Christmas Anniversary

DSCN0477aI’m taking a one day break from posting a mailbox photo. Today marks my 20th wedding anniversary, therefore, wedding bells are replacing the mailbox for today.

It was a week before Christmas, twenty years ago today, that my daddy walked me down the aisle.  He gave me to my handsome groom and sat down beside my mother to watch the wedding unfold.  I wore a white velvet gown–a perfect dress for a winter wedding–my Aunt Karen had, hand-sewn a row of tiny sequins around the train to give it just a little bling.  I didn’t want a bunch of fluff and lace–I preferred a simple, elegant gown.  I carried a bouquet of  burgundy, purple, and white dried flowers, ribbons of lace twined within.  My groom was dressed in a black tux, a burgundy bountonniere festooned his lapel.

The sanctuary had been made ready to celebrate our Savior’s birth.  Bright red poinsettias–too many to count– lined the altar.  Evergreens, ribbons of red, wreaths hung on either side of the cross, lighted Christmas trees, and a Nativity just behind where  we would say I do.

The bridesmaids–my little sister (maid of honor), the grooms sister, and  a friend–dressed in burgundy and carrying bouquets miniatures of mine.  The groomsmen dressed in black tuxes–my brother, grooms  brother, and the grooms five-year old nephew (ring barer).  It was a family affair.

We had a small quaint wedding–only family and a few friend–about forty guest total.  The only mishap was when my shoe fell off–three different times–as I made my way back down the aisle with my new husband.  My brand new brother-in-law finally just picked up my shoe and carried it as I limped out of the sanctuary.

Congratulations…rice…dinner… cake…presents…well wishes and good-byes as we set off as Mr. and Mrs.

  1. By the way, Kasey, if you and your husband (or any of your readers & significant others here) happen to have “a song,” I’d welcome having you share it in the “Readers’ songs” section of the blog I’m doing as a surprise for my wife for our 33rd anniversary in February. I’ve been doing it since June, and more than 30 people so far — friends, co-workers, former students and complete strangers — have contributed thus far, and so far my wife hasn’t discovered it.
    If interested, you can see more about it here: http://lovesongs4joanna.wordpress.com/who-is-joanna-and-why-all-the-songs/
    Regardless, congrats on 20 years, and I hope you have 50 more!

    • James, my husband and I don’t have a special song that we call our own. However, I think your song anniversary blog is a really sweet idea. I’m sure she will be thrilled. Congrats in advance on your 33rd anniversary. Blessings, Kasey

  2. Oh, oh! A Christmas wedding. How delightful. I’ve only been to one Christmas wedding, and that was my sister’s. It was the most lovely, beautiful wedding ever.

    Thank you for linking with us at #TellHisStory. 🙂 Merry Christmas. And happy anniversary.
