I keep looking at this corner of our home and think to myself....finally.
Since we moved in our home December 2006, I had dreams of a wedding wall. I'm a hopeless romantic and love looking at wedding photos.
I love so many things about them.....that they are all in black and white, the hair styles, the church, my Aunt Dori's home, the dresses, the cake, the dancing, the looks on their faces. The photos seem to show a simpler time.
It was really hard choosing just one wedding photo for each of our parents. These are the two photos that won out.
Our parents have been married such a long time. This little wedding wall is a constant reminder for me not to take anything for granted and to enjoy each and everyday. I love our sweet life and our marriage.
As you know, I lost my dad this year. I feel just terrible that he didn't get to see "The Wedding Wall", or maybe he can see it and he's smiling down on us.........I sure hope so.
My wedding shoes are on the bottom shelf, Mardi Gras type masks on the second shelf with a photo of us wearing them. We married, December 30, 2000. The year Vegas was celebrating the Millennium Year, lots of craziness in Vegas. It was really something to see.....people everywhere in the streets, fireworks, laughing, screaming......so much celebrating.
The square wooden box holds our dried wedding flowers. Inside the doors, our wedding book, scrapbook from friends with well wishes and my wedding garter.
I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, sickness and in health.
I will love and honor you all the days of my life..........
