I was lucky enough to marry my soul mate TWICE in ONE year! I am doubly blessed, what more could any girl ask for?!
We originally planned to get married on the 27th September, however, due to Biblical reasons and the need to start our life together, we could not contain our excitement and decided to officially get married on the 31st of May, but still have our reception on the 27th of September.
The May wedding was an intimate, special and warm affair with only close friends and family. WOW, what a surprise awaited for me with the September wedding!
The day was already special as my now husband, was the one that helped me getting dressed. I could tell him how sexy he looks before leaving the room to meet the guests. I was so nervous whilst walking down the isle and was searching for my husband. (Since I love the Navy uniform , my husband surprised me and had a similar one custom made. To surprise me, he got dressed AFTER he left me in the room … ) Halfway down the isle, I realised it was him standing in the uniform! I was ecstatic and almost threw my bouquet in the air, I remember saying "oe my liefie", when I got to the altar, Pastor Stuart just laughed and said “never has he heard a bride walking down the aisle saying , oe my liefie". This was definitely the highlight of my day, a moment I will never ever forget.
On both special days, my beautiful son walked me down the aisle, this I will treasure forever.
Our wedding was a fun filled day for friends, family and children. The music was phenomenal and the entire day was just unforgettable. I knew on both occasions, as certain as I do now, my husband is my forever and always! Just looking into his blue eyes and gorgeous smile, where the dimples just want to pop,… my heart still skips a few beats. I know that no matter what the future holds, with him by my side, everything will be okay.
Both of the weddings were complete opposites, but I would not change anything, it was exactly the way we wanted it to be … and so much more.
