I went to a wedding this weekend. My best friends brother got married to a woman he has been dating more on than off since 2004. I love her! I think she’s perfect for him. He’s always loved her too but for whatever reason he would still act like a single man when she wasn’t around. They broke up a few times because of this.
He proposed to her in 2006 and they were “engaged” for awhile. He did something stupid and she took the ring off, put it back in it’s box and that was that. Then they got back together.
She saw something in him that she felt was worth fighting for. When they weren’t “together” they would still hang out. Above all else, they have been best friends.
The night before the wedding I was on the phone with him. I asked him was he done being a hoochie. He said, ” I had to put all of that aside because I can’t live the rest of my life without her.” And I knew he was serious.
The look on his face before the wedding was pure happiness. I had never seen him like that before. It was truly great to see.
He walked in that church and I saw his eyes get watery. He was nervous but he was ready.
She walked in and I saw a few tears fall from his eyes. She was beautiful and she was going to be all his forever. During the ceremony I saw them mouth back and forth to each other ” I Love You”. I felt the love between them.
They did a sand ceremony symbolizing the end of their lives and individuals being combined into one whole that can ever be separated.
They kissed, they jumped the broom and I cried! It was beautiful to see.
Now. . . I want to get married! lol. Not like this is news, but to see someone like “my brother” get married. Someone I NEVER thought would settle down. Someone who had moments where he was unfaithful. Someone who I constantly called a hoochie, got married! I can tell he’s taking this very serious. I can tell he meant those vows. I can tell he was happy with his choice to make this woman his wife. I can tell he want to spend forever with her. I want all of those things for myself. I know they’re coming for me in the near future and I’m ready for them. This wedding just made me want it NOW!
I’m a patient gal though so I don’t mind waiting. 🙂
