They have been together for 5 years. We would have expected the “Young Love” shine to have lost some of its glow.
But, it hasn’t & it won’t.
5 years in planning a Fairy Tale wedding of which dreams are made, rich with all traditions Polish.
set fire to the woods…
to see if he could build a campfire
beheaded Barbie's in G.I Joe wars
slid his baby sister down a flight of stairs…
in a laundry basket
loves classical music as much as rock & would rattle windows
refused to do homework because..
he already knew it
who plays beautiful music with his soul & any instrument he puts his hand to
who is hurt easily and loves deeply
who stands firm & fiercely for what he believes in
and a Faith in God that as stronger than ever
as a child that wanted everything to happen NOW,
his way or no way,
no patience to wait…for anything…at all
has waited for this moment
All day through the wedding preparations I saw in my mind the boy who was in the teasing and jokes
But it was the man we are so proud of who in Polish tradition
requested, patiently waited for and received the blessings of the parents
All before the wedding
is an affirmation of both bride and groom, the adult they have become, letting go of childhood, parents acceptance of the choice of partner & blessing of the marriage & future life together.
It’s very emotional and beautiful ceremony
