One Beautiful Bride - Two Very Proud Parents

After a very hectic couple of weeks, the big day finally arrived. We got up Saturday morning to gorgeous sunshine, and prayed that it would stay fine for the day. My Daughter Vicky and bridesmaid and future sister-in-law Daisy stayed the night at the wedding venue, so all hubby and I had to do was turn up and get changed. The wedding was set for 2.30 and both the Bride and Groom looked very calm and relaxed, the same could not be said for hubby and I, who said that we both felt more nervous than our own wedding day 33 years ago. Everything went so smoothly, the registrar who married them was a family friend on the Grooms side and knew them both, I think this made them more relaxed. As all mothers I had a few tears when she walked down the aisle, and I'm sure you'll agree with me Vicky looked Stunning in her dress (my son said he had to look twice to make sure it was his sister). Hubby and I were so proud of Vicky, and also David our new son-in-law who we welcome to our family with open arms, along with his own family. I'm glad to say the sun shone all day long, although having the photos taken outside was a little chilly. The happy couple are off to the Dominican Republic for their honeymoon, so it will be a bit warmer for them there.

I was  going to add the wedding card that I made for them both, but have decided that I will leave that until later. Thanks for taking the time to look today.
