Marriage is an act of will that signifies and involves a mutual gift…with whom they make up a sole family – a domestic church.” -Blessed John Paul II
JPII says it beautifully! Our domestic church began a wonderful day in January. A day filled with such Joy and Peace. We were surrounded by our parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, other extended family, and so many beautiful friends we’ve been blessed with over the years.
Being married in the Church was such a gift to us. The graces that He bestows through the vocation of marriage are such a gift! A gift we overwhelmingly experienced that day and continue to experience everyday. The day we became one has seriously been the best day of my life thus far :D
After Mass, we had so many loved ones to celebrate with - and boy was it a celebration! I had sooo much fun dancing the night away with so many faces that shared such great love with us by their mere presence.
Like I said in another post, His Will slowly but surely unraveling before our eyes and hearts.
So, on our wedding day, we said “I do.” and our precious family was born :) We thought it was a pretty big deal. So even though our celebrations were incredible it was only right that we should continue celebrating by venturing on our honeymoon the very next day in Pagosa Springs, Colorado :)
