Magical Moments


It was a serene ceremony where God graced us with the rain even though we planned for a garden wedding however the chapel ceremony was mind blowing and really brought out the desire of a royal wedding my heart desired. Walking down the aisle with my father by my side.Exchanging our vows was life changing moment as I was giving myself to my husband to be and the emotions that came with it was huge.
Our dance as we entered the reception hall.
My parents and family being there,our friends who traveled from far to embrace the day was just humbling.
