It happens when you wrap your arms around him in your wedding gown. When you take his hand before walking down the aisle. When you lean into his embrace and let him sweep you across the dance floor. In these moments, you are holding on to the first man who held you. The first man who loved you. The first man whose joy was made whole by your smile.
So wrap your arms around him a little tighter. Hold onto his hand a little harder. Dance with him a little longer. Because you will both grow older and the memory of this night will fade, but these photos will remain to remind you what it feels like to be treasured.
