“OK, I’m ready.” With those words, the door slid sideways and his eyes opened. He gasped. Tears came. His throat got tight. He was seeing his little girl in her wedding dress for the very first time. The dress she would wear as she walked down the aisle. The dress she would wear as he gave her away. The dress she would wear as she said I do. The dress she would wear as her last name changed… and she looked beautiful.
The room was filled with tears and emotion. Even as a fly on the wall for this beautiful moment, I felt like part of the family. You could feel the love, the warmth that surrounded Melissa throughout her childhood, her adolescence and into her adulthood. And this was the moment they had all been waiting for her entire life.
Again, she called his name. But this time it was different. This time it was not the man who had loved her since the beginning of her life, but it was the one who is going to love her for the rest of her life. You could feel the excitement in the air. He turned, slowly, and saw his bride for the very first time. He too was seeing her in her dress for the very first time.
Melissa and Matthew, I have no words. Your wedding day was not only beautiful, but so very full of love. I got just a small glimpse into your family and your life and let me say, it is something amazing. You are two of the sweetest people and I thank you for welcoming me into your family for a day. I thank your families too for doing the same. I cannot wait to watch as you build a family and pass down the love that was so clearly shown to you.
Until next time,
