Mr. and Mrs. Lane (18 years)

We are a team...We put each other first!
*********************************************************

Gilbert & Cynthia Lane have known each other since 1990. They were Married on October 26, 1995. Read below to find out how music brought these two together!
Wichita, KS
 
The qualities that made me want to marry Cynthia: She seemed to actually like me! She’s also a good person.

We keep the romance alive by refusing to pressure each other; we respect and accept each other as we are. You can't change someone, so why try! We enjoy spending time together, listening to music, and taking trips together.
Our favorite part of marriage is just being around each other.

The most important part of marriage is to accept the fact that NO ONE is perfect. People are individuals, accept them as they are. You CAN'T change them. 
Stressful times always happen. The BIG things seem to work themselves out. It's the little things that cause the biggest problems, understand that.
When those times arise, remember that NO ONE is perfect. Don't put your business in the streets. Remember you are a TEAM! Telling everyone your business will ALWAYS cause problems. The big problems work themselves out; it's the little stuff that grows into big problems. If you can't fix it, don't worry about it. Always have a kind word or small compliment for your spouse. If you look for flaws you will ALWAYS find them. Never get into it with your spouse’s family. They will always be their family. Show them respect (even if they don't respect you).

Strengths of our marriage: We put each other first. Everyone else is second (except in an emergency). We try to have respect for what each other like and deal with it.

What I love about my wife is she is a sweet and caring person. She tries to meet my needs and wants.

I love my husband's vast knowledge of trivia and his musical ability. He is kind and super sweet to me! I love that he shows my family the respect they are due.

Our advice for newlyweds: • RESPECT each other • Put each other first • Don't involve others in your marriage • Be kind to each other and treat them the way you want to be treated • Stay out of your in-laws’ squabbles and show them respect • Say something nice to each other, and don't continually complain and find fault.

The song that best describes our marriage may not describe it but is our song "Got the Blues For Murder Only" by Lonnie Johnson.

Mr. and Mrs. Pedersen 8.9.2019

May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage. – Jalalud’din Rumi Maryam and Matt were married on August 9, 2019 at The Olana Mansion.

Food Terms You NEED to Know!

WEDDING RECEPTION FOOD TERMS (via: www.weddingsforaliving.com ) ANTIPASTO: (“before the meal”) traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. Unlike hors d’oeuvres, antipasto is served at the table and traditionally consists of cured meats, marinated vegetables and cheeses. BUFFET : Casual way to serve a large group of guests; a variety of dishes displayed on tables that guests can pick and choose from. Typically doesn’t work for venues with numerous small rooms. FAMILY STYLE: Platters of food are placed at each table. Wedding guests help themselves and pass the food around to one another. FRENCH SERVICE: This individualized and highly skilled type of food service is not very common in the U.S. Rather than being plated in the kitchen, white-gloved waiters prepare food table side from a single large dish or platter held by another waiter. Each guest is served individually. HORS D’ OEUVRES : (“outside the work” in French). Appetizer typically served befo

After the Ceremony, Before the Reception....Do This!

  You have exchanged rings and vows! You are done taking wedding party pictures...now what?! Before you enter the reception hall and dance the night away take a few moments to enjoy being married. After all, this is the moment that you both have been waiting for! Don't worry about your guests, they will be fine without seeing you for another 10 minutes. Take some time to be alone as a couple. Once you enter the reception doors you will be swamped with conversations, hugs, kisses, pictures, toasts, and dancing. Eat!! Sounds crazy but my husband and I did not get to eat at our reception. I remember the wait staff preparing our plates...they handed them to us...we sat at our Sweetheart Table...was about to take a bite...and then guests started talking to us! At the end of the night we realized that we only had a piece of cake (the small piece that you feed each other for the photo op) and a sip of Sprite during the toast. Have your wedding planner prepare small plates for you and your
