- Wedding: October 2012
I remember being a little girl who dreamed of being a bride or a princess… or better yet, a princess bride. I was enamored with brides and princesses. I would attempt to draw pictures of my wedding dress, even in elementary school.
As a teenager, I continued drawing different wedding dresses while dreaming of color schemes, flowers and bridesmaids dresses. It was one of my favorite, most exciting daydreams.
As a young adult, I watched so many dear friends get married. I was so joyful for them. But the longing for my own wedding grew into an ache. It dawned on me one day that my desire for my wedding became my desire for life-long companionship. I wanted someone to live the everyday life with and slowly grow old with. It was no longer just about a wedding.
Now as my actual wedding day approaches, I have such a mixture of emotions. I am so excited to finally be a bride! I can hardly wait to put on my dress (regret, aside), with my hair done, veil on and flowers in my hand. I dream about the moment I’m walking down the aisle and we see each other the first time. But more than anything, I am dreaming about our life together as husband and wife. I can’t wait for it to start! I have my match. I have my “lobster” as Phoebe on Friends would say. He is my Prince Charming. He is my dearest love.
