My dear friend Amber got married last Saturday. The whole week before was rainy and cold, but when we woke up to beautiful blue skies and 60 degree temperatures, we knew it was going to be a beautiful day filled with love, family and friends.
We met at a local hotel where we had Mimosas and chocolate covered strawberries while the wedding party got their hair and makeup done. We then went to the church and finished getting dressed in the parlor and waited patiently, enjoying her last hour as a single woman.
There were laughter and tears as we sat and waited for the guests to fill the church. Smiles for the wonderful life she was about to begin with her true love. Tears for the father she had lost less then 2 years ago who wouldn’t be able to walk his oldest daughter down the isle. His best friend did the honor of giving her away and I know her father was smiling down on both of them the whole day just grinning and saying thank you and I love you.
It was a beautiful day and I am so happy for my friend and her new husband. I am blessed that I have so many good loving people in my life and that I got to spend such a special day with some of them. Congratulations!
