Magical Moments


I would say the highlight of the day, was seeing my Big nana after everthing it took us to get there. The next I would say was seeing all the work Sean my husband and his groomsmen had done on all the Decor and it looked just how I wanted it to look. Another moment was when my son gave me away, The smile he had on his face was something I will never forget. The next was when my daughter and myself did a dance after she caught the bouquet.

The Honeymoon


No honeymoon for now, but it’s okay we got our dream wedding.
Reason being Sean got retrenched, Just after we Finalized and paid for the last bits of the wedding. So there was no turning back and we wouldn’t have anyway.
