I am not sure if I have shared this quote with you. Mike and I had this recited at our wedding.
"Here is the stuff of which fairy tales are made, the prince and princess on their wedding day. But fairy tales usually end at this point with the simple phrase, 'They lived happily ever after.' This may be because fairy tales regard marriage as an anticlimax after the romance of courtship. This is not the Christian view. Our faith sees the wedding day not as a place of arrival but the place where the adventure begins."~ The Archbishop of Canterbury
It isn't about the pretty dress.
The table chart
The bachelor party
Whether or not to serve wine vs champagne
French-tip or hot pink nails
Heels, flip flops or Converses
It is about you, your husband and God looking forward together. You take what is behind you, what is with you and go, all three of you. And you don't stop.
I am going to have to remind myself that when Mike gets home. True Story.
You can't lie, I looked pretty smokin' with my french tip nails, flip flops and amazing dress (with no vail GASP)
