Summer Update: Wedding day!

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008...
...a day that I will remember forever and ever! I woke up and immediately knew that this was a day that would change my life forever. I couldn't believe how calm I was! Soon after a good breakfast and chatting with all my dear bridesmaids (who were in the process of getting their hair done) I was off with Annika (my niece) to the salon to get myself all dolled up! Such fun! 

Annika was my personal attendant and she was such a huge blessing to me. She took all these pictures of me at the salon. She is such a dear. I love her so much!

All done! 

And now for the dress! Isn't it lovely? I felt like a princess wearing it! This dress was also worn by my sister Mindy. It was pretty fitting that we wore the same dress on our wedding days since most of our lives we have been wearing each other's clothes and when we were little my mom would dress us up like twins! It was special wearing this dress, which is destined to become a family heirloom I think! I wonder who will wear it next?
"I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, My soul will exult in my God; For He has clothes me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels." 
(Isaiah 61:10)
