My Wedding Day Dream Comes To Life.
Over a year ago, I knew my fiance was working up the nerve to ask me to marry him. By this time we were together six years and he was nervous about proposing at the right time and with the right ring. I say the “right ring” because he knows how important the things I envision are to me. I live for the excitement of seeing all that I desire manifested before my eyes. On August 30, 2015 while in Boston, Massachusetts we were busy helping my fiance’s niece move in her first apartment as she was preparing to start college for photography. As I was grabbing a box to head up the stairs he tapped me on the shoulder and by the time I turned around he was on one knee asking me to marry him. I immediately teared up and tried to run; not sure why I did that but it was an overwhelming feeling of joy and I just didn’t know what to do with all the wonderful feelings and thoughts I was having simultaneously. From that day I knew I wanted to honor my father who had been deceased now 13 years. So when family asked “What’s the date?” I decided I would get married on my father’s birthday. My fiance knew how important my father was to me and agreed this should be the date.
I began to write down everything I wanted and I started envisioning every detail, paying close attention to my vision more so than what I was writing to ensure every detail would be captured. My brother who had been in prison now 17 years was fighting the courts to be released and I kept praying he would be released so that he could share in this moment to walk me down the aisle. I continued to imagine as I had for years, him being released on my birthday, January 15th. My vision intensified as I continued to see him telling me that “I will walk you down the aisle”.
I received a call from my mother on January 7, 2016 informing me my brother was being released from prison on January 14, 2016. I cried and remained silent on the phone knowing the Universe was aligning everything in order for me. When I think of the day I received this call from my mother I still have moments where I tear up. My brother was officially home on January 14, 2016 a day before my birthday and five months before my wedding.
I envisioned my wedding taking place in a ballroom like setting, with sparkling glass, white roses at every table, decor in teal blue, gold, and silver. I envisioned myself wearing a Vera Wang gown, a cake with diamond like embroidery and flowers in the teal blue accent color. I saw myself walking down the aisle gracefully and full of excitement. I cried a few times envisioning all I wanted. I even asked the Universe to let everything go smoothly. To allow my vendors to be cooperative and willing to provide me the best rates possible. I told the Universe to allow my fiance and I have pure joy leading up to and after the wedding.
Let me tell you not only did I have my wedding at The Crystal Ballroom with everything I wanted available to me in my vision; I also found my wedding gown. I went to David’s Bridal and looked in the catalog. I instantly picked a dress that was exactly what I envisioned and I told them “If you don’t have this one forget it; I don’t want to try anything else on”. I knew this was the dress because it was the only page in the catalog that had been worn and ripped from the book and was falling apart. The young lady helping me informed me that the dress is highly requested and she wasn’t sure it would be available. However after 20 minutes of waiting she found the dress and it was the last one they had in stock. I tried it on and it fit me nicely.
I was worried about how I would be able to afford my dress and accessories being I was buying my dress two weeks before my wedding and wouldn’t have time to order one if I didn’t get the new dress in the store. I only had $800.00 to spare. The customer service rep asked me if I wanted to apply for credit. I began to become fearful and terrified I wouldn’t be approved. However, I instantly told the Universe “release all doubt”. I kept repeating this as she ran my credit. I was approved for a credit line of $2000.00.
After getting my dress tapered I remember putting my dress on and I looked at the tag. You would not believe it. The dress was a “White by Vera Wang”. I began to tear up because everything I wanted had come to life. The venue, decor, and all the family from out of town I was hoping would be here to support me. My aunt who is my daddy’s sister showed my at my wedding. My heart was full and I was just so happy to see her and my cousins.
I am a firm believer that if you believe you can achieve every goal and vision you set out to accomplish. I will never stop envisioning my desires or stop believing in the things God can and will do for me. I keep my vision boards close. I keep my thoughts of the positive things I am putting in the Universe closer. I know dreams do come true when you believe.
