The dress
Was a dusty pink
And fit like
A dream.

It was my wedding day
And I chose to be
An unconventional bride
With a pink dress
And an intricate updo
That reminded me
Of my grandmother.

The diamond on my finger
Caught the early morning light
And broke it
Into many points of light.

He chose well,
I chose well,
We chose well.

Two souls cast out
Into the ocean
Of society and
Somehow we managed
To find each other,
To recognize the light
In each other,
To know not to let go
Of each other.

I love him
And I know
He loves me.

I placed the birdcage
On my head,
Slipped on the heels
That were neither
Too high nor too low,
And I took one last look
In the mirror.

Pleased at the woman
Who stood before me,
I picked up my bouquet,
Whispered a quick prayer
And walked into my

I love him
And I know
He loves me.

That day is especially meaningful and yours was as well. You depict it in such detail that one can only be happy for you and the words that bring to us your joy.
