I do?..they did

[ The beautiful bride ]

I am bursting at the seams with love right now after having the honour and privilege of attending my gorgeous girlfriends wedding on the weekend just gone. As Mr M & I (& 2 of my other girlfriends) were driving to the ceremony I got overwhelmed with emotion at how special it really is to be a guest at a wedding. The bride & groom are saying we pick YOU to witness us promise forever, and we pick YOU to share our un wavering love. It’s just beautiful and awe inspiring to be a part of. They wed at a picturesque winery with the sun just right and as Sarah came down from the hill the gasps that went off throughout the guests was amazing as we all obviously were thinking the same thing – she was breathtaking. And I mean breathtaking. The glow of a bride goes beyond true beauty and I certainly shed a few tears, how could I not. The day could be summed up in one word…perfect. The reception was equally beautiful and the best man stole the show with his fantastic speech. All in all it truly was a perfect night and I wish Sarah & Joel all the love, light and happiness as they grow old together.

I leave you with a quote I love, about love, and some pictures from their incredibly special day.

"Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love" - Leo Buscaglia

  14. Thank you so much for that comment ;]

    How funny, I went to a wedding this weekend, such fun! And yes, I love new babies. I'm Filipino so there are ALWAYS babies running around everywhere, but since I moved out for college I've been missing out.
