Ten years ago today I married my wife at St. Luke’s Church in Irving, TX. The Mass was glorious – we had seven servers, a full polyphonic choir, a Novus Ordo Mass in Latin with our favorite priest, Fr. James, saying Mass versus orientem.
The reception, attended by the largest gathering on both sides of our families in years, was held at the University of Dallas cafeteria. We had a live polka band (everyone should have a live band that plays music everyone can dance to) and the desserts were delicious. One of my brothers-in-law made a chocolate cake that used ground nuts for the flour. I don’t think I have ever had anything so rich in my life.
Ten years later, we can point to our eight kids (two in heaven) and say “See how much I love you?” My wife has never lost faith in me even though I frequently lose it in myself, especially trying to run a Catholic bookstore.
Happy Anniversary, Sweetie! I would do it all over again if given the chance. You are a wonderful blessing to me and all our kids.
Those of us who were there would like to attest to the loveliness of the occasion, the gorgeousness of your bride and the fun that was had by all (just the word “polka” is a hoot). I didn’t get any of the cake though, so I want the recipe now! Congratulations you two!
Happy Anniversay!! I’ve enjoyed joining the St Cecelia Cantorum and getting to know you and your extended family. Hope the day is wonderful for you and your wife. Many blessing be showered on the two of you today and always!
May God grant you many years in peace, health and happiness!
Congratulations! What a beautiful family, you have truly been blessed. Many happy returns of the day! God bless you and your family.
Congratulations on your Anniversary! and such a beautiful family. I am confident there is a priest or sister in that photo somewhere!
Many more blessings!
