Mosaic Monday ~ Remembering

March 22, 1978. The bride wore a lovely dress of white with blue flowers embroidered on the bodice. Handmade by her Mother. She wore a wreath of myrtle in her curly brown hair with bits of baby's breath tucked here and there. The handsome groom wore a suit of blue and very sexy sideburns (it was the 70's after all) and a shy smile. Their flowers were yellow Roses and Pussy Willows. The church glowed with candlelight and though a simple event, quite magical. No budget of thousands; this wedding was put on by friends and family all joining in with their special assignments. Her brother Andy would be the Man of Honor (instead of a Maid of Honor), Debbie would play the piano, Patty would sing, Mel would take the photos, and her father would walk her down the aisle to the beautiful words of "The Wedding Song." ...Well then what's to be the reason for becoming man and wife? Is it love that brings you here or love that brings you life? For if loving is the answer, then who's the giving for? Do you believe in something that you've never seen before? Oh there is Love, there is Love...

And there is still so much love.

Always, Kit

Lovely memories of a very special day. One could spend those thousands and tens of thousands and not have a memory half as sweet. Congratulation!

Simply beautiful! I love those old photographs! Your wedding always sounded so magical and special. :) And I'm awfully glad it happened, or I wouldn't be here! You are a magnificent couple, and I have learned so much from the love you share.
