Magical Moments


There is so many highlights and memorable moments of our wedding, but these are the most special moments that I will forever cherish & keep in my heart.
-My Mother helping me put on my wedding dress we were both so emotional it was truely a dream come true.
-Having the privilege of my two grandma's there to share in our happiness.
-The moment my Dad saw me for the first time we were both fighting to hold back the tears, I can promise you there is nothing more special than your Dad looking at you in that way being so proud that he can't help himself but to cry.
- The moment my husband turned around and saw me walking up to him he had tears in his eyes and couldn't stop smiling.
