Friday Flashback - Wedding Edition

While I am no Anglophile, I did have a passing curiosity with today's royal nuptials. Like any girl, it's hard not to be awed by the concept of being plucked from relative obscurity to become a living, breathing princess. And it's impossible to not like beautiful Kate Middleton. She just oozes class & sophistication which is sorely lacking from a pop culture universe populated with such fixtures as Snooki, Lindsay Lohan & Charlie Sheen. I sort of doubt we will ever hear about Kate going to rehab, videotaping non-sensical rants with her "Gods" or giving a crotch shot getting out of a limo, and for that I love her.

She looked incredible, no surprise there, but like my darling T at Curly in the City, I couldn't help think about my own wedding. While it was no royal wedding at Westminster Abbey, it was and will always remain the most perfect wedding I ever attended. It was beautiful and heartfelt and filled up with love, the way any good wedding should be. I've noticed that since I got married, any other wedding reminds my of my own: how that day felt, the love that surrounded me, the vows I took and helps renew them in my heart and mind. To that end, here's a flashback to that wonderful day, almost 3 years ago when I made the best decision of my life.

And for the record, I did manage to pull off wearing a couture bridal Kate and I do have that in common. ;)
