My name is Candice Alicia Rasool and on the 15/03/2014 I married the man of my dreams, Junaid Rasool. Junaid and I know each other from primary school and always were in love but as we got to high school we went our separate ways and in the year 2006 it was only God that brought us back together. We dated for seven years and Junaid finally decided to propose. He knows me better than I know myself. We're truly destined for each other. I can not imagine my life without him. I love him with all my heart.
Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Everything was perfect! For the morning of our wedding we all were relaxed and took in every second of the day. I enjoyed the time with my family and friends getting my hair and makeup done. Then it was time for me to put on that amazing wedding dress and all the beautiful jewellery. Once it was all done I looked in the mirror and I was shocked because that was the exact vision I had for my wedding day. I was so excited for Junaid to see me walking down the aisle. I couldn't wait. When I got to the Church the nerves started kicking in. I tried so hard not to cry because I did not want to mess up my makeup lol.
When I entered the Church and saw Junaid standing at the end of the aisle looking at me, I had a feeling I will never forget. It all felt too surreal. I could see the love in his eyes as he smiled at me. I couldn't wait to be in his arms. As we said our vows to each other I thought back of everything we went through together, all the ups and downs. This was it! We finally did it and it was all so worth it.
Our reception was beautiful. The decor was perfect, the music was perfect, the food was sensational and we really appreciated everyone taking the time to celebrate this very special day with us. We enjoyed every moment of it but we also couldn't wait to go on our honeymoon lol. If it weren't for our Lord Jesus none of this would of been possible. He has been with us through all the planning, the stress and ultimately our big day. We would also like to say thank you to our family for helping us with everything and making our day special and to the love of my life, Junaid, thank you for choosing me and making me the happiest woman in the world. I love you with everything I have and I can't wait to make more special memories with you.
If I could go back and do it all again, there's nothing that I would change. It was my fairytale dream come true!
