November in Auckland. 25 degrees in the shade. A bubbly bride, listening to gangsta rap while getting ready. Continuous happy tears from the bride, bridesmaids and parents. And way more sun than we could handle. Although Lah and Chad only needed me for a few hours in the morning as well as the ceremony, I was so grateful the whole day. This was a great reminder of how much I want and need to do this—the five hours spent in East Auckland turned this day to be one of my favorite days spent in New Zealand.
To me, there is nothing more beautiful and rewarding, than to be part of this special day in two people's lives.
