Magical Moments


The highlight of the day was the time we spent taking our photos, it was such a relaxed and intimate time together. We were able to take time and reflect on the service and prepare ourselves for the ceremony.
Some of my memorable moments were waiting at the end of isle to walk to my husband, taking our pictures on the side of the road while cars drove past and hooted :) Our fun first dance, all the speeches and our combined speech.
Seeing the blood moon and the eclipse in the evening.
