Tell the Truth Thursday - Our Wedding Day

Did you have a wonderful wedding day? Would you change anything?


Just 11 years and 7 months ago, was our wedding day.  Pat and I chose March 27 as our wedding day because it was exactly 1 year, after we met.  Our relationship was fast, we met on March 28, we were engaged on Aug 1, and married on March 27th.  It was a whirlwind year, but I have absolutely NO REGRETS!  We had a beautiful spring day for our wedding.  I loved, loved, LOVED my wedding dress.  I wish I had other occasions to wear it.  All our family was there to support us, along with plenty of friends.  We had lot of fun at our reception and I can still remember that feeling of pure happiness that day and evening. 

Frankly the only thing I would change about our wedding was the pastor that we had perform our ceremony.  Since we weren't members of a church at the time, we had trouble finding a pastor that would marry us.  We, of course, wanted to join a church, but hadn't found one yet.  So, the first pastor that agreed to marry us, we met with.  Unfortunately, his views didn't match up with ours and we didn't find out until the week before our wedding.  After the wedding, we never stepped foot in that church again.  We found another church shortly after and became members.  Of course, that pastor said he would have married us, but the woman I had spoke with on the phone that day had turned me away.  Also the church we got married in is no longer a church.  It has merged with another church in another building.  So, we will never be able to take our children and show them the church we were married in.  We can just drive by and see the building. 

But, over the whole day, I was so blissfully happy.  No part of the day was ruined.  Everything was completely wonderful, that I can't look back with regrets.  In fact, I would love to do it all over again!
