And now, here we are, setting out on that most special of special months… the month of L-O-V-E. Remember those grade school years, when February was all about Valentine’s cards, and who was tucking special cards and treats into your little Valentine’s shoebox at school? There’s nothing quite like celebrating the joy of falling in love. And with that in mind, we’re sharing love stories this week on the porch at BelleView. Since I’ve shared my own before, I thought I’d borrow this little wedding-themed interview that ran on Rachel’s blog when her bestseller, The Wedding Dress, was new on the shelves.
You may recognize a face or two in this little story:
From Rachel Hauck’s Beautiful Brides Series, celebrating The Wedding Dress:
Besides being a fab author, Lisa Wingate is one of my fellow Belles over on SouthernBelleView. Love blogging and associating with this woman.
About her wedding dress, Lisa writes:
One of the neatest things about our wedding was that my dress was remade from my mother’s dress. She is an incredible seamstress, and may hours of tender loving care went into creating that dress.
(RH: Lisa’s mom Sharon in the original dress. I love the wide skirt!)
Another special event at our wedding day didn’t happen during the wedding, but during the reception afterwards.
I had so much fun doing that interview about my wedding dress and talking about the love stories in my family! So what about you? Is there a special love story in your family? Leave a comment and share!
