10 Years Ago this Week: Part II
Happy 10th Anniversary to us!!!
10 years ago today all our friends and family had safely arrived in town and were waking up to a beautiful September morning. All of the family on SJ's side were up at 2 am to watch Princess Diana's Funeral. Our wedding was at 3 pm in a beautiful stone church and then the reception was at an Art Museum. I would not have changed anything about that day. In fact I'd love to do it again with the same guy!
This is a picture of my maid of honor and myself. She is currently working for the US State Department in a far away place. I am so proud of all that she has accomplished in these 10 years. I know she'll check over here today so I will take the opportunity to sing her praises and tell her I love and miss her!!!
P.S. I know I owe you all my silly first day of school photo. I will get that up tomorrow!
Here are some more pics...
Here I am getting dressed:
Here I am with my cousin K. I was in her mother's wedding when I was 8. She was in my wedding when she was 15. She is now engaged to a wonderful guy and will be getting married next June. My kids will continue the tradition and will be her flowergirl and ring bearer!
Formal photos were done and we were waiting for the limo to arrive at my parents house. I'm here with my brother and father.
Here we are waiting to go down the aisle. I am with my dad and Maid of Honor. The church was so small that it did not have room for me and my dress between the outer and inner doors so I had to wait outside to go down the aisle. I literally stepped off the sidewalk onto the aisle!
As you can see, I made it all the way up the aisle!
And back down again!
SJ's wonderful parents that day. His father passed away nearly 3 years ago now and we miss him every day.
Photos in the Japanese garden of the Museum.
Our First Dance
Our Yummy Cake- the top of which we ate on our first anniversary!
And finally- in 2003 an editor from Modern Bride called me after she got a hold of one of our wedding photos that the photographer submitted to a photo contest (and won). She asked if she could print it on the last page of their December 2003 issue where they highlight each month an already married couple. So of course I said yes.
(I took out the paragraph b/c it has all sorts of personal info in it. )
