Love- “It’s got to be that can’t-eat, can’t- sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, World Series kind of thing.” It’s been a while since I saw that movie with that quote in it. If you are completely stumped it’s from “It Takes Two.” I LOVE this quote- it’s so fun and what a cooler way to describe the unexplainable feeling of Love.
I know my fiance is going to have my head being that we are still in the NFL playoffs, it isn’t even the Super Bowl yet and I am relating romance to the World Series. However it is only 50 some days until the Phillies are in Clearwater, Florida for spring training! But I digress!
I don’t think there is a more down to earth quote that we could relate to than the one mentioned above. I am extremely guilty of being a hopeless romantic. I am recently engaged and I probably could be engaged for quite some time before I actually figure out what it is that I want at my wedding! But it’s OK- because although I am taking the planning process slow, I still get those jitters that I had when Kevin and I went on our first date, or when I decided to ask him out because he was taking to long to ask me himself. Haha. That’s what you want in your marriage right? Even when you’re celebrating 25 or 50 years of being married! If you can still look at each other and your heart goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast. You know that is something special!
I have chosen a few pictures that when I look at them, I know both bride and groom have butterflies floating around in their stomachs… are feeling those same exciting jitters as they felt on their first date and are experiencing an “over the fence-home run” moment!
Every single one of these couples embodies romance! The excitement as the bride walks down the aisle to her groom and takes his hand- it’s like an instant jolt of electricity running through them as they exchange vows and become husband and wife.
Even the silly pictures; the way that the couple glides down the street or gaze into each others eyes what seems like an eternity, when really it is only seconds! That moment that separates you both from the “real world” so to speak- when nothing else seems to matter but the embrace that you are currently in.
The Jewish religion is simply beautiful- the traditions carried through the ceremony and into the reception are extremely moving! See below, one of my first Jewish Orthodox weddings! I Love the way that the photographer captured this amazing moment.
We all want that feeling of excitement, passion and mystery for our significant other- I get it everyday! I hope you experience it after reading this or will find Love & Romance as you embark on your journey through 2012.
Cheers to 2012 and finding romance!
