It's no secret that Mr.Golden is a police officer {i love a man in uniform}. We have a "special" relationship. Being involved with someone in the workline that he does is not easy. There is not one day that passes that I don't worry about him and pray that he makes it home safe. I used to force myself to stay awake at night while he worked just to hear his voice when he got home. That didn't last too long after strolling into work late and having racoon eyes caught up with me. Now he sends me a text message when he gets home {as not to wake me}, and it's the first thing I check for when I wake up.

Holidays are like a jack in the box because I never know which ones he'll have to work and which ones he'll spend with me. All in all, we deal with it the best way we can. I feel that it is almost inevitable that we honor his career in some sort of way with the wedding because it is a really big part of the both of us. Here's two sneak previews of how we're planning to do it:

"Fidelis Ad Mortem" {latin} Faithful Unto Death

This is a quote that the NYPD goes by. Mr.Golden and I adopted it because of it's resemblence to marriage vows. "Fidelis Ad Mortem" will be engraved into his wedding band.

Something Blue...NYPD Blue!

How about this nice little number under my dress! Of course I would have to put my mark on it though!

Is anyone else planning to incorporate careers into their wedding?

I made a garter for Amber over at the One Woman Wedding show that was the yellow police line tape.

You can kind of see it in this picture:

She's getting married this weekend so she'll probably put more up.
