Creative Writing ~ Forget the “E”

I look into my mirror anxiously, anticipating what would occur. As I do so, I catch sound of my maid of honor hurrying into this room.

“Nora!” Lissy shouts, flashing a grin. “You look stunning! I am loving your hair. Did you know that your mom was a whiz with braids?”

Starting to talk, I was cut off by Lissy’s words.

“And how is it fair, that God thought to grant you with such glorious hair? Look at your curls! C’mon! And such a fabulous color too…cinnamon,” Lissy sighs, “and I got stuck with dumb old straw.” Lissy tugs on a straight strand of hair, as if to show this truth of such a plight.

Laughing, I say, “Oh Lissy, your hair is dazzling.”

My maid of honor tsks, not taking such bait. “Anyway, don’t worry about this old girl. I’ll probably just turn into a sad cat lady,” Lissy shrugs, “but this is your big day! And I must say, that ball gown is scoring big points in my book!”

David Tutera for Mon Cheri Spring 2017 Collection - Style No. 117292 Aurelia - off-the-shoulder tulle over organza ball gown wedding dress with illusion scalloped lace three-quarter length sleeves: At that, I look down at my gown. It was an ivory color, not too crazy, but a bit original. Dainty, flowing silk had a span from my waist downwards, though it had a simplistic aura at my waist. My glitz was shown in my studs, wrist charms, and facial constitution. And lastly, I had on a pair of pumps, in a color of crystal. “Thanks! I had so much fun trying gowns on.”

“Lissy, Nora!”

~~~

I look at Nora – smiling happily and think how lucky I am. My darling is radiant and my soul sings at our joining, though it has not fully hit my mind. Still, I can only savor my thrill at this occasion and vast ardor I hold towards my light.

On my hand and Nora’s, is a band of gold – though, my darling’s has a glinting diamond. Ivory forms a sanctuary of floating fabric around Nora, in contrast, I don a suit that hints of such things as far off stars and dark nights.

Faithful to tradition, I grasp Nora’s hand in my own. Guiding my additional half into an orbit of swirling clothing of organza, stiff fabric, and fancy garb, I pull my darling into a waltz. A crown of cinnamon lulls against my crisp top and I position my chin upon it. As our dancing forms twist and turn through those ticking clock pinnacles, I focus on details which this occasion of such formality has wrought. Diagonal to us, I spot luscious ambrosia. My own is a simplistic cocoa flavor with a tint all-around of dark mahogany. Nora’s is classical with snow fondant and frills that distinguish my light’s soul. I scan our crowd to whom rang in at our matrimony occasion and find many of my darling’s confidants – all displaying such cobalt that has Nora’s adoration. Without fail, I find my in-laws in which this woman has moist skin, sad and happy facial constitution combining.

Bringing my focus back to Nora, I say with a joking smirk, “So, am I Rom – .”Tbh:

“What? No! Cassian.” Nora nods firmly. “And I am Jyn. Cassian and Jyn top Rom and Juls any day.”

“Thus, I accordingly am Cassian to your Jyn?”

“Without fail, my captain.”

 

Journal Entry ~ Weddings

Being a romantic, I love weddings. The atmosphere, the occasion – everything about it is wonderful. When I was little, I was able to participate in my aunt’s wedding – as the flower girl! I was so excited. And a few years ago, I attended a mentor and friend’s wedding.

Even though it was simple and low cost, I thought it was the most beautiful wedding I had ever been to. Both the bride and groom washed each other’s feet during the ceremony, it was amazing how completely centered around Jesus it was.

I also thought it was hilarious and cute when after the vows and the characteristic “I pronounce you husband and wife,” all the bridesmaids and groomsmen danced down the aisle to the upbeat-playing-song. It set the precedence and it was so funny to watch some of the older couples try to dance down the aisle.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to plan. That, paired with the fact that I’m a romantic (as stated above), means that I have completely planned my wedding. Well, I’ve Pinterested it at least.

Some of my favorite types of wedding dresses are in the styles of mermaid and ball gown. I also love lace and sparkle – definitely going to be a must for me! And of course, it absolutely must be floor-length.

In terms of cakes, I want mine to have a classic look. I love so many different flavors – red velvet, chocolate, lemon, etc – that I’m not sure what I’ll pick; maybe I’ll have several flavors! I do know that I want to have petit fours though; they’re one of my absolute favorite desserts!
