Having four daughters, I've often lamented the absolute stress involved in all the preparations and actual happenings for a wedding ceremony that seems over in the blink of an eye!! And it always seems something goes wrong, even if it's a small something. Your story reminded me of that...as I smile. God bless!

Yep, I had one of those weddings myself. And you're right...thirty-five years later, the wedding is just a distant memory but my marriage is a daily blessing. Thanks for the reminder.

I think a perfect wedding is the dream and great expectation of most brides planning that big day and it often seems such a disaster and becomes so emotional when things go wrong and you have captured that so well, along with the message and wisdom of the real importance of the day! Good read, Good job on this!

Oh how I can relate to this story, so many things happened when we got married! I enjoyed it...Nice job. God Bless~
A great reminder of letting go of our expectations in the little things to focus on what's really important. Vows were made before God, friends, and family. That's huge! If the cake was a little melted, well, that's ok.
My older daughter recently got engaged we are planning the wedding for next year so I could so relate to the MC/ I've already told Emily everything won't be perfect, but as long as you are marrying the perfect man for you that's all that matters. I loved this from the beginning to the end. Time does fly doesn't it?
Congratulations for ranking 7th in level three!
