I recently mentioned in my Fathers’ Day post that our pastor invited anyone from our church to his daughter’s wedding.
July 1, 2023 was the day!
I am so pleased that this dress looked amazing and it is a size 6! The silver shoes, the silver clutch and silver and pearl accessories were all spot on! My makeup was just right as well.
As you well know, ladies like to look good at weddings. The church was packed and I can proudly state, I was one of the better looking women there! There is a power, a high, walking into a place like that and knowing you look fabulous! Knowing you are being positively noticed.
I sat on the aisle and as our pastor and his wife (with whom I am also a friend) walked their daughter up the aisle. They had been “backstage” as the church filled up and when they came out, she (pastor’s wife) was blown away by the full church. I was near the back and she was acknowledging a few people with nods and smiles as they started down the aisle and then she saw me. She gently put her hand on my arm as she walked by and that was all I needed to start the waterworks!
The ceremony was beautiful! I never felt more right in a circumstance in my life (I always feel “right” with my wife and children). I was meant to be at that church, I was meant to be in that dress, I was me. I got quite a few compliments on this day. From “you are really wearing that dress!” to numerous folks telling me they loved my dress to my walking into a restaurant afterward for dinner and a woman seated outdoors saying I looked so pretty! Royal blue is definitely my friend!
Here is the best I could do to take shots at the wedding (champaign social afterward) and at the restaurant.
I am truly blessed to be a part of this church and to have such great friends! I remain a sucker for weddings!
