Magical Moments



A picture tells a thousand words and I cannot express enough, how joyful and happy every ticking second felt.
Highlight for me was waking up on Sunday morning the 2nd of December 2018, knowing this is the day that God has made and I get to say my vows before God, host of heaven, friends and family to the man who God has made just for me.
Ending off the day was spectacular for me. We ended the night with Sky lighters, Sparklers and Lanterns.
Tearing at how wonderful every moment of time unfolded. From getting dress and waiting in anticipation, to feeling afraid it will continue raining and finally when I walked out the room, the rain stopped and the sky cleared as the sun came out. Just as I walked down the aisle. Walking down the aisle, I smelt the fresh rain on all the fresh flowers and trees.
Being handed over to my father, my heart burst with joy. Seeing my father cry, tears of joy. Walking down the aisle felt like I walked on clouds, pure love and dreamy. My dad handed me over to my husband and I froze, thinking I would feint having so much excitement inside of me. The moment I said I Do. The rest was fun and exciting.
We reached our main goal, in making each and every moment memorable being full of life that it made each and every one of our guest feel like they were in a magical fairy tale story.
