10 days.

10 days.

10 days until I marry the man Christ has chosen for me.

10 days until I don a beautiful ivory dress, veil and my grandmother’s pearls.

10 days until I will think of those that I wish, so badly, could be there to see me wed.

10 days until something will go wrong.

10 days until I realize that there is nothing I can do about things that go wrong.

10 days until my favorite girls walk before me, paving the way to my groom.

10 days until Joseph and I wash each other’s feet, beginning our lives together with an act of service.

10 days until we eat, drink and dance with those we could not imagine our lives without.

10 days until Joseph and I dance our first dance as husband and wife to a song that brings tears to my eyes.

10 days until my name become Jessica Meghan Edwards Ackerman.

10 days until we drive off into the sunset, on our way to Folly Beach for a week of relaxing and adaption.


  1. 10 days until my precious baby girl becomes a wife! I love you, beautiful girl. I pray you day will be blessed with memories that warm your heart when the two of you are old and gray and are reminiscing in the rockers while you watch your grandchildren play in the front yard!

  2. Ah! This made me cry, Jessica! And made me think of my wedding day, which was almost 6 years ago. The years go by so quickly and before you know it you're wondering what happened. Cherish these moments and cherish each other- always. <3
