It may take months or years but what’s meant for you will always find its way to you. God doesn’t miss any targets. God doesn’t give someone else your piece of the cake. So rest assured, that if something is meant for you, even if the whole world is competing for it, it will be yours and yours only.

It’s been almost a year since I married David in Secondlife. I am grateful that the care and affection crosses the screen. My life has never been the same in both worlds because he and his family is now my family in real life too.

Fun Fact: David and I met in SL in 2016. He used to be my brother in Avilion Roleplay. I was the Wedding coordinator in his past wedding to another friend who was one of my bridesmaid in my first Second life Wedding but their partnership didn’t last due to some unavoidable circumstances and irreconcilable differences. Come 2020 we finally got closer than ever and we just celebrated our first year Second life Wedding anniversary on June 6, 2022.

[[Locations before we start at 9:45]]
Osiris and Cortes will stand at the altar. The bridesmaids will stand to one side of the altar, groomsmen will stand on the other side. Please look for your name above the pose balls there to see where you need to sit.

[[At 10.00, Osiris will ask Rock and Rei to walk up the stairs and sit on the walker that will be rezzed on the ground at the top of the stairs. Rock sits first, and then Rei. As soon as you both sit, the walker will start to move. Do NOT get up till it stops at the altar!!.
When the walker stops, Rock hops off, then Rei hops off. Both then stand there, watching the altar.]]



Who gives this woman to be married to this man?

“I do”


Thank you sir Rock

[[ Rock can then sit on a chair that will be reserved for him on the front row. Rei can sit on the heart in front of the atlar (that’s your wedding pose machine :-). ]]



Dear friends and family, with great affection for Lady Rei and Sir Cortes we have gathered together to witness and bless their union in marriage.
To this sacred moment they bring the fullness of their hearts as a treasure and a gift from God to share with one another.
They bring the dreams which bind them together in an eternal commitment.
They bring their gifts and talents, their unique personalities and spirits, which God will unite together into one being as they build their life together.
We rejoice with them in thankfulness to the Lord for creating this union of hearts, built on friendship, respect and love.



Heavenly Father, Lady Rei and Sir Cortes are now about to vow their unending loyalty to each other.
We ask you to accept the shared treasure of their life together, which they now create and offer to You.
Grant them everything they need, that they may increase in their knowledge of You throughout their life together. In the name of Jesus.
Amen.

/me turns towards the couple and smiles

Lady Rei and Sir Cortes, please turn towards each other and hold hands 🙂

[[Osiris chooses the “Hold hands” pose]]
Lady Rei and Sir Cortes, the covenant which you are about to make with each other is meant to be a beautiful and sacred expression of your love for each other.
As you pledge your vows to each other, and as you commit your lives to each other, we ask that you do so in all seriousness,
and yet with a deep sense of joy; with the deep conviction that you are committing yourselves to a dynamic growing relationship of trust, mutual support, and caring love.



Lady Rei, will you have Sir Cortes to be your husband, to live together as friend and mate?
Will you love him as a person, respect him as an equal, sharing joy as well as sorrow, triumph as well as defeat.
And keep him beside you as long as you both shall live?


Yes I will


Sir Cortes, will you have Lady Rei to be your wife, to live together as friend and mate?
Will you love her as a person, respect her as an equal, sharing joy as well as sorrow, triumph as well as defeat.
And keep her beside you as long as you both shall live?


Yes I will



Lady Rei, may I invite you to make your vow to sir Cortes?

My beloved Cortes
it is with great honor that I stand beside you in this world.
You are my love, my partner, the keeper of my heart in this world.
You are my best friend, confidante and family in the other realm.
You who looked at me beyond Rei, I am blessed and will always be grateful to you.

You who asked me to jump as you vowed to catch me with both arms, you placed your trust and faith in me that I will and it was the best decision I ever made. Because in jumping, I found that I can be loved back the same way I give love. You gifted me with time, attention and we explored what this world has to offer despite the time difference and our careers, even if you are busy and tired. You ALWAYS MAKE time because you said I mean so much to you.

