For My Valentime (Part 2)

Although you are beautiful every day before and since, this was your day to shine...I'm very certain that nobody even noticed how much time and energy it had taken me too look as good as I did.

You were the perfect bride in every way, and God gave you the perfect day to show off His creation in you to the world. Everyone tells us it was the most memorable and beautiful wedding ever, and it was all because of you. Most weddings are put on to make the bride look good...you made this wedding day look and sound and feel spectacular.

I cried that day as I vowed my life to you, and I cried again as I put this gift together for you, remembering how happy we were that day, and how happy you have made me every day since.

Thank you for loving me.

I shed a few tears myself watching these 2 video clips. You can feel the love you share for each other by the look in your eyes.

Thank you for allowing us to follow along with you during this journey in life.

Happy Valentime's Day to the three of you!

Through tears, I want to say that every woman in the world that watches these videos is going to be so envious of you Tricia!! But you already know that. We see it in your eyes. Such beautiful pictures and what a very wonderful, thoughtful, gift. Again, thank you for sharing Nate. Praying the surgery went well.

Another beautiful video! Nate, you were quite the trim groom, looking very dashing in your tux. It looked like a wonderful day.

I pray that Tricia's surgery went well this afternoon. It didn't hurt at all getting my port removed, but I know it's different for each person.

Good grief - here I am crying again...absolutely spectacular! What an awesome idea to have your parents' wedding pictures on the table with the cake - I'll have to file that one away for when my children marry someday. (Okay, so the kids are 13, 10, 9, 2, and 1 - I like to plan ahead!)

Missed the opportunity to pray for Tricia while she was IN surgery, so praying that her post op stuff all goes well!

Kristi from NY said...

Beautiful song for beautiful people. I'm assuming these pictures were taken by your photographer - what a wonderful job they did in giving you a visual memory of that day.
