Somehow I always managed to avoid the rain when we made our vows three years ago today, even though it did rain that day. We stayed dry as my curls got coiffed in South Padre Island in the morning, as we took photo shoot opportunities during an unexpected delay (story for another day), and even as our Mariachis and Margaritas flowed at the reception.
I say “somehow”, but I know it was my Mom taking care of us on our long-awaited day. And what a glorious day it truly was.
The number three holds a spiritual significance, particularly in the Trinity. Blessed Fulton Sheen wrote the classic, “Three to Get Married.” Here are a few words of wisdom…
“In all human love it must be realized that every man promises a woman, and every woman promises a man that which only God alone can give, namely, perfect happiness. One of the reasons why so many marriages are shipwrecked is because as the young couple leave the altar, they fail to realize that human feelings tire and the enthusiasm of the honeymoon is not the same as the more solid happiness of enduring human love. One of the greatest trials of marriage is the absence of solitude. In the first moments of human love, one does not see the little hidden deformities which later on appear.”
― Fulton J. Sheen, Three to Get Married
After the wedding, I produced “Our Story” – it’s a compilation of images and music through the years. Follow us from our childhood, our meeting, courtship, engagement, wedding, honeymoon, and settling in as Newlyweds at home. Enjoy!
