A Special Surprise


Yesterday was our 20th anniversary and Alfred surprised me by asking me to marry him all over again and renewing our vows! He had been planning this for months while overseas and had his family and mine help keep it a secret and make it a reality since he couldn't physically be here until the last minute.


It was truly a surprise and not what I had expected at all! When we first married, it was done at the courthouse. So it was nice to have our family and a few friends with us this time to celebrate.


Today I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have a husband who will go out of his way to make me feel special and loved! The pictures are out of order (thanks Blogger!), but capture the event just the same.



Alfred is about to tell me what's going on...


On bended knee, he asks if I will marry him all over again. 



Of course, I say yes!



During the ceremony...


 Cutting the cake...



Holding hands...


Me and my love...


During the ceremony...


Break out the bubbly...


I just love this man!




Kissing the bride...


True love..
