  2. Hi!
    Found my way in here via East Side Bride and mentioned your beautiful wedding in my blog today. I hope that's allright. If I ever get married I hope I'll be half as chic as you were.
    Been here a while now and I just wanted to say that you run a very inspirational blog and I'll be back!

    Happy Weekend!
