I Do. I Do what? Do you (name) take (name) to be your lawfully wedded wife/husband, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health? Do you promise to love, respect and honor her/him throughout your life? These are the questions asked, or a variation thereof, during the vow portion of the wedding ceremony. But do people really think about the meaning of these questions when they answer “I Do” or are they simply reciting what they’ve been told to memorize? As unromantic a notion it is that marriage is a binding contract, that’s exactly what it is on the most basic level. Thankfully some people take pre-marital classes that stress the importance of the commitment that they are about to be enter. Other people are simply cut out to be married and it comes naturally to both husband and wife. Still others just never get it. So what does it all mean?
“I Do” are two of the most important words you’ll utter in your entire life. They are timeless and solemn and life-changing. They are the foundation of the next fifty plus years of your life together with the person you love. They are sacred and monumental. It should not, may not, and cannot be taken lightly. When you say them, or if you already have, think hard about what they mean. Commit to them, love, respect, and honor them as much as you do your husband or wife. Live the words “I Do” for the entire world to see…till death do you part. It is based on those two words that a father and/or mother would let go of their daughter
Enough of the life lesson, before I Scare Everyone. Anyway, back to the main event. I pretty much had my work cut out for me. I was to go over to my My “New” Brothers Crib for some Behind the Scene Shots and for a good bonding Experience. In the history/compendium of Nigeria’s wedding records, in its entirety, this wedding had to be at the pinnacle of its kind. Held at the magnificent El-Shaddai Bible Church– Great Grace Cathedral, Dolphin Estate, Ikoyi. People of timber and caliber, high influence and status, ranks and files, all and sundry, together, graced and braced this splendid occasion glamorously, with their distinct outfits, attires and identities. And so, the wonderful day continued on and on and on and on till the grand finale, almost like a swearing in ceremony, was held to seal this magnificent couple of this generation as ‘husband and wife’ in holy matrimony.
The Idea of my Sister Getting Married often meant that I was gonna loose my sister to another man, but instead I Shared my Sister and Gained a Brother…. in law. We at OrionPixels Wish the Tayo-Gaji Family an Happy, Joyful and Fruitful Marraige.
