Today Mir is getting married to the man of her dreams, Otto. (Name changed to protect the lovebirds.) I have been invited to participate in her bridal shower by sharing a photo from my own wedding and/or a bit of advice or a quote. In honor of their marriage, I am offering up both.
Here is a picture of that amazing day. (Give me a break on the hair and big dress. It was 1990–which as we all know is still the stepchild of the 80’s!)
I wondered what it was about this picture that I love so much. I think it is because the moment captured in this picture is my favorite wedding moment in all weddings. This is the moment when you know it is real. The wedding has ended. The planning has been taken care of. The only thing left is to party and enjoy being man and wife.
With that I offer you this quote:
My Greatest wish for the two of you is that through the years your love for each other will so deepen and grow, that years from now you will look back on this day, your wedding day, as the day you loved each other the least.
