I wrote my last exam this morning, therefore it is officially my first day of the summer and I have been celebrating with a full day of catching up on scrapbooking. :)
I have made it my goal to scrapbook our wedding and first few months of marriage, and wrote this little story to scrapbook from the morning of our wedding- i don't want to forget a moment!
The morning was flying by so fast. One moment I was waking up my dear best girl friend beside me, then I found myself with cucumbers to my eyes and my hair piled high in rollers. Before I knew it the ladies in my party were looking beautiful as ever, and Stephen handsome and proud. I was near bursting with anticipation and excitement as they slid me into the most exquisite gown I’ll ever wear. Flowers and a letter from my Sweet were placed in my hands when everything finally slowed down and I realized today is the day. I embraced my parents and brother on the last morning I would ever share their last name, before we piled into vehicles and formed a convoy to the park. I could have fainted when “Good to You” began ringing through the speakers, knowing that Julian was standing before all our friends and family now. Paxton bravely marched the aisle, along with Leah and Stephen. Chalene, a natural maid of honor, quickly adjusted my veil and perfected the flow of my train before disappearing to the other side of the bushes concealing Dad and I. I all of a sudden felt my brain go numb, not out of fear but rather overwhelming excitement! All I could remember was the line during “Find a Way” at which I’d plan to begin our march. I paid no attention to the fact that the crowd was already standing and Dad was anxiously trying to get me to move. It wasn’t until the precise moment in the music that we stepped out from behind the bushes I was beaming from ear to ear and squeezed Dad’s arm with every ounce of strength I had. I have no recollection of what Rob preached that day, I wouldn’t even had remembered saying my vows had it not been such a struggle to hold back tears during them. I have been told that as we kissed our first as husband and wife, a sunbeam shone down on us as if straight from heaven- and I believe it had.
