A BEAUTIFUL DAY......


It was the most beautiful day ever imaginable, in every way possible.  From beginning to end, our 'world' was filled with love, laughter, fun, friendship and music. Family and friends arrived from far-flung corners of the the earth to share in their special day. As parents of the bride, we quietly reflected  on how both bride and groom shone, all day and all night long, the deepness of their love wrapping itself tightly around everybody present. Theirs was the joining of two beautiful people, simply born to be together. The memories are so, so sweet..............



...................... the beautiful bride almost ready,


................ flowers for their hair,


................ little flowergirl hoop,


........... usherettes' corsages,


........ brides gorgeous hand-tied flowers waiting in water,


........ chief bridesmaid's beautiful flowers,


......... tables simply ready,


............... and the plan, so we know where to sit,


........................ cupcakes, one hundred and twenty in all!


 ......... spring flowers on tables in shades of purple and blue,


.....................  'One Day  Like This'!


................ dear little Sophie collecting dried flower petals, thrown as they walked back down the aisle,


.................... such beautiful memories,


 ................... playing peepo with mummy and daddy,
 

................ enjoying good food and wine together,


 .................... Sophie's little hoop left to rest, now it's time to play!


....... watching the ducks on the lake,


 .................. catching up with friends,


........... our younger daughter's flowers resting while she eats,


................ time for the outdoors,


................ a stroll around the lake,


................. outdoor photo shoot, between courses, to capture the light,

...........  simply beautiful fresh flowers,


..................... the band getting ready,

 

............... such a special tune,


We didn't need the sun to shine, you did that for us! We love you both so dearly! You're together for the rest of your lives!

Oh, how lovely... I'm all weepy now... LOL! What a splendid day. And such splendid photos! So glad you shared so many with us, Ros. The bride was beautiful...I love her gown, such wonderful elegance. And such scrumptious flowers! VERY summer feel, those flowers. And Miss Sophie...*sigh*... what a sweetie. She looks so pretty in her party dress and the bolero is perfect. Wow... Hope the happy couple are off on honeymoon celebrating... And I'm sure you're relaxing now between all the happy memories. :o) ((HUGS))