You are the man who is not afraid to reach out, show all his strengths, weaknesses, vulnerability and even your tears, you never know how much I yearn to hold your hands as you also accept the imperfect me in both worlds. You are the man who shares your inner most thoughts, your fears, your dreams and your hopes with me, you never made me feel alone and you always include me in all your decisions in both worlds.

I thank God for the people who came from our past
because through them we learn to be grateful, appreciate and love.
through them we learn happiness, that happiness led us to be where we are right now in this moment.

As the song says:
And if life should come to just one question,
DO I face each moment true?
Never with sadness, always with gladness,
I do.


Sir Cortes, may I invite you to make your vow to Lady Rei?

My sweet and beautiful Rei,

 I love you so much,  you have brought such joy to my life.

Thank you for loving me as I am, and taking me into your heart.

I promise to walk by your side forever and to love, help, and encourage you in all that you do.

I will take the time to talk to you, to listen to you, and to care for you.

Through all the changes of our lives, I will be there for you always, as strength in need, a comfort in sorrow, a counselor in difficulty, and a companion in joy.

Everything I am and everything I have is yours for now and forevermore.

I give you this ring,   Wear it with love and joy.  As this ring has no end,  neither shall my love for you.  I choose you to be my wife,  this day and forevermore 

This is my promise to you.  



The ring is an ancient symbol, so perfect and simple.
It is round like the sun, like the moon.
It has no beginning and has no end.
It is a circle; for love that is given and comes back around again.
Your rings are precious because you wear them with love.
They symbolize your commitment in marriage.
They remind you of who you are, where you’ve been, and where you’re going.
The ring is the symbol of the commitment which binds these two together.
There are two rings because there are two people, each to make a contribution to the life of the other, and to their new life together.
Let us pray: Bless, O Lord, the giving of these rings, that they who wear them may abide together in your peace and grow in one another’s eyes.

Sir Cortes, please say after me :
I give you this ring,   Wear it with love and joy.  As this ring has no end,  neither shall my love for you.  I choose you to be my wife,  this day and forevermore 


I give you this ring,   Wear it with love and joy.  As this ring has no end,  neither shall my love for you.  I choose you to be my wife,  this day and forevermore 


Sir Cortes, you may now put the ring on your wife’s hand.



/me places the ring on Lady Rei’s finger


Lady Rei, please say after me :
I give you this ring as a symbol of my love, my faith in our strength together, and my covenant to learn and grow with you
I give you this ring, as I give you myself, with love and affection. Wear it in peace always.


I give you this ring as a symbol of my love, my faith in our strength together, and my covenant to learn and grow with you
I give you this ring, as I give you myself, with love and affection. Wear it in peace always.


Lady Rei, you may now put the ring on your husband’s hand



/me places the ring on Sir Cortes’s finger


Lady Rei and Sir Cortes’s wedding rings are a visible symbol of the promises that have been made to each other.
Their two lives are now joined in one unbroken circle.
As you wear these rings they will reflect not only who you are as individuals, but also who you are a couple.



Lady Rei and Sir Cortes, you have expressed your love to one another through the commitment and promises you have just made. It is with these in mind that I pronounce you husband and wife.
You have kissed a thousand times, maybe more.
But today the feeling is new.

No longer simply partners and best friends, you have become husband and wife and can now seal the agreement with a kiss.
Today, your kiss is a promise.
Sir Cortes, you may kiss the bride.

[[Osiris selects the kiss pose]]


The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you.
The Lord lift up the light of his continence upon you, and give you peace.



And now, to all the friends and family, who have come to celebrate this union, I take great pleasure in presenting, for the first time anywhere, the united couple Lady Rei and sir Cortes!

On their behalf I would like to invite you all to the reception for the cutting of the cake and the first dance.
But please….allow for the happy couple and the wedding party to go there first.
The reception will be held right next to this ceremony area, in the big meadow here in beautiful Avilion Heart.

Lady Rei, Sir Cortes, and everyone in the wedding party, may I invite you to go to the reception location?

[[Wedding party moves]]
Friends, family, guests, I now would like to invite all of you to stand and move to the reception location!

We are actually now on the 2nd phase of our journey in Second life and this time it’s about babies, nursery and journey to Second life parenthood which we will also document in this blog. Watch out for that. Huge hugs to all.
