I don't know if it is possible to describe how amazing this day was and how wonderful these two people are together. Katrina and Tristan really, truly enjoyed their day. They managed to carve out some quiet moments together where they read letters to each other, saw each other for the first time by themselves and went for quiet walk around the lake and talked before their guests arrived. Every moment was special, meaningful, and uniquely them. Aww, I've gone all mushy....
