Memorable Moments - Unforgettable Wedding Moment Goes To The Dog

White Rose
If I start writing my traditional romantic stories, you probably be sleeping after few lines - very little romance. Our unique romance revolves around laughing and joking around, and having fun. We are just one of those where it is impossible to be romantic - it makes me laugh and I cannot help it sometimes. I am glad that my husband (he is the romantic one) goes with it - and its fun. I still laugh until this day how my husband wanted to be original and proposed to me during the dinner, going on his knees. But that did not go very well with me because all I could think was 'just get up up up fast' and 'lets eat those pirogies I ordered' - or I will start laughing. Yeah, only me to order pirogies during this romantic and life making decision.

So finally we got married after year and a half of planning, and been married for 12 interesting years. My wedding day was beautiful. We had so much fun, and I did not shed a single tear during that day - yes I was that happy. Okay I did some shedding before wedding, as some things didn't go the way I wanted, but then on the end it didn't really matter - it wasn't the flowers I was marrying, it wasn't the dress I was marrying. Beside me being happy, my husband being happy and the rest of the family being happy - one wandering wondering dog was happy too. And the story goes....

I didn't like my so perfect bouquet of flowers florist made me. I wanted something just simple and almost looking like it was hand picked. No she had to do her way. Well during a photo shoot whenever I had a split second time I would shake my flowers to make them look a bit messy. But the florist was good, it was hard to mess them up. I tried and tried, and finally walking on the side walk, pretending to be a star (yeah I had to do that once), beating the bouquet against my dress - hurray finally I lost one rose head. Then, to my surprise, from nowhere - a small white dog shows up, eats the rose head, lifts his/her tail up and walks away happy - a moment I will never forget of all wedding moments. Too bad photographer didn't see this one coming.

....and this is my Valentine story for this year! Its small may be meaningless moment, but been in my head for years.

  3. Good story Anna! ...lol

    Lucky for me my wife does not like to make a big deal over Valentine's day. However, that said I always make it a point to let her know I remember (good thing for my age you know). Also, I don't need a yearly reminder to let her know I love her :-) I tell her often every day. Never the less .... Happy Valentines to you and your Husband. Pretty soon Matthew will be making Valentine Cards for his Mom.

  5. I sure hope your dress was way out range when he cocked his leg? Haaaaaaaa, too funny! I'm picturing you battering your bouquet all the way up the aisle, perhaps much to the concern of your prospective in-laws.. giggle. Happy Valentines day, hon.

  11. Shrinky, you are right the flower abuse didn't stop there, lol, I was trying to make it loose and messy, but like I said the florist must have used super roses and super cement to put them together. No body really noticed the mess either, and the missing rose, lol. Shrinky thanks so much for yoru comment. Always enjoy your visits my friend. Anna :)

  13. That's a priceless moment, Anna. I believe a great marriage is made of such moments. If you can't be joyous in the midst of messiness and the unexpected, you can't be joyous. Life is messy, no?

  14. Hey Anna,

    LOL I so get you! I am not romantic either (my husband is), and although I try to play along with his romantic demonstrations (out of love) I can help but to think "oh God, such a waste of money!" LOL *nodding*. But now I am getting better...I just let him do his thing (since it makes him happy).

    I loved your wedding story: it is so cute :). Thank you for sharing it with us.

    I wish you a marvellous weekend, my dear friend.

    Cheers

  16. San you are so right. I find it that the less I care and let it go, the better it is. Thanks for your thoughts San, appreciated. Anna :)

  18. Hi! At least your hubby proposed somewhere decent, as I asked my wife-to-be to marry me in the hospital car park! Mind you, the mood lighting supplied by nearby fluorescent lights helped make-up for my poor location choice.

    Take Care,
    Peter
