On a very special day

This is my favourite professional shot from our wedding day - I think it was an accident but the sunflare, coupled with our positions & expressions just lifts my heart.  I don't remember this bit of the photo-taking, before we moved down to the grass and the trees.  The weather was almost perfect for a wedding & the mass of photos that go with it.  And the two days of torrential rain made the grass glorious!!

Looking back today, I see two young people, in love & optimistic about the future.  I can see exhoes of this day in our photos from more recently.  Five years & two children later, I still lean on you and we still laugh together.  I hope we never lose the joy and comfort of just being together.  I love you more today than I did then and for many more reasons.  I'm excited to look forward to our future together.  April 2012 xxx

Back in February, I had some 5x7 photo credits going out of date so I ordered reprints of some of my favourite photos from Isaac's early days and our wedding.  This shot is the only wedding photo we have on display in our home - must do something about that! - because it's my absolute favourite.  From a distance it's stunning but almost anonymous; when you get closer, you can see the little details that make it representative of us together.

I stuck to a colour palatte of grey, yellow and white for this page as part of challenge 4 from Shimelle's scrapbooking weekend.  Initially, I tried out navy, blue or purple as my third colour but I couldn't find anything inspiring in my stash.  I had some bright ideas for white accents and found some vellum printed with text from 1 Corinthians 13 to use as well.  After that, it came together pretty quickly and I used up quite a few things that I've had hanging around for far too long!
