This loving couple has been together for 68 years and their love seems to grow with each moment.

I still cannot believe how we managed to pull this all together and I'm extremely proud of everyone that came forward to make this a reality for such a special couple. 

Trying to put into words the feeling and energy of the day is a hard one, even for me! When love is the guest of honour, it moves and stirs something deep inside you.

I feel so blessed and privileged to have been a part of such a sacred celebration. These two beautiful souls have crept into my heart in such a far out way. The love they have for life and each other is something you don't get to see every day. What a day of joy! 

Remember to love your people hard. Tell them often how much you cherish, adore, and celebrate them. 

Let love win!
