At Last ... My Daughter's Wedding Day Part 2 ..

Hello my dear friends,

at last, at last I can share this most beautiful and special day in my daughter Ashleigh's life!

It was perfect in every way and my heart is overjoyed and I am so touched that I was able to be a part of it.

There was a lot of laughter and many tears  ~ happy tears only ~ and much joy and love.
Friends and family came from far and near to be with her and her husband to share this most precious occasion in their new life together but that's enough from me ... see for yourselves!

This is Ashleigh and Ryan just after they met and fell in love 5 years ago.

And this is their special day ...
... September 23rd 2013.
It is true when they say that a picture speaks a thousand words ... so I will let them speak instead of me.


 This is the moment my daughter walked down the aisle ...





It was such a lovely day ... each and every single moment of it!
 I would like to thank 'Love Knots' Photography for their amazing work in capturing this very special day in such a magical way ... thank you so much!

It makes me so happy that I could finally share this so special day of my daughter's with all you lovely bloggers.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.

  10. Wow! It takes a lot for me to tear up, but I sure did! These photos and these moments are captured so beautifully. And his face when she was walking down the isle?!?! Oh my GOSH! Such love! Congrats to all of you - that's a whole lot of love to add to a family :)



  11. Thank you for sharing pictures of that wonderful event. Beautiful day and an even more beautiful couple. Your dress was perfect... I just happen to love that color. Back in the day....bridal shoes/prom shoes were white and you could get them dyed to match your dress. I had a beautiful pink pair to go with my prom dress, and probably the only time I wore them!!! You did an amazing job on your shoes. Congratulations to the new couple.

  12. Oh Karen, what a beautiful day, beautiful couple, wishing them a beatutiful life!

  13. Dear Karen ~ Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful and beautiful day with us. It was sheer joy to sit here and look at all of the lovely photos. A huge smile was on my face and happiness in my heart for the newlyweds. The photographer studio did a fantastic job of capturing this loving event. The one of the groom to be as he saw his soon to be wife touched my heart.

    May their love continue to grow with each new day and may God's blessings be on them.

    Love, hugs and congratulations ~ FlowerLady
