Naturally I Google the phrase definition of marriage as one dives. Everything that came up reinforced. To ideas about marriage that I've always believed one is very practical. And the other sort of mystical. Wikipedia talks about the practical. Marriage is a socially recognized union or contract. Between spouses that establishes rights and obligations between them. OK so great that means that after after today Jeff and Cali will be legally bound as husband and wife. And have a whole slew of state and federal laws that protect that union. They will be contributing to a peaceful and stable world by accepting. Responsibility. For one another. They will be if spam. But the other definition I think. Is more interesting it's more magical. And certainly more romantic. Marriage. The dictionary says. Is the combination or mixture of two elements. It's like some crazy science experiment we're witnessing here today. It's a chemical reaction. This magical alchemy. Takes to individual elements. Fuses them together and creates a new stronger or. And more vital material. Kelly and Jeff. To demand. They made the calculation their lives together will be better. More fulfilled and Richard and could possibly be a part. And that my friends. Isn't the magic of marriage. We should start. By acknowledging each one a view Cali and Jeff's poems are you guys can sit down by the way. It. I forgot to tell you empire. Relax. Okay. Now let me acknowledge. All of you. Cali in jest closest friends and family they had asked you here. Because they love each of you. And you sent back here RS BP card. And you picked out a pretty dress. For the perfect tie and you showed up here in this beautiful space. In the middle of the Georgia autumn because you love them. And simply by coming together with a single purpose by offering our unconditional love and support to Jack in Cali. We as a congregation. Creates. A sacred space. Worthy of this sacred moments. You know I'm always curious how up to people find each other and why they decide to be a couple. I know biology and human desire for companionship. Has a lot to do it. But why did you fall in love with this person enough that one. Yeah I know it's that men mystical alchemy I talked about before but. Given the world's population and the infinite combinations that could result in an actual couple. Why is it these two people app this time. Around each other fell in love. And then decided to marry. Richie and I call. And TB. Meant to be. In the case you see before you. It all started with the tweaked. Doesn't it seeing. Like everything these days starts with a tweaked. So here's how it all went down. Jeff in Cali followed each other on Twitter. There a 140 characters back and forth may be just a little Fuller. Kelly gets Boldin tweets you think we should meet in person. They do. At an event in the safety of a crowd. They flirt some more. And then it just is advised by Jenn hobby just shot it down when calorie. Casually tax something about a boyfriend. Jeff suddenly goes dark. Kelly wonders. Why isn't just phone working. Being over achiever and very persistent Kelly tries a few roundabout ways to get in touch. I'm not exactly sure what that means that her persistence pays off. And Jeff has hooked. They dumped their respective studies. And then they started dating. Well then during an argument at a rest stop in South Carolina just casually brought blurt out don't you know I'm in lovely view. Kelly gets back in the car still mad from the argument and she says to herself. Oh gosh. I'm in love with him to. This is that. So now it's official. Vote. Jeff feels like he has a partner. So he wants to be a partner back. Kelly is happier with Jeff than she ever thought she could be. They challenge each other to be grateful for every single day for the big things. And for the small things. They laugh all the time. And sometimes. Jeff knows Cali is but one. Because one time he happened to mention heard it coming home to me dead makes him happy. Well knowing this Kelly makes them every day. Not because she's a natural meat in it but because as she says. Why wouldn't I spend three minutes a day to make jets. And that's good enough for Jeff he wants to make her happy to. Jeff pops the question. How he says yes. They pick a date picked a venue pick address. Invite lots of friends and asked me to officiate. So I dutifully get ordained online by clicking the 3995. Most popular. Package. At universal life in the streets. I've received my official ministers card a certificate of ordination. And so now I am legally able to guide Jeff and Ali. Through their idea news. And that's how we got here. Anyone of us here who knows Jeff and Kelly well conceived without a doubt that they are soul mates. They are meant to be together and that yes they do make each other hole. Kelly says Jeff. Makes me a better person a better friend that her daughter and a better partner. Jeff tells me that Kelly knows me better than I know myself. She takes care of me when I don't even knowing me it.
