Magical Moments


“Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite.”
The entire day was magical in a way I can't explain, with so many moments i will cherish forever.

I am so grateful to have had all my closest family and friends there to help me get ready for my big day, especially my mom who made every moment of the planning process and the day so special and amazing.

With a late afternoon ceremony we took photographs before and this made it very different and exciting to see each other. "The Reveal" has to be my best moment along with having my dad walk me down the aisle towards my soulmate. Words can't describe the feeling when your heart is racing with excitement to marry the man of your dreams.

When Michael came to me for the first time, he did not not have to say a word because the emotion in his face said it all.
Surrounding us were all the groomsmen and bridesmaids watching from a distance, which made the moment even more special. I will never forget that feeling.

The Ceremony was more than I expected and just when I thought it could not get any better the reception blew us away.
We had the entire hall in tears with Michael's speech, (i can still hear the words), Our first dance (which for that moment, felt like time had frozen and we were the only two people in the hall), the daddy daughter dance was surreal and the night continued with traditional dances and the garter/ bouquet toss. Everything about that day was nothing short of Fairy-tale :)

It was overwhelming how it flew by, but with so many heart warming memories to live with, We are Lucky :)

The Honeymoon


We went to Maldives for honeymoon. The perfect word would be .... WOW!

Clear water, blue sky, white sand, sun and Romance. Staying at the Chalets in the water with our very own butler, breakfast in bed, snorkeling all day, and just time spent together made this trip unbelievable.
I would not have imagined it any better. It was just Perfect
