The day that Terrance and I got married was a whirlwind. I had to ensure that I, 8 bridesmaids, 7 groomsmen, a puppy and our parents were ready walk down the aisle by the 4:45pm ceremony start time. At around 4:30pm someone asked me yet another question and at that point I asked everyone to please give me a few minutes alone as I prepared to walk down the aisle. I used these few minutes to reflect on the journey that I’d been on and the new one waiting for me downstairs at the ceremony.
My bridal suite overlooked the ceremony location so I looked out of the window and took a sneak peek at my future. Terrance, my husband to be, was standing at the altar yelling at guests to put away their cell phones and guests were sheltering themselves from the drizzle that was falling lightly but noticeably.
I diverted my attention back to my future husband and realized that emotionally, financially, spiritually, intellectually, and in every way possible, he and I would become one through marriage in just a few minutes. This was a moment in time that I will never forget. The nervousness of my thoughts coupled with the fact that it was drizzling on our wedding day, raised my body temperature to the point of heart palpitations and body sweats. As I stood on that balcony, in that moment, I realized that rain or shine, my life was about to change forever. However, this was a good change because I was marrying my best friend.
It’s interesting how sometimes the moments that make us sweat are the most amazing moments of all. That is why I am thrilled to partner with Dove to share their Amazing Moments campaign, which puts their Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to the test during a real woman’s surprise proposal to the love of her life. It should come as no surprise that more women are taking matters in their own hands by proposing and in this film Louisa turns the tables and asks Rob the big question. You have to watch the video for yourself to find out if he says “yes!”
You can view more at Dove.us/DoveClinicalProtection and learn how Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant provides undeniable wetness protection with ¼ moisturizers for softer, smoother skin.
How do you embrace the moments that make you sweat?
