Well, Hello 20!   No, 20 isn’t my age of birth it’s how many years I’ve been married! Yup, Today I say hello to being married for twenty years.

On my wedding anniversaries I love slipping into my wedding dress. YUP!…and once again it still fits  😀

Here is a past post where I have reshot myself in my wedding dress: http://blog.latreniabryant.com/rewind-my-bridal-dress/

Twenty years ago I said “I do” to the best man ever.  The ride hasn’t always been smooth but once the road settles and the sky turns blue you start to see clearly that having a great marriage isn’t rocket science. It’s a choice. I often sit back and think how lucky I am to have chosen wisely. I definitely made the right choice. I love my husband and I have NO DOUBT he loves me.

After we wed I said goodbye to my family and lastly we stopped by to say goodbye to his family. Our small rental car in the above photo was packed with wedding gifts and a 13 in. television.. we were off to San Bernardino, California to start our adventure as a married couple. By the way… I STILL have those pants, that jacket and the chain belt… LOL. I’ve been told I don’t like throwing things away..I guess that’s a true statement.

My aunt who raised me paid $500 for my wedding dress. She passed away Jan. 1, 2015. Every time I put it on I think of her and how hard she worked to make sure I had a good life. Below are this years photos I shot in my wedding dress that I originally wore 20 years ago.
