I was lucky enough to marry my dream man TWICE!
My mother wasn't going to be able to attend our wedding (planned for 26 Sept), so my amazing man arranged, (at short notice!) for a small, intimate family wedding for 13 Sept at my mom's retirement home. It was so special, so caring and so profoundly meaningful for my mom to see me get married and help arrange the wedding plans for that day.
I felt that our 'proper' wedding was the one we arranged for the 26th. We both agree that it felt as though we had all our friends over for a great evening out. It was beautiful, sentimental, loving and calm.
I broke my arm eight weeks before the wedding, so the fact that I was healthy enough to walk down the aisle without a cast or sling was an added blessing!
Of course, the best part is that we get to spend our happily ever after with eachother!
