Such joy and laughter then as well as now.... I am very thankful for "us".
Over two decades now of being a couple, it just keeps getting better n' better!
Waaay back in 1991, two Preppies had a White Tie formal wedding and reception...and had a total blast! So many good memories of that evening and so many wonderful years we've enjoyed together with many more to come, the good Lord willing and the creek don't rise!
Even though our wedding was held up-North, it had a Southern flair to it with the merging of two deep-south families. Both the wedding and reception were held in a wonderfully historic building with huge green marble columns off-set by the delicacy of white tulips, lillies, roses and such n' ribbon and candlelight.... The bridesmaid's dresses were simple, ballet-length Lanz of Salzburg evening frocks in midnight plum tones and the groom and his groomsmen wore white tie. I was going to be just like my mother and wear my white debutante gown with sleeves added to it but fell in love instead with a heavy silk champagne-hued ballgown featuring rosettes scattered across the bodice. Food, festivity and a jazz band completed the fun scene that night while a horse and carriage completed the close to midnight evening's get-away for James and I.
Here's two pictures of that day's happy couple and a more recent picture of said couple at another wedding reception almost two decades later held this past summer in Charleston, SC with my side of the family...
Happy Anniversary to my real life prince charming, my James!
