She had seen all the movies and her mother had read her all the stories. The ones where the handsome Prince whisks his beautiful Princess away to live in a royal castle happily ever after. Every night, as a little girl, she prayed for her Prince to come and to someday live out her very own fairytale.
Fast-forward to today…the scent of late Summer filled the air and everything the sun touched offered a soft romantic glow. A single poised butterfly fluttered about, lingering a little longer around the large hydrangea bushes. Birds sang their happy song, a melody that celebrated the events to come. The scene was nothing short of magical. Something that had come alive straight from the pages of a storybook illustration.
As Catherine stepped into her gown and her mother straightened her lace capped sleeves, they both shared an understanding smile. There she stood, the real life princess in the midst of her long-awaited wedding day. She had read the stories, recited them even, but today was the very beginning of her own story. Their story.
Themis straightened his bowtie, stood tall and prepared for the moments that lay ahead. This prince was more than just charming… He was kind, honest, loyal and loving. He far outweighed any fairytale character she had every read about.
There they both stood. Man and wife, Princess and Prince. He had been the answer to her prayers, the fulfillment of her dreams. Today was a day fit for royalty. The beginning of her very own happily ever after.
