courtship then a wedding

We had the most wonderful get away. We went to Castle Avalon for Andrew and Amanda's fairytale wedding. Once you entered the gates you drove down a long road and ended up seeing this sight.....

It was complete with dragons and knights and even a royal throne. What made it so spectacular though was the bride and groom and their wedding attendants. The guys were dressed in white tuxes with pale green vests. The young women wore pale green dresses. The bride and groom were dressed totally in white and shared their first kiss after becoming husband and wife. It was like taking part in a fairy tale, except it really happened and we were witnesses.

I always watch the groom instead of watching for the bride. I like to see his face when he sees his bride. Andrew did not disappoint me! His face lit up with a wonderful smile I won't forget. The ceremony was simple, but focused on the covenant they were making. You may question whether courtship works; let me tell you it does. Amanda and Andrew are a perfect example!

Thank-you for your friendship, and for bringing your wonderful family to the event. It meant more to me than I can say. Your photos are amazing. Thank you for sharing them.
