what wonderful joyous photographs of the wedding. yes, la dolce vita indeed. you must be so happy.

i ran into one of your books on my bookshelf the other day. iwas so surprised. i must have bought it when i didn't even know your blog. funny how one is miraculously drawn to certain people. i was a fan back then and i continue a fan. you are lovely to be around.


Congratulations. Wonderful post. I am a believer of the small wedding BIG marriage.
