Magical Moments

 

Highlight of the day walking down the aisle with my father & i only had eyes for my future husband. i was so excited and could not wait to marry Ivan.

We also had a random owl present during the ceremony, sitting on a branch above us!!

The weather held up, as we had thunderstorms all week leading up to our big day, and it turn into a beautiful Summer afternoon and evening.

When our guests lit up sparklers and stood around the dance floor underneath the stars was a very special moment
