Magical Moments


Walking down the isle and seeing my future husband, while holding onto my dads arm. I could see both of them were emotional.
Our photo session after the ceremony was exceptional, we were blessed with a thunderstorm and rain, that cleared up just in time to capture a beautiful rainbow.
