ok, the title is ala a Tegan & Sara song, but it rings so true.
i was married on October 27th 2007. i think the pictures will speak for me best.
i came down a small hill terraced with stone steps. my father helped me down, telling me i looked like Our Lady of Fatima. my dad's not an overly emotional guy, but the tinge of love in his voice did not escape me. he gave me away to Jeremy at the foot of a wooden bridge, crossing over a koi pond. we were married with family, friends, turtles & koi looking on.
i kissed my new husband 3 times, in front of everyone. lipstick everywhere & he was smiling at me obliviously. i could only laugh at swipe at it. there was still glitter all over him.
the reception was fun, just like any old dinner with friends. J's brother & best man gave a speech that choked him up. Lisa, my maid of honor & best friend followed suit.
i couldn't wait for the cake!
vanilla cake, raspberry layers, butter cream frosting & fondant flowers--
just for us! (& gluten too! caution hit the wind that day.)
i get to be one of those who remembers her wedding fondly, not a snag to our day.
no dancing, no silly wedding games, just us & friends, talking & enjoying the moment.
it went by extremely fast, but everyone agreed it was really beautiful.
