Happy Anniversary: A Wedding Story
I have been married for 2 years today. This anniversary has a 16 year love story that I pray one day our grandchildren will appreciate and love to tell. I wanted to share with you our story and our intimate at home wedding. Since this was my wedding I couldn't take the photos (obviously, lol). So I had my friend, who knows nothing about photography, take the photos for me. I will always appreciate her stepping out of her comfort zone (cooking) and being my photographer for the day. At this time I still hadn't realized my passion for photography.
Our Story began at the age of 19 for me and 20 for him. We feel in love quick and he made it really easy for me to love him. Although we dated, broke up, dated, got engaged and eventually parted ways for 7 years. With everything life took us through and all the things we experienced separately, it was all for this very moment right here.
Sometimes you have to accept that you aren't ready for something. All you can do is pray that if it was meant for you then it will come back to you. I guess it was meant for both of us. After 7 years of no contact and living hundreds of miles apart, we reconnected. More mature and knowing exactly what we wanted. A year of long distance dating and we were finally back together in the same place.
Marriage was always on the table, but we had to ask all the right questions. Consider everything that each of us were bringing to the table. Accept each other as we were in that moment and promise to grow and learn together.
I will be honest with you, year one of marriage was the hardest year of all. Oh, but we made it! With Faith, Love and God. He is my partner and I am his. We love unconditionally.
Happy Anniversary to US! Nothing in life worth having is going to be easy. You have to work for it to appreciate it. If you don't work for it then you will miss the value in it.
To my husband, I love you and I thank you for all of your love and support. Thank you for being a great father and a friend. I look forward to growing even older with you. Happy Anniversary Babe.
Love Always, Jeanette
Cause all of me Loves all of you Love your curves and all your edges All your perfect imperfections Give your all to me I'll give my all to you You're my end and my beginning Even when I lose I'm winning 'Cause I give you all of me And you give me all of you, oh oh
