Have you been to a wedding lately? It’s a time of love, laughter, tears of joy, lots of hugging, friends eager to help, and family gathering from across the miles. It’s the launching of a new home, a new bond between two people who promise to encourage each other in the mundane and the earth-shaking. Every guest is a well-wisher, and the bride and groom treasure every one. If you’re the mother of the bride, it’s a day that’s off-the-charts happy and emotional and fun and rich.
My daughter’s wedding day holds so many warm memories. I loved seeing her in the dress she’s dreamed of for so long, on this day she’s dreamed of since she was a little girl.
I loved hanging out in the dressing room while her close friends helped her get dressed. Lots of lively chatter and so many laughs filled that room.
I loved my son-in-law’s reaction when he first saw his bride.
I loved how they had some moments to talk together right before the ceremony when no one could hear what they were saying. There was an intimacy in the midst of all the hoopla.
I loved the setting. You may be sure the decision of where to hold the wedding took months to make. And we all agreed it was the perfect place.
And I loved the littlest lad in the wedding party. He climbed walls, jumped off benches, got his tux a tiny (!) bit dusty. Adorable.
Oh, and I loved the desserts. Especially the pudding cups. I may have eaten more than one. Yum.
Those are a few of the things I loved about this day.
How about you? Have you enjoyed the love shared at a wedding lately?
