Thomas J. Malsack, 54, and Karen C. Reando, 29, were married on April 19, 2009, in Albuera, Leyte, Philippines.
The groom has lived in Juneau five years, and the bride recently arrived in Juneau.
"This marriage signifies the birth of a new spirit, a spirit which is a part of each of us, yet not of any one of us alone," they write. "This 'birth of spirit' reminds us of spring, the season when all life is reborn and blooms again, to begin their new and loving travels together through life's many adventures and wonders."
Their friends and family wish them health and happiness always.
