I have to say that Ross and Rachel are one of the sweetest couples I have ever had the pleasure of posting about – Rachel also happens to be my daughter!

It was difficult to choose the pics for this post. Usually I publish images which capture the look of the day – images that will give you inspiration for your big day. However, I found it difficult not to publish every darn pic that was taken! The photographer captured moments, and every moment meant something to me. Yet I am aware that they may not mean anything to you. So I filtered down my choices. But I couldn’t resist publishing the image above and below.

This is my son, Daniel. He will be thirty next January. And he gets up to all kinds of crazy, on a regular basis! He doesn’t do it for attention; he does it to make people happy. My daughter fills people’s lives with gentleness and care, my son fills people’s lives with laughter and understanding, my son-in-law to be fills people’s lives with thoughtfulness and love. I know all parents say this; I must be the proudest mum on the face of the planet!

OK, back to the engagement party. With a wedding to save for the couple were on a pretty tight budget, so all the decorations were handmade.
