at last

My fave picture of the procession is this stunner of me and my dad.  I just love it.  It was so nice to walk down holding onto his arm.  I remember those moments so if  we made that walk this morning.  I'm glad that my wish came true and that I was super smiley and tears were nowhere to be found!

Instead of walking down the aisle to the classic wedding march, or the lovely Canon in D, I went with a classic love song instead.  This love song always gives me has a perfectly dramatic prelude that swells and then subsides into pure sweetness.  The melody twirls around in my memory so beautifully.  I let the music play until the words started...anticipation builder you know.

At Last, by Etta James. 

I can't even tell you what I was thinking as I walked down the aisle towards my smiling Tommy.  My heart was beating, I was breathing, and my world was about to change forever.  Life is like a song.
