Valentines Day Wedding!

I’d like to take a moment to share something personal with everyone! On Valentines Day, I got married to my long time friend and lover, David. We had a wonderful ceremony on Valentines Day, and I couldn’t be happier!

I met David in 2013 and we have been together ever since. He’s a retired metal worker, so he’s got lots of free time on his hands. He is so sweet to me and he enjoys making our home beautiful in his spare time.

David is not spiritual at all, he’s an atheist, but overall, it doesn’t matter to me, we get along great. We are very happy to have each other. He has always been supportive of me and my work in Satanism.

Our wedding ceremony was special, not just because it was our own special day, but also because we shared our day with other couples who were getting married too.

The wedding ceremony was a special event sponsored by my local courthouse. Being there at the ceremony made me feel like a part of the community. There were all kinds of couples there at the ceremony – both young and old, and some with families too. What a special day we all had! You could feel the energy of love when we were all gathered there.

The best part about the ceremony was that the vows weren’t religious, so I felt comfortable saying “I Do!” without the unnecessary religious overtones added in. That made both of us happy!

Originally, the event was supposed to be held outdoors, but nature wasn’t cooperating. On valentines Day it was cloudy and misty and cool, so they moved the event indoors. The decorated the courtroom with balloons and streamers and they provided to us cupcakes and gifts for the brides.

After the ceremony, we headed home, but I wanted us to have our own special ceremony just for us. Before the wedding, I set up my altar space in tribute to Venus, the goddess of love.

When we returned from the wedding, I lit the two candles on either side of her and asked Venus to bless our marriage. It was a beautiful moment. Now every year, during Valentines day, when the whole world is celebrating love, we can remember the day that we took our own vows for the sake of love. Life is good!
