Storybook Wedding

I think each little girl dreams of her

Wedding Day

and I was no exception.
Elaborate, or on a budget,
it can be Perfect!

My dear mom made all the bridesmaid dresses,
and helped me plan my special wedding day.

We met in August and we were married December 28, 1972,
almost 38 years ago.

I did a post last December about my
Red Plaid Wedding.

If you'd like to re-live it with me,
I invite you take a ride in the time machine.

And so began our lives together.
Joined together and kept together by God.
Without Him
we would never have found our way.

We were so young and really didn't know each other very well,
We just knew we were meant... yes,
 ordained to be together.

We have two darling daughters,
that their Daddy has walked down the aisle,
just like mine so many years ago.

And they lived happily ever after...

Please join Stephanie and all the Brides,
old and young,
for all the Wedding fun!

  8. Debra, this is such a lovely tribute to everlasting love! Congratulations on 37++ years together! Great pictures of your wedding and I love the way you placed each of your beautiful daughters' trips down the aisle beside yours! You should have that enlarged and framed like that!

  10. Beautiful, love the pictures with your daughters too.

  11. You guys both still look grrrrrrrrrrrreat! All of you girls made simply beautiful brides.


  12. How beautiful! I love that you have been married for 38 years. We have been married 33 years ourselves. Your daughters weddings are lovely!

  13. Hi Debra, So nice to meet you. What a gorgeous bride you are and also your two beautiful daughters. Congrats on nearing 38 wonderful years together. Your love is all inspiring.
    I so enjoyed my visit to your lovely blog.

    Have a blessed day and fun at all the parties.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  14. Debra, that was so fun to see! Oh my, my husband had sideburns like that when we met : )

    A few years ago I scanned our old (non-professional) wedding photos and made a new album. It was fun to re-live the moments.
    In our daughters wedding album I included a page with their parents and grandparents wedding photos. Such beautiful days in all their lives!

    How delightful to see your wedding day and the day of your daughters.

  15. So beautiful bride and lovely photos, congrats for the 38 years!


  16. Aaaawww, how sweet you looked, sugar! We're in our 49th year and it just keeps getting brighter and brighter for us.

  17. Such a great post and thanks for the trip in the time machine. I cannot get enough of gandering through people's wedding pictures.


  18. Thank you for sharing. What a beautiful post. Be blessed. Cindy

  19. I just love reading about couples who have been together so long. And I do remember your red plaid wedding post. What were we thinking back in the 70's. Each decade I always wonder if we will look back & think "What was I thinking?". And so far, it pretty much ends up that way. I am so enjoying getting to know everyone a little bit better.

  20. Beautiful pictures. I's always wonderful to hear about other couples who have made the decision to make their marriage last a lifetime.

  21. Darling, sweet and life affirming post. The last set of pictures was a wow collage.


  22. Oh, Debra, you & your daughters are breathtaking brides ... what lovely memories for all of you.

    Have a lovely summer's eve ~

  23. OH my sweetness I took a trip with you and the red plaid and it is darling...especially if it made your dreams come true. Your picture with your daughters is beautiful. Congratulations and it is true that God has to be in the center of this all to make it work.

  24. Ok, I just saw a picture on your blog from Spring Creek Antiques and you are from sw mo. I am in Branson, my booths are at Cadwells and Main Street Flea market in downtown Branson. Are you from Ozark???
    How funny is this, small world.

  25. Love your wedding post. Beautiful cake and beautiful bride. Thanks for sharing.
    Congrats on 38 years!
