The Wedding Day finally arrived! It seemed so far away the night they got engaged, but it crept up and happened before my eyes could blink. It was an amazing, emotional and beautiful day. I could not have asked God for a more blessed day.
|My daughter and I at the church rehearsal. My shirt said "Mother of the Bride." It was one made by one of my staff members from work. This was the first and last time I was able to wear it.|
All the girls got their hair and make up done at the house. I set up the formal living room into a "make shift salon." I had fruit, pastries, juice and coffee for them to consume during the morning. The first of the the bridal party arrived about 8 a.m. It turned into Bridal Central in a matter of an hour. It was everything she wanted. It was everything I wanted for her.
Each one of these young ladies played a special role in my daughter's life. They all undertook the bridal party job to heart and treated my sweet girl like a queen the entire engagement and we had plenty of pre-wedding things to do and events to hold. There was never a dull moment with them. I could not have asked for a better group of girls to stand beside my daughter as she took her first steps into marriage.
My daughter was as poised and calm as I have ever seen her. I will never forget this day. She knew what she wanted and she had no ounce of fear. She was ready, even if I wasn't. She was confident in all she was and all she was about to become. A wife. Yes, my sweet girl was about to become a wife.

We were proud parents of our new son in law and gorgeous daughter. We couldn't be any happier. It was such a wonderful day.

This was my favorite photo of the day caught by the photographer. It describes the entire day- just magical. This day was all theirs. Every little detail was all about the two of them. This picture couldn't have expressed it any better.
I pray God blesses their union today and always. May their life together be forever blessed, bountiful and full of a fun amazing life.
