This is the timeline for the ceremony:

We picked out our vows:
I, Kari/Jon, take you, Jon/Kari to be my husband/wife, my constant friend, my faithful partner, and my love from this day forward. In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.

I love it.

Next on the to do list--meet with ceremony musician. :)
