Matthew and Ariana, true love, truly beautiful

November 9, 2013, a very special day indeed. My dear friend and  little sister in faith was to marry her best friend and love of her life, Matthew. As she got made up by the fabulous Patricia, of Makeup by Trish, she glanced at her face and I venture to say in her head and heart she knew that this was the last time looking at herself as a single person…

Ariana and her family share a unique bond. The love shown towards each other is nothing less than God sent. This handkerchief reads ” Mom, Although I am now grown up Dressed in lace and pearls, Remember this on my wedding day, I am still your little girl, Love  Ariana”

Believe it or not…Matthew tied this bow tie, no mirrors! That was a Batman move if I can say so myself! Bruce Wayne would be proud!

Matthew was given a gorgeous pocket watch from Ariana as a wedding gift, it was inscribed  ” I want all of you forever, you and I, everyday”…
