Trevor and Miranda decided that they would have their honeymoon in Italy so that they could visit some museums with Renaissance art that Miranda loved. After six months of preparation, it was time for the big day.
The church was packed on their wedding day. Trevor's parents and Miranda's parents had a joyful reunion filled with hugs and tears. They promised each other that they would stay in touch more often. Miranda looked beautiful in her long, flowing wedding gown and veil, with beautiful white flowers in her midnight-black hair. She felt flushed as her father walked her down the aisle to her groom, who looked very dashing and elegant in his black tuxedo, with his black hair slicked back. When she got to Trevor, he held her hands and squeezed them tightly.
Wes began the ceremony: "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to witness the joining of Trevor Gaynes and Miranda Parker in holy matrimony. These two have known each other practically all of their lives, and they have been tremendously blessed by one another's friendship and love. And now, here we are today, watching as these two make a special promise before God to keep this friendship and love in the special and holy covenant of marriage in sickness and in health, for better or worse, till death do them part."
Trevor's parents sobbed very deeply at the words "special promise before God," "holy covenant," and "in sickness and in health, for better or worse, till death do them part." Suddenly they felt remorse for not having worked hard enough to keep that covenant between them. As they cried, the Lord spoke to their hearts: "I can give you another chance to love each other in that covenant." Trevor's father turned to his mother and whispered, "Henrietta, I should have done more to work on our marriage when we were married. I ask you to forgive me for always being too busy for you and Trevor and would like to be your husband again."
"I ask for your forgiveness, too," she said. "I am sorry for always criticizing you and not loving you as a wife should. I would love to be your wife again."
The two kissed, and Trevor and Miranda smiled at them. Trevor's parents also asked God for forgiveness for walking away from their marriage the first time and promised Him they wouldn't do it this time. In a few minutes Wes pronounced Trevor and Miranda as husband and wife, and soon after everyone went to the reception. When Miranda tossed her bouquet, she tossed it to Henrietta.
