Today is my wedding anniversary — 13 years. So today’s 3 things about me will be about my wedding. As usual, feel free to play along.
1. I was too vain to wear my glasses to my wedding. My eyesight isn’t horrible, but things in the distance are rather blurry. So my handsome groom was a big blur until I got almost all the way down the aisle. I’m pretty sure I married the right guy, though. 🙂
2. Our rehearsal dinner is one of my favorite memories ever. Our family and close friends were there and many stood to share advice or speak blessings. I can still remember what most people said and how blessed I felt.
3. We faced the congregation during our wedding, and our pastor stood off the platform with his back to them. This way, the congregation could see and hear everything during our vows. We could also see the faces of the people in the congregation (well, I could see the faces of the people in the first few rows — see #1).
Bonus fact — We learned that couples should use dripless candles for the unity candle ceremony. We were holding back giggles and scraping wax off our fingers during the song after we lit the candle.
Bonus fact #2 — I married the man who far surpasses my dreams, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
