On Our 11th Anniversary


O Lord, omnipotent and eternal God, we give you thanks and we bless your holy name. You created man and woman in your image and blessed their union, so that each would be for the other a help and support. Remember us today. Protect us and grant that our love may be in the image of the devotion and love of Christ for his Church. Grant us a long and fruitful life together, in joy and in peace, so that, through your Son and in the Holy Spirit, our hearts may always rise to you in praise and goods works.

Holy Guardian Angels, who unceasingly behold the Face
of the heavenly Father, pray for us.

  4. Okay, so I have to ask... how did you do the picture process? Did you take these professional photos before the wedding or after? I've heard of women that dress up twice - once for the wedding and once for the pictures. Getting ready twice seems like such a hassle, but if that's what must be done to get some good photos, I guess it's worth it! Love to get your input.

  6. Raising marriage to the the status of a sacrament, God invited us to be a sign and symbol of His love on Earth. You most certainly are and bless you for your holy example. What sincerity your hearts hold! Praise to His holy name for bringing you together!!! Happy Anniversary!

  10. Anniversary Blessings to you both!!! My hubby and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary on October 2 also; we were married 28 years ago on this beautiful feast day and it was a First Saturday as well! This is also our final year of homeschooling: having schooled all five children grades K-12, we count the experience of educating our chldren at home as one of the greatest graces and blessings of our marriage. Your blog has been a phenomenal inspiration and affirmation to me along this incredible homeschooling journey. God bless you for all you do for Catholic Homeschoolers and indeed, for the Church Herself!

  11. Thank you everyone, and Happy Anniversary to you too Sheila!

    Meg ~ We did all the family pictures right before the Wedding. The group photos in the Church right after, and then everyone headed over to the reception and the photographer snatched us away for about 30 minutes (at the most) to a room he had set up for these studio looking photos. In the mean time, apparently, our awesome DJ had passed out bubbles and had a path of guests that led us right to the dance floor for our first dance when we arrived - I posted a picture of that here in this post from 2008. Such great memories!!
