God is good. Our vow renewal went better than I imagined and the entire process leading up to it was just as memorable. When we started planning this I honestly didn’t expect to have such an event but God led us in that direction and the people that I met along the way I will be forever grateful for! Cathy from The Perfect Bride in Rocky River is someone I am indebted too and she lent me this dress for the big day. The people at Rito’s Italian Bakery and Deli are some of the kindest, most talented people I’ve ever encountered! Fred at Tuxedo Junction in Beachwood is someone we will definitely refer people to, I was very impressed by their service. Maria Giallanza (and Christina) came over to do my hair and make-up and that was like a dream. Talk about exciting! My mom came over to help with the boys but ended up getting her hair and make-up done too, it was a ball! Every little detail was even better than I dreamed. The finale’ was the dinner at Papa Joe’s and everyone walked out stuffed and happy, you can’t beat that!:)It was very small, we only had a few people there and in a way I wished we had invited more. We opted to keep it as simple as possible but I have no regrets, and I am thankful for the people who attended. My brother Matt lives in Wisconsin and I rarely see him and miss him a lot. As I was walking down the isle I thought I caught his profile and asked my dad “Is that Matt?!”. I couldn’t believe my eyes and started crying and realized he was really there!! It was such a surprise! Once again I just feel so unworthy of these blessings. I am humbled and infinitely grateful!
