From deep inside her there was a ray of authentic joy. And somehow, on this day, it was even more brilliant than every other day. Her eyes shined with the knowledge that in a few short hours she would be his forever. Deep burgundy flowers draped from above the head table in the barn that waited to be filled with guests. Elegant white hand drawn letters painted perfectly on wood with the menu for dinner that evening. Bridesmaids surrounded her, supported her, stood by her.
Dressed in white and adorned in a ring that belonged to her grandma on one hand and her own promise of a beautiful marriage on the other–she turned the corner the to the moment her soon to be husband would see his bride for the first time. Delight and awe and tender love filled this space in time. In cool water and crisp autumn air they sat and washed each others feet. A symbol of their desire to serve and selflessly put the other above themselves.
On the gold couch in wheat fields swaying from the soft whisper of Fall they sat. Rich, deep reds and delicate fuchsias accented by pastel green leaves gathered into the flowing bouquet she held. Her soft curls swept to one side under the long cathedral veil blowing softly in the wind. He took in even the smallest details. Her lace dress, her makeup, the allure of it all. She was his. There was a sense of acceptance and loving consent in both bridesmaids and groomsmen alike. Laughter. Celebration.
Then the moment came–on top of the rolling hill speckled with wheat rolls just so. Long benches full of family and friends. Under the arch adorned in crimson flowers and gray skies that didn’t hold rain but hope and love and commitment. There they chose one another. That day. And promised to do the same every day after into their forever.
