All I’ve done lately is tell you about my newest wedding-themed books so I thought you’d like to see a different side and meet one of the Authors of Main Street. This beautiful bride and her very handsome husband just recently renewed their wedding vows in Scotland. What a way to celebrate 20 years of happiness! Wishing her many more wonderful years.
Leigh Morgan wrote Second Chance Wedding for the Authors of Main Street boxed set Weddings on Main Street. I think she knows a little about weddings, but I’m going to let her tell you.
I was 21 when I got married. We had a big wedding in the gazebo next to the pond in my parents’ yard. It was lovely. Something a princess would have envied. Oddly enough, it wasn’t what I wanted, although my parents, my husband’s parents and my husband all wanted it.
Twenty years later, we said our vows again. Same minister who is a friend, only this time we did it in Scotland with the family and friends who were able to make it. My husband and I rented a house for a week and invited those closest to us to stay. Having our children there made it more magical than anything I could have dreamed of at 21 and, at least for me, far more meaningful.
I love weddings…small, big, intimate, formal. They are all beautiful. What makes them so, is the love shining in the bride & groom’s eyes and the depth of the commitment they are choosing to make to one another.
I ordered a special dress for the second “wedding” it came the day before we flew out — four sized too big. It literally fell off me when I tried it on. Thank the spirits it was prom season. I ended up with a tea length cream and gold embroidery prom dress — not my first choice, but it worked. I even wore clear “glass” slippers. That was perfect for me. Can’t wait to do it again (sans dress & slippers) for our 30th anniversary!
I’m sharing a link to my FB page for more photos there.
