As we are coming up on our 8th wedding anniversary, this was a wonderful time for me to reflect on the good memories of our wedding day. Our wedding was indeed a dream wedding–one that I had never dreamed of. We knew from the outset that we wanted a big party to get our families together. And that was about. We brought in a wedding planner to figure out the rest (primarily since neither of us was living in the city we were getting married in)! For us, the day was about showing love to the people who had cared for us than about us, connecting our families, and having fun.
But as He does, God truly blessed us with a magical day. Many of the touches to our wedding were gifted to us and completely unexpected. One of my favorite items that has somehow gotten misplaced was our floral broom that we jumped. It is a wedding moment we rarely talk about but one of my favorites, so I spent the page after this picture reflecting on what it meant to me/to us.
There was an ease to the planning of our wedding–and much help in the process–that reflected the ease of our entire courtship. I love looking back on this day because what I remember most was that irreplaceable feeling of happiness knowing I was about to leap into the future with the man I was meant to be with.
