22 years ago today I said "I Do" to my sweet hubby Brian...I remember the most about that day as it being VERY HOT!! That late morning I was at the Hair Salon getting my hair done, and almost passing out from the heat right there in the chair! I suppose it didn't help that it was almost noon and I hadn't had anything to eat :( I am the oldest in my family, but I was the last one to get married. My brother (who is a year younger than me) walked down the aisle first, then my sister (who is almost 6 years younger than me), and finally little o me :) Hey, I wanted to live life a bit before I married! And I was only 24when Brian and I did marry :)
I also remember being very nervous....that is until I started to walk down the aisle, then I didn't feel one bit nervous at all! It was meant to be :)
We were married at the same church that my parents had been married in; where I when to Sunday School as a young girl, and it was also the same church that my sister married, and my brother and his wife renewed their vows some years later: (They were married in Arkansas where he was stationed in the A.F. and where they met). So, lots of history with that church (Cedar Springs United Methodist Church), and it was very important to me that I too be married there.
Below are a couple of photos I thought I would share with you. This first one is of myself & Brian :) We didn't (or should I say couldn't afford) a professional photographer, so we had his Dad take some photos for us :) I think he did a pretty good job :) And remember, these photos were taken 22 years ago before there was ever any Digital cameras!
This next photo is my most favorite and my most cherished.....my wonderful father walking me down the aisle. It's so hard to believe that less than 2 years after this picture was taken, that I would lose my father to a car accident :(
And here are us and "my girls"....That's my sister, Tina, standing next to me, and over on hubby's side is my good friend Rita, and next to her, my sister-in-law Anne. Can you tell I did a bit of a Southern theme for my wedding :)
And here are my hubby's "guy's"...to the right is one of the ushers (sorry, don't remember his name), then his youngest brother Lieu, then older brother Mitch,(then us, lol), then his other younger brother Les, and finally, the other Usher (okay, I know his name, but do you think I can remember it now...no!).
