As Time Goes By. . .

Tomorrow is our 8th wedding anniversary. I can't believe how quickly it has gone by. I thought I would share a few pictures from our special day. This is where we got married and had the reception. Pasadena City Hall Courtyard. It is a very old and beautiful building. We like to take the kids there to run around and explore while we reminisce. Now truth be told, we don't have any digital photos of our wedding. I think it was just as digital was becoming more the norm. We did have an excellent photographer though and a beauitful album to cherish.

A quick story, while we were saying our vows 2 white doves flew over us. This was not planned and we didn't bring them. They were in the rafters and the whole wedding stopped for a moment when we heard and saw these beautiful doves fly over us above. Only one person got a photo of this. We think it was a sign as we have been truly happy and blessed in our marriage.

There is a large fountain in the middle of the courtyard and the reception was there with tables surrounding it.

To this day the pure aesthetics of the place just take my breath away.

Thanks for sharing in my stroll down memory lane. As I had mentioned once before, the song I walked down the aisle to is on my blog, The Scent of Love, if you would like to listen. While 8 years may not seem like much, we know it is only the beginning. My parents celebrate their 49th in next week and my in-laws just had their 41st yesterday. We are so fortunate to have such amazing examples of how it can be done and still very much in love.
