... being married to your best friend. :)
Today Bill and I celebrate 20 years of marriage! I can hardly believe it, how time has flown. I have such wonderful memories from that day ... we were surrounded by so many people we loved! I've been uploading photos scanned in by my dad, and thought I'd share some of them here with you all.
(Side note - how different photo-taking and saving is nowadays! How much easier to store and share photos with computers and digital photography.)
First, a shot from inside the church as Bill and I made our way up the aisle as husband and wife.
This is the gazebo in my mum and dad's backyard, all decked out for the autumn-themed wedding.
Waiting outside the church with my dad. His friend Skip was our chauffeur for the day - driving us to the church (and Bill and I to the reception) in his gorgeous antique car.
Bill's mom made these adorable "bride and groom" scarecrows. They were stationed outside the reception hall and "greeted" guests as they arrived.
With our beloved grandparents ... how we miss them.
Me and my girls ...
Bill and his guys ...
I love this picture - it was taken while two dear friends helped me with my bustle, "hidden" behind the bushes. We were laughing ourselves silly trying to wrangle that bustle!
We did finally get the bustle done up as you can see in the photo below. Bill and I sharing a kiss during our first dance (to "At Last" by Etta James).
A toast with the bridal party ... our tables were done up with pumpkins, candles, flowers and bittersweet vines.
Our getaway car!
We drove down to Colonial Williamsburg for our honeymoon, stopping at bed-and-breakfasts in Connecticut and Maryland on the way.
One more ...
So many blessings we've shared ... looking forward to the next 20 years!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, my friends!
