She swept into the room in all her glamour and grace and took a deep breath, “I can’t wait to see him” she exclaimed. She sat while getting her makeup done taking small deep breaths, playing with her engagement ring, waiting anxiously to see her love; to feel his arms wrap around her, to sign the paper that would officially call him hers. The moment came and her mom beamed at her before she stepped into the elevator. I think she stopped breathing at that moment.
He stood on the sidewalk, taking deep breaths not able to hide his excitement. Soon his bride would be walking towards him. He waited for what he said felt like hours. And then he felt her touch, warm and full of love. Those eyes sparkled just for him, his world. And he wrapped his arms around her and there they stood, together, wrapped in each other without a care in the world.
They, before all their family and friends, officially became husband and wife in the beautiful townhall of Gent, Belgium. They beamed at each other, so happy that this day had come. After, Jelger’s dad surprised them with horns as they left the hall, where his mom, sister-in-law, and brother had learned to play. His dad was so proud to give a gift so personal to his son and his beautiful new daughter-in-law.
After a boat cruise around the city, we whisked off to the beautiful and elegant Carelshof where emotional speeches were said, about them and their relationship and their soon departure to Vancouver, Canada. Then, they danced. Hand in hand, cheek to cheek, once again wrapped in each other.
