Magical Moments


My absolute favorite moment was when my dad walked me down the aisle, being brave and gave me away to my husband to be. Definitely one of the highlights was saying our vows to each other and tying the knot with "I do"
I loved sharing this day with all our family and friends and sharing our first dance with everyone.

The Honeymoon


We went on a Minimoon to Sun City, this was a gift from my parent's. We will be going on honeymoon to Italy in September 2019
