johnny & rosy’s wedding
So, by now you know that Johnny and Rosy are two guitar-playing lovebirds. We met in church, we got married soon after. That was 15 years ago.
Our wedding was spectacular. We planned it all last minute, thanks to Jennie’s Flowers the centerpieces and bouquets were beyond lovely. Everything was decked out in beautiful bright colors: oranges, whites, yellows, pinks, and purples. There were hibiscus, lilies, roses, lilac, and everything in between.
Rosy’s dress was strapless and simple. She wore her hair up in a bun adorned by a lovely flower crown. She looked elegant, yet fun. I couldn’t wait to marry her.
I wore….yes, a white suit. We wrote our own vows and had them memorized.
At the reception, we served fried chicken, collard greens, sweet potato, gourmet pizza, spaghetti, lasagna, and meatballs. It was delicious, to say the least.
Also at the reception, we each sang the songs that we wrote for each other. My song was called “Forever Love”, hers was called “I’ll love you forever”.
Overall, everyone who attended said it was their favorite wedding they had ever been to. They said that they all wanted recordings of the songs we sang, and that we were the best-looking couple they’d seen in a long time.
Fifteen years ago feels like just yesterday…we’re so much more in love right now.
Marriage: if you do it right, it only gets better!!
