In previous posts I mentioned that my maternal grandparents were unable to make it to my wedding due to health reasons. This was heartbreaking for all of us, as I am their only grandchild and they had always dreamed of being a part of my special day. Before getting on the airplane, which would take me to Buenos Aires, they surprised me with the matching necklace to my unique engagement ring. They had it personally designed and asked me to wear it during my wedding, so that at least they would be close to me in spirit.
Just moments before my ceremony, I decided that I needed to Skype my grandparents and let them know that they were in my thoughts. I had no idea while I was speaking with them that Kyle, my wedding photographer, was filming me. In fact, she herself had forgotten about the video and only shared it with me several weeks ago. Every time I watch it I tear up. I hate that they could not be there, however I know I am blessed to simply have them in my life, period.
While I was Skyping them, everyone else was anxiously getting ready for the ceremony. And, of course, posing for more photos!
As I rode down the elevator with my Mom I swear I thought my heart was going to leap out of my chest.
Had the moment really arrived? Which is your favorite pic?
