wedding wish wednesday #19: the moment
I've heard time and again that weddings fly by - that the couple will blink and the event will be over. That after spending countless hours planning and preparing their celebration, it will flash by in a blur where the bride doesn't get to eat dinner, or the couple feels so rushed around they don't get to spend a few quiet moments together. The worst is when I hear about the bride being so nervous about "everything" that she can't focus on the ceremony.
Not what I want.
When saying my vows, I want to be more present in that moment than any other. When I am looking into the eyes of my husband, I want to take in every fleck of glittering green and beautiful blue that they hold. I want my senses to be alive - not with the help of heaps of coffee - but with pure life. (annnnd maybe a cup of coffee or two...)
I wish to feel free on my wedding day - free to feel every emotion. To capture those moments, tuck 'em close to my heart for safe keeping and memory lane. To enjoy, and revel, in every last second.
