20 Years of Wedded Bliss!

It has not always been perfect, but the sum total of all of our years together is 20 years of wedded bliss.


10-20-10 = 20 years for my husband and me.




This is 10-20-90



Isn't the church beautiful? I regret that the ugly (and long since removed) chandelier blocks the view of the breathtaking stained glass window. I tried to find it online but could not.



This is in the limosine after the Mass, before pictures.




Notice the red bouquet?

I wanted all red, but my Mom said it was too dramatic for a bride to carry all red.

Too dramatic? I can laugh now...

This picture is on the steps of the chapel at Vassar College.

We were not married there, but it was walking distance from the church.

We did not walk, however, we took the limo.

Back to dramatic...





The extra-long cathedral train was pretty dramatic.
As was the head gear! Look at that 1990 poof!
And the sleeves? Maybe we should not discuss the sleeves from 1990!
Oh, how I loved that dress!
To tell the truth, I still do!


And this, this is my beautiful Mommy, wearing her very dramatic, red corsage!

We lost her 5 years ago on 11-20-2005

When this picture was taken, she was one year older than I am today.

One year from now I hope to look half this good!

Happy anniversary to the other half of my heart, my soulmate.

I pray God blesses us with at least another 20 more!



This post is linked to Rednesday. The perfect day for my anniversary as I love all things RED. My love of red should be obvious, after viewing my bridal bouquet!! Happy Rednesday!!

Happy Anniversary Lily!

Wow, 20 years! We just had our 21st on the 7th of this month. Seems strange to think it sometimes doesn't it? Two decades....

Your dress was beautiful and your flowers were gorgeous. May you have 20 X 2 (at least) more happy years together!

Blessings,
Martha

Happy Anniversary. Lovely wedding photos.

I am so happy to see the Madonna on your side bar. So few Catholics post it on their blog. Nice to see.

Thanks for the visit to my ruby Tuesday. Your comment was like adding icing to a cake.
