My bride and joy.

To quote Shakespeare from The Tempest, "Look
down, you gods, on this couple drop a blessed crown!"

happy man: All the world loves a lover."
It is written:
"When children find true love,
parents find true joy."
Here's to your joy and ours, from this day forward.
Let us toast the health of the bride;
Let us toast the health of the groom,
Let us toast the person that tied;
Let us toast every guest in the room.
"Love be true to her; Life, be dear to her;
Health, stay close to her; Joy draw near to her;
Fortune, find what you can do for her,
Search your treasure-house through and through for her,
Follow her footsteps the wide world over -
And keep her husband always her lover."
~Anna Lewis, "To the Bride"
May you have enough happiness to keep you sweet; enough
trials to keep you strong; enough sorrow to keep you human;
enough hope to keep you happy; enough failure to keep
you humble; enough success to keep you eager; enough friends
to give you comfort; enough faith and courage in yourself,
your business and your country to banish depression; enough
wealth to meet your needs; enough determination to make
each day a better day than yesterday.
"Happy marriages begin when we
marry the one we love,
and they blossom when we love the one we married."
"I drink to the general joy of the whole table."
Shakespeare, from Macbeth
"Here is to loving, to romance, to us.
May we travel together throughout time.
We alone count as none, but together we're one,
For our partnership puts love to rhyme."
"Here's to you both - a beautiful pair, on the birthday
of your love affair."
"Coming together is a beginning;
keeping together is progress;
working together is success."
"Heaven give you many, many merry days!"
Shakespeare, from The Merry Wives of Windsor
"Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of
growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love
is until they have been married a quarter of a century."
"Two such as you with such a master speed
Cannot be parted nor be swept away
From one another once you are agreed
That life is only life forevermore
Together wing to wing and oar to oar"
"Love does not consist in gazing at each other,
but in looking outward in the same direction."
~Antoine de Saint-Exupery
"We've holidays and holy days, and memory days galore;
An when we've toasted every one, I offer just one more.
So let us lift our glasses high and drink a silent toast
The day, deep buried in each heart, that each one loves
"There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when
two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife,
confounding their enemies and delighting their friends."
