The photos are beautiful!! We are crying! Also I just want to say thank you all photos and for your presence on the day. We LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Now that we have a little distance from the wedding, we feel like it all went perfectly and the photographs captured it so well! We feel really thankful. And also because a lot of people from Canada couldn't come, they are a perfect way to share a very happy day with them :)
