Reverend Gibson Santos speaking to the happy couple.
Jansen had composed his own vows in Pohnpeian and spoke them to Daphne from memory. The words were powerful and moving testaments to his eternal love for her. Then Daphne spoke her vows to Jansen in English pledging herself to him and speaking of him as her only love. The ceremony was short and powerful, a well-crafted mix of the traditional and the modern.
Following the ceremony the happy couple greeted the congregation at the Nan Mand chapel. Rosalinda Salvador greets Jansen, her mother Eunice Anson Salvador just behind her.
