Lots of little girls dream of being princesses and finding their prince, etc. I was never one of those little girls. I never played dress up or even looked at princess movies. So I have no earthly idea how I got caught up in this fairytale. When she came out and got into the horse drawn open carriage, and all those black and white horses were in front and in back of the carriage, I cried for the third time. And the stage coaches were just beautiful. I initially got excited (and cried) once Prince William and Prince Harry were traveling in the Bentley to Westminister Abbey. There is something about a man in a uniform! The second time I cried was when the 'all boys' choir was singing. They were so good, it just brought tears to my eyes.
You never really expect to see fairytales come true. That only happens in the movies or when we are playing dolls. So to see a fairytale wedding just brings back the idea that anything is possible. And isn't that what it's all about? Feeling hopeful that your dreams can come true, no matter what they are. This is what I took from this wedding.
