Wedding Pictures Pt. 2: Getting Ready (Him)

I can't believe that almost a year has passed since that happy day... it will sound cliché, but walking in the shoes of those who've said it before, now I know it's true: it seems like it was yesterday. Where has time gone? It flies by too fast...

What better time than now to get lost in memories and flash back to the past, to one joyous day I will always remember?

He, also, was getting ready for the day with a tummy full of butterflies... 

I can always trust him to choose stylish, classic, elegant shoes! (Yes, I'm a shoe fan person...)
What a dreamy suit!
Trust him to add a personal twist to his attire... he didn't wear the traditional tie, but a cravat.
I've always loved his hands... the hands of a hard-working, caring man.
Did I say dreamy before?!
He got to see a sneak-peek of our engagement pictures (they'd been taken four days before!). Not fair. :P
*Sighs*... what a man. 
My word, I can't believe this day was almost one year ago! It's still so fresh in my mind!

The Power of Prayer

   There is an eye that never sleeps
Beneath the wing of night;
There is an ear that never shuts
When sink the beams of light.
   There is an arm that never tires,
When human strength gives way;
There is a love that never fails,
When earthly loves decay.
   That eye is fixed on seraph throngs;
That arm upholds the sky;
That ear is filled with heavenly songs;
That love is throned on high.
   But there's a power which faith can wield,
When mortal aid is vain,
That eye, that arm, that love to reach,
That listening ear to gain. 
   That power is prayer, which soars on high,
Through (the Lord) Jesus to the throne,
And moves the hand which moves the world
To bring deliverance down.

Wedding Pictures Pt. 1: Getting ready (Her)

Today marks the 11th monthaversary of our wedding day... only one month to go for our first anniversary! How time flies...

Late as it is, I still have to fulfill my promise of posting some of our wedding pictures. They were taken by a school-friend of mine with whom we've had good talks and discussions and sharing on the subject. He is quite good at this business, I'm sure you'll enjoy the pictures I share.

As usual, I will follow the "no-faces" policy, so if you're interested in seeing all the pictures, let me know. [smile]

Without further ado, here's part one of the day... she's getting ready for the big occasion!

First dream come true... hair-do, check.
My all-time hair-dresser did a wonderful job with my hair!
See that ring? It looks a little lonely... will soon be joined by a second one! *-*
Finishing touches... a gift from the ladies who sewed my dress.
Surprise! Everyone's at the bride's house!
The dress also came true, thanks to a custom sewer my dad unknowingly told me about.
Lace-up back... check!
My Mum helping me dress... check!
The perfect white, not-too-high heeled, classy shoes... check!
Rhomboid net stockings... check!
My Mum placing the veil... *-*
Another dream come true... a gift from the parents of one of my bridesmaids, friends from before I was a teenager!

Next coming up... he's getting ready!

Mums and Mice

Nothing can beat my Mum's birthday wishes... she always hits the spot, every. single. year.

THO CUTE! *-* Although I keep asking myself why doesn't the piano play at the very end, when they're all happily bouncing on the keys.

What would we do without our Mums, I ask you now?
