Flashback to the wedding as we hear the wedding march and Dottie comes down the aisle to stand by Tad!
Thaddeus and Dorothea., have you come here freely and without reservation to give yourselves to each other in marriage?
“We do!"Dottie and Tad answer
Will you love and honor each other as man and wife for the rest of your lives?
“We do!"Dottie and Tad answer
Will you accept children lovingly from God, and bring them up according to the law of Christ and his Church?
“We do!"Dottie and Tad answer giggling a little
Since it is your intention to enter into marriage, join your right hands, and declare your consent before God and his Church.
“Do you Dorothea take Thaddeus James Martin to be your lawfullly wedded husband to have and to hold until death due you part?’asks the priest
I Dottie take you , take you Tad to be my husband, my partner in life and my one true love. I will cherish our union and love you more each day than I did the day before. I will trust you and respect you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad, regardless of the obstacles we may face together. I give you my hand, my heart, and my love, from this day forward for as long as we both shall live.says Dottie"
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, take and wear this ring as sign of my love and faithfulness. This ring I give to you as a token of my love and devotion to you.

I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.says Tad
And now the giving and taking of rings says the priest
“In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, take and wear this ring as sign of my love and faithfulness. “I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness. As I place it on your finger, I commit my heart and soul to you. I ask you to wear this ring as a reminder of the vows we have spoken today, our wedding day.”says Tad putting on Dottie’s ring on her finger
“Lord, bless these rings which we bless in your name! Grant that those who wear them may always have a deep faith in each other.May they do your will and always live together in peace, good will, and love. We ask this through Christ our Lord.”says the priest
All respond “Amen”
And then in unison Tad and Dottie say to each other ”Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you, For where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. And where you die, I will die and there I will be buried.Dottie laughs here nervously and adds “Beside Dixe as well!’ as they continue May the Lord bless us and keep our union strong and fruitful!Amen
“”Does anyone have just case to prohibt this union ?asks the priest
