I always cry at weddings...

By PaisleyJade - Sunday, August 22, 2010

Yesterday, Symon and I attended the wedding of our beautiful niece.

It's hard to find words to describe the day - the bride was stunning (and the groom was rather dashing as well), and the wedding was absolutely beautiful and so well planned.

Two young people making vows to each other, before God, with their family and friends watching - I always cry at weddings.

The reception was held at Mantells - a very stylish place, with food that was divine!

Congratulations to Alexandra and Hans!!!  You are an amazing and beautiful couple (not to mention that Han's makes the best coffee ever!).

Here are a few photos from the day...  

And after that amazing wedding, I tried to take a romantic photo of us both driving home together, but alas... I told you we aren't normal!
