It still surprises me, every time I see the groom's reaction to when he first see's his bride come into view on their wedding day. That glimmer of anticipation and excitement, followed by the amazement that fills the eyes, then cocooned in waves of thankfulness and certain knowing that he holds the most precious treasure on earth right there in front of him. And lastly, not forgetting love. So much love. So much so, that I gulp once in awhile in appreciation of such a moment.
It was no different with Cynthia and Alex. You could see it when when Cynthia slowly graced her feet over that long stretch of red carpet down the aisle, you could see it when Alex's fingers slid that circular piece of white gold over her finger and his voice trembled when uttering his promises of love and forever to his bride, you could see it when he lifted his cup in joy as he toasted to his new wife, and you felt it when Alex cupped her forehead to his lips and gently kissed her on the dancefloor as the night drew to a close for no other reason but because he just wanted to be closer to her.
I've always loved love, and I've always treasured romance because I know that as time marches on, it is an inevitable part of life and maturing love that little layers and pieces of the romance eventually flicker away. Which is why when I witness moments of those fireworks, when love burns its brightest, it puts a warmth in my heart. Because, like a shooting star, an appearance every now and again is usually spectacular whenever it does come around :) My wish is for all the prince charmings out there who have found their princess, to remember one thing that absolutely awes you about her, and then tell her. And for the princesses, to do the same thing for their prince. To everyone else still yet to find that one person, I hope you never forget to let the fires fan every now and again, when it is your turn :) It's never too late, and you are never too old to let your heart dance.
In the meantime, enjoy my favourites from Cynthia and Alex's wedding :)
The boys got ready downstairs from the girls :)
We then headed out for some portraits, but the rain was glued to us that day and it hung around for awhile so we couldn't stay long outside unfortunately :(
