A special couple

The other Saturday evening we attended the wedding celebrations of Anna and Steve following their wedding in Thailand in February.  The bride looked radiant and the groom very handsome.  I worked with Steve for several years and hold him in such high esteem both as a manager and a human being.  Steve is visually impaired and will eventually lose his sight and yet he still manages to do his job, extremely well, run marathons and live life to the full.  Anna, his new wife, has cystic fibrosis, a life-shortening disease.

These two are so in love, so good together and such a beautiful couple in more ways than one.  It was a real privelge to be part of their celebrations and feel the love in the room.  I don't think there was a dry eye when they did the first dance to Bruse Springsteen's - If I should fall behind.

So we did the usual thing of getting the vouchers the couple wanted but I also wanted to make them something special so I rustled up a little 9"x 9" scrapbook page and framed it with a box frame from IKEA.  The papers are a mixture of Rusty Pickle and Papermania.  The overriding theme being the purple as their wedding was full of beautiful purple Thai orchids.

I start a new job next month and am pleased to say that Steve works for the company I am moving too, along with a lot of other ex-colleagues.  I'm really looking forward to working with him again and being inspired by him.

In the meantime I wish both of them much happiness - they so deserve it.
