Every girl dreams of the day she gets to wear a white gown and dance the night away with her prince charming. However, when it came to my wedding, nothing like that happened.
I am a proud wife of a United States Army soldier. We sacrificed our dream wedding in order to be together. Due to circumstances involving my husband occupation as a soldier, we had to have a court house wedding. No family. No friends. No white dress. No first dance. No honeymoon. Don’t get me wrong, that was one of the happiest days of my life! I got to marry my soul mate, my prince, my hero. But we have always dreamt of a beautiful ceremony and reception to celebrate our marriage with friends and family. Also, our court house wedding robbed our family of their dreams as well. My dad didn’t get to walk me down the aisle. My mom didn’t get to help me put on a beautiful dress. Our grandparents didn’t get to see us say our vows.
My husband and I decided to hold a vow renewal on our two year anniversary back in our home state, so we can reaffirm our vows in the presence of our friends and family and celebrate our marriage. However, being a military family and being that both my husband and I are attending college, funds are quite limited. I created this fundraiser in hopes that some generous people would contribute to our vow renewal. All funds will go towards our vow renewal and any leftover funds will go towards a honeymoon.
Please help make a soldier and his wife’s dreams come true!! Thank you and God Bless.
