Well I guess that's the question, that's the one thing I think is not the easiest to answer, I did thing's a bit differently and had my girls walk into the chapel first to a pre recored little letter I wrote to my husband playing to a rendition of a thousand years violin, seeing me in that moment as I stepped in the door, the glistening in his eyes will forever be with me, every time we watch our video and the pre recording starts he still gets that glisten to his eyes, its those little moments that will stick to you forever.
Yes we did go on honeymoon, we were blessed enough to the Maldives, a resort called Hurawalhi it was unbelievable we created such amazing memories that will stay with us forever.
