I can never pick favorites

I can never pick favorites.  We always laugh about it.  Favorite food?  Well, it is main dish, appetizer, or dessert?  What restaurant?  See?  So hard.

Favorites are a hard one.

What I can tell you is that I have a favorite day.  October 15, 2011.  The day I married Danny.  The best day of my life.  No question.

We had a perfect day.  Perfect for US.  Everyone had told me that they would pray for us and boy did it work (so thank you!).  It was a cool, crisp, overcast fall afternoon with patches of sun and VERY blustery.   The news had those funny little icons like WINDY for days.  And it was magical.  I know my bridesmaids were freezing during photos (sorry!!!), but for us, it was perfect.  My favorite kind of a day.  My favorite day.

All the planning and plotting and scheming and organizing was put aside.  I never once looked at a clock or a watch becauase things just happened when they happened.  All my favorite people were there with me so it was fine.  It was more than fine.  It was perfect.

People say that something always goes wrong with a wedding.  Something has to and hoepfeully it will be something little or insignificant.  But nothing did.  It was peferfect.  The perfect day.  My favorite day.

They also say it goes by in a blur and that much is true. I remember taking it all in and wanting to slow it down but knowing I couldn't, just enjoying every second of it.  My favorite songs, my favorite food, my favorite dessert, my favorite people, my favorite dress, my favorite shoes, my favorite boy.  Amazing.

Maybe the letdown will happen later but for me I don't feel let down.  I feel happy and excited and blessed.  I have memories and photos and look forward to seeing my friends again and to future weddings of friends and family so they can have their favorite day too.

Next time someone asks me my favorite, I bet I can pick.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the wedding (courtesy Blue Martini Photography):
