PERSONALLY YOURS: My moment as mother of the groom

Published: Saturday, July 20, 2013 at 09:03 AM.

I smiled, as the tears streamed down my cheeks, all the way down the aisle.

I blew my son a kiss as I entered my pew where my daughters waited, and he smiled.

My son never stopped smiling, even as his bride entered in her gorgeous gown, on the arm of her father.

He never stopped smiling as they held hands and exchanged vows; nor did she.

As they exited down the aisle, I thought to myself, "I have never seen a happier couple. I have never seen two people more thrilled to look forward to spending the rest of their lives together. I have never seen two people more right for each other."

We all danced the night away at The Lodge at Welch Allyn, as we all bestowed our blessings on this glorious love union.

My son and I danced to Elton John's "You Are Blessed" after Elizabeth and her dad danced to "What a Wonderful World."
