On June 16th...we both said yes
How appropriate to have our "By Invitation only" June post 's theme to be our "dream wedding"since June 16th is the day I was married in my village of Clermomt Dessous, France.
As I am envisioning my dream wedding, I cannot help but reflect on my own wedding, twenty something years ago... a simple elegant wedding in my 12th century church, followed by a reception in the most extraordinary setting, a castle in ruins dating back to the 1300s. It was quite a task to bring this castle to life by clearing up an access to the castle, tenting a ceiling for rain was in the air, bringing hundreds of candles, an evening I shall never forget...
Please follow me in my imaginary wedding.
