The Big Day

Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well! I’m taking a break from watching The Have and The Have Nots on OWN to  finish my post on the wedding I was in.

When I left off, I was telling you all about the bridesmaids dress. 
Here’s the before: 

Here’s the after thanks to Claudia! 

Claudia was able to alter the size 18 to fit my 22/24 body by adding a panel in and reconstructing the back. Worry doesn’t begin to cover how I felt! I didn’t want to make Kristen’s wedding ugly. I felt kind of awkward being the fat one when I couldn’t simply order the dress in my size. 

The wedding was beautiful! I don’t want to go in depth on the big day because it’s not my experience to detail. The couple allowed me to be involved in their very special, monumental, love changing event and I feel so honored. 
Here are pictures of the dresses that we wore as well as other photos of the bridal party.

I guess that I didn’t look too bad!

The Dance floor: 

We had a blast! 

Reflection: 
I hope thy God blesses me when a Akins hearted, dedicated, humorous, loving man. I would love to share my life with someone. I want to build and grow with someone. I hope that I am blessed to have my own wedding and marriage.  I pray that God makes me the woman that I need to be for the man that he made for me. I hope that he makes me selfless, compassionate, dedicated, rational, loving, strong, willing to compromise, willing to listen, and slow to anger. You get to a point in your life where you want to make a life with someone. I’m not only asking for sunshine, I’m asking for the strength to endure the tough, rough days. I want a love that lasts when the beauty fades, and when the money is low. I never thought that I could have  a love like that. I have a hard time believing that someone will want to spend a couple of forevers and til death does is part with me. After being in this wedding, I realized that I deserve love too. We all deserve to be loved. I never thought that I was deserving of a real love. What empowering experience! 
I hope that we all are able to experience love and happiness. I want you all to be with someone that makes your want to be better. 
I wish the Johnsons much success in their new life together! 

Until next time, 
-Nora
