Our family will be gathering to celebrate a wedding very soon. I love weddings. I don’t know what it is about the sight of the bride-to-be walking down the aisle that gets me every time. Is it the hope of a positive life together? Is it the joy I see on her face? Is it that I just love looking at wedding dresses?? I don’t know, but I always get teary.
I remember our wedding and I loved it. I didn’t get over-whelmed with the wedding plans because my fiancé (now husband ;-> ) and I weren’t living in the same state that it was being performed. It was such a crazy time. Rob and I were to be married back home – Oregon - and he was attending college in Connecticut. We flew home the previous summer, made some plans, then left. My poor mom was left with everything.
One of my favorite parts of the planning had to do with choosing the wedding rings. I completely surprised myself and didn’t choose a ring style that I had always thought I wanted. Every time I tried on something big and sparkly it just didn’t look right to me. Rob and I started looking at titanium rings and tungsten rings. They looked solid and strong, just what I wanted our marriage to symbolize. We are approaching 20 years soon. Matching velour track suits aren’t far behind ;->
