You Send Me

Look at this girl. She's so young. I wish I could talk to her and tell her all the things she needs to know. I can't though and she's had to find them out on her own.

It's hard to believe this girl (and really, that's what she is) is me, 14 years ago. That's right, today M and I have been married for 14 years today. I'm not going to get all mushy (that's not my thing), but let's have a little peak at the big day. BTW, remember this was 14 years ago and there was no cool digital photography back then, so they aren't fab fancy photos, but that's okay.

This is me with my dad right before walking down the aisle. Isn't he handsome?

Our priest had never done a wedding before and forgot to tell us to stand up from the prei deu. Except for the actual vows we spent the entire wedding ceremony (almost an hour) kneeling. We kept snickering because we knew he forgot and were debating whether or not to just stand up. We opted to stay kneeling. Oh, Father Joe also had a stutter and couldn't say my name correctly. It made for an interesting and laughter filled ceremony. I'm assuming we ARE actually married, but who knows?

The vows. He finally told us to stand! M's parents were married in this church in the early 60's. It's such a beautiful church.

My mom made the cake. It was alternating layers of strawberry (my favorite) and white cake. Yummy. And no, he did NOT smear it in my face. He wanted a good honeymoon. Also, look how thin I am in this photo! Did I ever eat?

Our first dance was to Sam Cooke's You Send Me.

At first I thought it was infatuation
But woo, it's lasted so long
Now I find myself wanting
To marry you and take you home

You, you, you, you send me
I know you send me
I know you send me
Honest you do

Happy Anniversary!!! If the years go by quickly, I'd say you are in good shape. And that cake is great! My mom could never do that.

Oh congrats, congrats! I really liked reading about your special day. How time flies!
The church I grew up in didn't have pews, so now every time I have to kneel for very long, I start feeling it really fast and get restless. I can't imagine kneeling so long.
Everything from your wedding looks so beautiful.

I just wanted to let you know I've give you an award on my blog. :-)

I look at photos of me when I married my first husband and am amazed at all that would happen. Sometimes ignorance is bliss but I'm not sure.

Mike B said...

Beautiful. Hope those all Oreos mentioned in Heidelbergerin's blog aren't taking their toll. ;)

Happy Anniversary

Joy said...

I hope you had a wonderful anniversary celebration!

Your offer of a trip to Germany is INCREDIBLY tempting! My husband would be in seventh heaven. He lived in Germany for two years a long time ago and has always dreamed of going back for a visit.

So do you have a guest room????? ;~)
