This past weekend we celebrated as our son Drew married his fiancé Huda, or for those on the inner circle #drudawedding. I was so happy as the date was fast approaching. We were honored that so many friends and family members travelled to celebrate this special day.
There was so much love that went in to this celebration beyond the two getting married. I was so honored to be included with the mother of the bride and the bridal party. The bride, her bridal party, and family thought of every little detail as the girls got ready for the wedding so I am even more thankful our son got married first, a lot was to be learned before our daughters get married. The guys have it a little easier, perhaps not less nervous/anxious but a hair and makeup team was not needed.
The first sight of my daughter in law in her wedding gown had taken my breath away, so much so I had to leave the room and regroup. Thankfully I pulled it together for a pre-wedding photo, my daughters laughed saying they saw it coming. Having a moment with my son before the wedding filled my heart with so much love and pride. I thought it possible my heart could burst with love.
Walking down the isle with my husband was a prouder moment then I could have imagined. Yes, more tears but my most precious moment before the ceremony was taking a moment to look at my son, as he saw his future wife walking down the isle, it was a moment I will never forget.
The newlyweds are off on their honeymoon, the families are getting back in to routine. It has had me reflect on the reading Genesis 2:24 ~ “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” From this point forward his first priority is his bride. It gives me great comfort knowing he will be a wonderful husband and his bride will be a wonderful wife.
It’s a wonderful life and their love will only add to the beauty of it ~ and a few grandchildren wouldn’t hurt either 😉
