Here Comes The Bride

I am so excited to showcase my
Oh, it was held over 44 years ago. . .
And yes, everything is vintage.
December 9, 1966
I married the love of my life
 The day was gorgeous and the evening delightful and enchanting.
The day before it had snowed,
So it looked like a Winter-Wonderland
Because it was in December my colors were Red and White.
 My Bridesmaids wore red brocaded satin dresses. . .
The bouquets were all white flowers, with tiny red accents.
My wedding dress has very simple lines.
Just like the 1966 brides all wore.
My dear sweet Aunt made the dress.
I still have it. . . .
(no I can't fit into it)
 A very precious memento of our wedding is
The Cake Topper
 After nearly 45 years I still have my cake topper.
It is very vintage.
 It sits in the protection of my curio in my living room
My grandchildren love to look at it.
 On our One Year Anniversary my husband gave me
This beautiful strand of pearls. . . .
I was so thrilled. . . he told me I was his precious pearl. .
The pearl has become the symbol of our love!
 My husband and I only had 25 years together.
He died at a young age.
I have missed him so much. . . .my life has never been the same.
But, because I know that 
  Families are Forever
I know that Someday
My Husband and I
Will Be Together Again

  9. Love your wedding pics. It sounds like you had truly found the "one" meant for you. I feel the same and I'm blessed to still be with him 35 years later.

    Take a look at my post and scroll down to Linda Johnson Robb. Your dress and her's looks so much alike!

  10. So sorry that you only got to spend 25 years with your love. Your wedding was beautiful even if it was that many years ago. Sweet memories!

  11. LOVE all of the bridal things from the 60's and your dress is a treasure -- especially since it was made for YOU by your aunt! The cake topper is priceless -- just love it! What a beautiful, although too short time you enjoyed with your love. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us.

  12. You were a lovely bride and I enjoyed looking at your pictures. Although you lost your husband at an early age, you must have the most wonderful memories to cherish!

  13. What a beautiful story! And what a lovely pair you made. You hubby was so handsome, and you were so pretty! Its so wonderful that you still have all these memories! :) Thank you for sharing them with us!

  18. Dear Karie, what a handsome couple you and your dear husband were on your special wedding day! Love your gown and am so glad you still have it! Better hide that gorgeous cake topper if I ever come visit! :0) I'm so sorry you lost your love at such a young age, but I know you have such a wonderful attitude about your future and forever life together!
