High Altar at Notre Dame Paris

by Weekend In Paris

DSC_0143Mr. Weekend In Paris and I had our 25 year old marriage blessed today with a mass on the high altar at Notre Dame Paris. The officiant was the same priest who married us and our witnesses were our dear friends, Terry and Nancy Sheffield. Napolean was installed on this same altar so there was some incredible history we stood upon while reciting our prayers and repeating our vows.

Yes, I teared up before, during and after the ceremony. Who wouldn’t? Finding the love of your life, being married for 25 years and sharing the special occasion with great friends on sacred ground inside Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral was beyond my wildest imagination. Never did I dream such a thought.

Thank you Mr. Weekend In Paris for all the love and for making my dreams come true! Thank you Father Tucker, the best Catholic priest besides Pope Francis! And thank you to Nancy and Terry Sheffield for reading at our mass and for standing up for us all these years, but especially for today.

This is my first time commenting, but I read your blog almost every time I get an email update. I just had to tell you (as a style blogger) that I love your re-wedding dress. Congratulations on 25 years and hoping we’ll see a post for 50! Many thanks for sharing your Frenchventures with us!
