Melanie and Ryan's Wedding Day
The Big Day from a Dad's Perspective:
Carol and I were delighted to share news of Melanie's engagement to Ryan Cocks last summer. Several months ago I watched Father of the Bride with her in anticipation, just Melanie and I. Yes, I'm a sentimental Dad who loves his daughter.
Then today was the day I was privileged to accompany Melanie down the isle to respond to the question, "Who gives this woman to be married to this man?" It was easier then I expected because I think so highly of Ryan. This is how I expressed my heart to Ryan and Melanie during the reception as Carol and I, along with Ryan's parents, welcomed them into our families.
During the ceremony preceding I had reflected with Melanie and Ryan on the covenant love of the Lord our God expressed in Hosea 2:19-20, as the basis of their vows, here.
