Magical Moments


My husband pulled me aside after we kissed as husband and wife, and said a prayer to bless our marriage with our feet in the sand and the beach waves was our soundtrack… this was a truly magical moment for me.

The Honeymoon


No yet, we are planning a trip to Croatia for the honeymoon in August 2020.
