To Have and To Hold

Tomorrow is something I am really looking forward to. Stephanie from "Angelic Accents" is hosting a "To Have and To Hold Wedding Blog Party" for all those who love weddings...and who doesn't? Weddings represent all that is good in beginnings...loyalty and trust...and endless love for those who work as hard (seriously..alot HARDER) at the marriage as they did to have a beautiful wedding day. You just have to believe in happy endings..and "I DO!"
So, here is my little montage in honor of the wedding day...I am lucky enough to be able to enjoy many beautiful moments of lots of weddings as my daughters are both professional photographers and I get to peek at the pictures. My daughter, Emily, has graciously given me a few pics to share...I hope you enjoy them and at the very end of this post, I will share a personal moment that was precious to me personally..I hope it brings a little tear to your eyes or a smile to your does to mine to know that love is alive and well and we are all a part of it. Blessings, friends and don't forget to check out the other posts at
The Magic of Weddings...first, there is the ring...
...then comes the planning for the special must have the right pair of shoes...
..and don't forget the bling...lots of bling...
...and flowers everywhere imaginable...
...and don't forget the most biggest "wow" factor of all...THE DRESS!
Add some adoring vows and a little bubbly to seal the kiss...
And you are on your way to your happily ever after...
As promised...on a personal note...when my daughter had her wedding day, it was such a special day for us all...but, especially for my husband who came into our lives when she was just 3 years old. He was the happy ending that had eluded me the first time I was married and he stepped in as the best "step" father I could've ever hoped for. He is a rock and a hero and he does not cry easily. But, on that day, when Katy whispered in his ear as they danced, "Thank you for being my Dad.", all of his devotion and loyalty and love for her came back to him a hundred fold...and he cried...and so did I. Happy endings can really, do I believe?... "I DO!"
