Show Us Your Life - Week 2

Kelly's Korner is hosting the second installment of Show Us Your Life. This week's theme is wedding party and flowers from your wedding. Our wedding was a classic black and white theme and my bridesmaid dresses wore simple black halter dresses. Our ushers and groomsmen wore classic black tuxes with black ties. I have always thought black and white weddings are classy and timeless. Hopefully, in 20 years my children won't look at my wedding pictures and look at the hideous color scheme that I chose. :) Here are a few pics of our wedding party:

To keep the classy theme, I chose simple roses as my flower. I carried a beautiful and simple bouquet of red roses wrapped up in a white satin ribbon. My bridesmaids carried a small bouquet of white roses also wrapped in simple white ribbon. This is the only close-up picture of my flowers that I had scanned in. Keep in mind that even though we just got married 6 years ago, photography was not as WONDERFUL as it seems to be now. I did not get my pictures digitally so the good ones have been scanned in.

It has been kind of nice to think back to our wedding day and remind myself of how lucky I am to have such a great and understanding husband! This week has been, well...umm....let's just say difficult for us! I am working very hard at remembering that God has big plans for us and even though we don't know what they are yet, we are just going to trust in Him! "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 I'm trying VERY hard to remember this EVERY day, but I'm not going to lie. Some days are easier than others!

Classic never goes out of style - Good choice! I love the contrast of black and white with your red roses!

That is a great verse to daily keep in mind as a married couple. Thanks for reminding me!
