130. The wedding
There were pretty flowers at the front.
There was beautiful organ music playing.
The church was full of people dressed up nicely.
Everyone was waiting to see the beautiful bride walk up the aisle.
A hush, and intake of breath.
There she was!
Oh, she was so beautiful!
She had a lovely, long white dress with pretty lace and beads.
Her hair was swept up off from her face.
There were curls flowing down her back.
Instead of a veil, she had little flowers in her hair.
Her bouquet of tiny flowers was very, very pretty.
Her dad looked very proud of her.
He looked just a little sad, too.
At the front of the church, the groom stood waiting.
He had a beautiful tender smile on his face.
He took his bride's hand as her dad left her there.
They smiled at each other.
The minister read, prayed and offered some words of advice to the lovely couple.
Someone sang a pretty song.
The groom slipped the simple wedding band on the bride's finger.
She struggled a little to put a band on his finger.
Pretty soon the minister said they were now husband and wife.
We all stood, as they walked down the aisle
to live the rest of their lives together as Mr. and Mrs.!
