The bubbly was simply not a strong enough match for the butterflies in my stomach and my nervousness was only exemplified with the news. My Mom, not being able to resist, had to have a sneak peak at what they looked like.
She eventually returned and proclaimed in her wise wisdom:
My darling daughter, you have most handsome groom in the world eagerly awaiting to become your husband, so now it is time for you to finally relax.
Lucas spent the hour before the wedding practicing his vows over and over.
While I spent it preparing to put the dress on.
I love fashion — always have and always will. However, having traveled to some of the most developing nations in the world I always think twice now before spending an exorbitant amount of money on it. I honestly do not understand women who spend thousands and thousands of dollars on their wedding dress. It makes no sense to me to spend that kind of money on something you only wear once. Thus, before I went wedding dress shopping I set my budget quite low. I thought it would take me months to find the dress of my dreams for the price I was willing to pay and was completely shocked when it turned out to be the second dress I tried on.
Then I heard a knock on the door. My Dad and brother had come to check on me. Seeing how handsome they looked completely took my breath away.
My Dad, upon seeing me, was speechless as well. I cannot imagine the emotions he was feeling, as I am his only daughter (he has three sons).
Since the ceremony was soon about to begin, everyone left me except for Kyle, my wedding photographer. I took a couple of deep breaths and posed for some more photos for the last time as as single woman.
Which is your favorite photo?
