The Wedding of Pat Davids' Deams


Last Saturday was the wedding of my dreams.


Oh, not my wedding. My daughter's wedding. Doesn't she look beautiful? Notice the cake topper? It took Tony ten years to ask her to marry him. And yes, that's a black cake. They are an unconventional couple


The day was a perfect summer's day here in Kansas. Sunny and hot. I shopped forever for a dress to wear. You think I'm kidding but I'm not. I hate shopping for clothes, but I did. Day after day. I finally found a great dress that cost an arm and a leg. Don't anyone tell my husband how much it cost. He'll have a stroke.


I don't have a picture yet of him walking our baby down the aisle but I assure you he looked very handsome in his tux. And nervous. How I have dreamed of this day and it was perfection. Of course, that's the mother in me speaking.


God does grant prayers although they are often in His own time and not in ours. I would have liked the wedding before the grandchildren but I'm not going to quibble now. They are husband and wife in the sight of God and I can rest a little easier knowing they are moving toward the path that leads to Him.




This their flower girl and ring bearer.


Yes, that a dog with a pillow and rings on her back. Did I mention my daughter was unconventional?


The flower girl is the happy couple's daughter, my adorable granddaughter. She's the spitting image of her mother, and the apple of her daddy's eye. She was the only one who cried during the ceremony. She was so happy her mother and daddy were getting married. I think she was even happier than I was.


Guess what song the DJ played when they came in. Yup, Who Let The Dogs Out!!! The whole room cracked up.


Yes, it was the wedding of my dreams even if I never dreamed I'd see one with a black cake and a dog. Don't you just love a happy ending with a twist?

I'm crying. What great wedding photos. And, I'm glad they're getting closer to what you hope for them, too. It's amazing to watch our children grow and amazing hard to still our hands and hearts when we want to steer th em.

You're right, Pamela. It is hard to watch them make their own mistakes and yet wonderful to see them make the good choices.

Yikes, I can't believe I made a typo in the title! Guess I shouldn't post at 2 am.
