A June Bride’s Story
A bride’s most lucky month is fast approaching!
June is the most popular month for weddings – when every woman’s dream of walking down the aisle, wearing the best gown, holding a lush bouquet of flowers and getting ready for her eternal vow with the one she truly loves most often takes place.
This is Jenny’s story. Like most women, Jenny had since her childhood dreamed of her wedding day. Dressed in a beautiful gown of white and gold, as she had seen before in romantic movies, she had visualized her dream wedding many times before – but the guy was always just a blur. Through the years, she endured several relationships, some short term and some which lasted years but then she met James, who was just perfect for her. After a while, they both decided to settle down for good. When James proposed, Jenny’s wedding day dreams as a little girl began to turn into reality.
She wanted her wedding to be the best, and perfect in every detail. Of course, they had both already planned on the best month for their wedding, June. Getting married in June is popular for a number of reasons, but it’s also considered to be lucky. She had chosen the best gown as she had dreamed before in white and gold, which well-suited the motif of the same colors. James had chosen the best for himself, as well, wanting it all to be perfect for Jenny. Both of them had agreed on a church, planned for the reception, and suggested clothes for both of their parents and invited friends.
But there was something lacking in Jenny’s dreams, something very important to this once-in-a-lifetime event that had also always been a blur, her wedding jewels. She pondered about this and consulted James for his opinion. They both agreed that their jewelry must be the best quality and that it should mean something special, too. Being from South Dakota, James knew about Black Hills Gold as he had seen it worn by friends and family members his entire life. Jenny, too, knew of Black Hills Gold from her visits to the Black Hills as a child during her family’s summer vacations.
It had become a modern world since those little-girl dreams of Jenny’s past, with today’s fashion moving at the speed of light. But even as she loved the contemporary cuts of Landstroms jewelry, she even more admired it for its tradition, steeped in American history. James and Jenny had decided: matching Black Hills Gold wedding bands made by Landstroms. And their plans were complete.
That special day in June soon arrived and everything went just as planned, making Jenny’s child-hood dream a reality. And years later James and Jenny are still happily married, glad that they applied all that extra effort to make everything in their wedding perfect, especially setting their wedding date in June. As the song goes, “Oh, they say when you marry in June you’re a bride all your life; and the bride groom who marries in June gets a sweet-heart for a wife.”
