And so the special day arrived.  The day Victoria was to marry her best friend.  It turned out to be a gorgeous day.  The family were all here and everybody had their job to do.  It was a hive of activity and there was so much excitement all around.  So much planning had gone into this day, and what a day it turned out to be.  

 At last the moment had arrived and one proud daddy walked his daughter down the aisle.  The little church was packed to capacity and the wedding march filled the air.  And at the other end, one proud bridegroom waited for his beautiful bride.

The ceremony was plain but filled with emotion.  The justice of the peace had great wisdom to depart to this loving couple.  And then talking about emotions........ Claire made her appearance in a surprise performance dedicated to her sister.  

So out came all the tissues, and the bride needed them most of all... what a great start....

The day proved to be full of fun and laughter.  Just the way a wedding should be.  Everybody looked their best and the pic's taken by my brother Kevin, captured every moment of happiness.

And so we toast  this beautiful couple as they share their 2nd wedding anniversary today.  The last 2 years have been eventful to say the least but so many new and wonderful adventures are just around the corner.  I cannot put in words how proud I am of Simon.  The great strides you have made since the day I met you have left me the happiest mother-in-law in the world.  The love you have for my daughter is indescribable to people and as parents we cannot ask for more for our child.  

Now as you two continue your journey into the sunset.  I want to wish you the happiness you deserve.  So many exciting changes in such a short period of time, but your love for each other will carry you forward and be successful in everything you attempt.

I leave you now with these words:

The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of life is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give. The joy of life is to love.
William Arthur Ward
