…All the days of my life…
…the verse from the ceremony that resonated through the valley. A simple phrase with such a profound meaning. There stood a man and woman, who had greeted each other earlier under the shade of a mimosa tree and showered one another with hugs and kisses , now ready to pledge all the days of their lives to the person at their side.
This wasn’t a new concept for Carrie and Eric. When they planned their wedding they did it as a joint effort. Each pledging their devotion to the other through thoughtful acts. Carrie, knowing Eric’s love for maps, had cufflinks made for him. One with a map of the city in which they live, Atlanta; and one of the city in which they were married. Eric designed and built the arbor under which they were to pledge their devotion, and drove it a grueling 8 hours to the site of their vows. The also spent Saturday after Saturday perusing old book stores and library sales to find titles relevant to their wedding day, which they then used as part of their centerpieces, and then gave to the guests as parting gifts. They both dedicated themselves to making the wedding day special…and that my friends, is truly special.
It was a magical day filled with laughter, tears, butterflies, happiness, and most of all love. Thank you Carrie and Eric for sharing your story with me…
