Daisy was nervous, happy, overwhelmed, excited and blushing all at the same time. It was the special day in her life. Alex too was equally nervous but the glimpse of Daisy in her bridal look filled him with excitement and love. He felt lucky to have Daisy as his life partner. They were to vow to be husband and wife, love and sacrifice, grow together in holiness and be with each other through all ups and downs all their lives. It was their wedding day for which both had been waiting and planning for months. Pictures were clicked and all necessary arrangements were made to make the day memorable.
