The church would’ve been fine, but this fit
in way better.”
The wedding had more than just
a vintage feel to it. The bridesmaids
wore flapper dresses, the groomsmen
wore suspenders and bowties, and the
newlyweds rode to and from Giddings Stone
Mansion in Michael’s Model A car.
“We wanted it to be different,” says
Marilyn. “We didn’t want it to be plain
Michael agrees. “I wanted something
different, and that fit with us.”
At the end of the day, both Michael and
Marilyn couldn’t have imagined a more
perfect wedding. Marilyn reminds other
brides that it’s not the details that make
your wedding day perfect.
“During your wedding, if nothing goes to
plan, just keep in mind what it’s all about,”
Marilyn says. “It’s just about the fact that
you are marrying the love of your life.
That’s what I had to keep reminding myself.
That it doesn’t have to be perfect because
looking back on it, it’s going to be perfect
because you’re married.” i
