The organ music faded away. Henry brought Karen to a stop at the front of the church.
Pete cleared his throat. “Who gives this woman to be married to this man?”
“Her mother and I.” Henry lifted Karen’s veil and pecked a kiss to her cheek.
Logan stepped forward. Karen held onto his arm and went with him to stand before Pete. The service unfolded like a pleasant dream. He said what he’d rehearsed at the proper times and with no stutters. Someone must have prayed for his speech to flow so smoothly in this crucial moment. His heart did the
talking, not his intellect.
Pete prayed, and then he preached a sermon. Karen handed her roses to Julia and turned to hold Logan’s hands. Pete guided them through the vows and exchange of rings. The wedding band Mama had given him months ago had gone to the Gouds’ jewelry store along with Karen’s engagement ring earlier that
morning to be melded together as one ring. Arthur had picked it up for him, and now it lay in Logan’s hand.
At Pete’s prompt, he repeated the words affirming this sign of covenant and slipped the ring onto Karen’s finger. It sure looked good there, stating to the world that she was his. Karen did the same, repeating her vows and placing a wedding band on his finger.
Pete prayed once more. Everyone sang a hymn, and then Pete looked at Logan with twinkling eyes. “I now pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss your bride.”
His heart pounded. He’d looked forward to this moment. Now that it had arrived, joy flooded over him, making him shake. Karen was his wife. He was her husband. The fact pressed him to reach for her, cup her chin, and savor this new reality.
For the first time he could recall in the history of Oswell City Community Church, the sanctuary erupted in applause.
Pete’s voice boomed out, forcing Logan to break the kiss. “It is my pleasure to introduce to you for the first time, Pastor and Mrs. Logan De Witt.”
Mrs. Logan De Witt. Boy, did he like the sound of that. If the organ hadn’t started playing, he’d turn around and ask Pete to say it again. But Karen tugged on his arm as an indicator the time had come to stand in the back of the church and greet their guests. He walked the aisle with her wearing a smile that
threatened to stretch beyond his ears.
