How many of you will have or had your dad walk you down the aisle? How many couldn't have that opportunity because of some extenuating circumstance?
Most of us had someone escort us down the aisle to our groom. Traditionally, it's our dad. Occasionally, it's our dad and step-dad. Sometimes it's another male family member or even mom or child or someone else significant in our life (I've even heard of ex-husbands filling the role!).
The video I'm sharing with you today is so beautiful. A dad dying of cancer with only months to live. Did not want to miss out on the opportunity to walk his two unmarried daughters down the aisle. And to finish the event off, renewed his vows with his wife.
I ask that you share this with everyone you know, especially those who may be in a similar situation.
It's been a little bit since I posted anything here...so I apologize! This past couple of weeks have literally been insane with work and family obligations as well as the day to day functioning of True Hearts business side. Today we performed a wedding in DeSoto, and tomorrow we will perform one in Olathe. I'll get photos added to the blog as soon as possible.
In the meantime...
Enjoy this video of a flash mob marriage proposal. It made me cry. So sweet.
So I was searching Pinterest for "Rustic Wedding Ideas" to share with you because, well, I'm a country girl at heart. I love the idea of simple, earth colors, natural looking weddings, and I hear they are all the rage! I don't know about that, but I do know that I love some of the things I saw, especially the Hunger Games themed weddings! I've gathered some blogs from around the interwebz for your enjoyment.

We say these words, or a version of them, in our wedding vows, along with "'Til death us do part," or a similar version as well. Some may know the personal issues I'm currently experiencing in my own marriage, some may not. The details are irrelevant to this blog post, but it has certainly got me thinking, and I'd love to hear from all my readers. No trolling or you will be removed, and always show your fellow comment-ers some respect for their opinion, because nobody is every 100% correct when it comes to opinion. That said, here's what I want to hear from you...
...are your vows 100%, 'til death us do part? Or, is there some point in which you say that enough is enough? What is/would be that point for you, and why? Doesn't matter which portion of your vows you would like to discuss, any of them are "open season" in this discussion.
And let the fun begin!
