At the Touch of Love, Everyone Becomes a Poet ~ Plato

Hello everyone

My posts have been few and far between while I am busy selling my house and getting my new life in order. I hope to change that soon and get back to posting regularly but in the meantime, I thank you all for bearing with me. I miss it soooo much!!

But, I could simply not miss out on our monthly " By Invitation Only" party!! So come with me...

From This Moment on....

I invite you to a special place, to share a few very precious moments with me...

Once in awhile,
Right in the middle of an ordinary life,
Love gives us a fairy tale. ~ Anonymous

You have your invite...

The cakes are baked....

... kissed by a butterfly...

...decorations are done...

....flowers arranged in my favourite urns, of course ( you know me...)

Tables are decked in the garden of the Abbey for...

...  for a quick refreshing drink, before you go inside ....

...and maybe a light nibble ...

Lil girls are dressed and whispering secrets ...

The bride is getting ready...


A long awaited moment....

To love and be loved is to feel the sun
from both sides. ~ David Viscott

A part of you has grown in me. And so you see,
it's you and me forever and never apart, maybe in distance, but never in heart.


You know you're in love when you can't fall
because reality is finally better than your dreams.
~ Dr Seus ~

Now, lets head to the reception

 The drinks lobby is so very festive....

.... come on, take a closer look ...

If I could reach up and hold a star for every time
 you've made me smile,
the entire evening sky would be in the palm
of my hand

~ Author Unknown ~

Silver candelabra, flickering candle light fragranced by St Josef's lilies, crystal, taffeta and a string quartet....

Food of love...


A feast of love...

I think, that we should nip into the Opera House for a couple of pics...

Just Married!!

Now, do not forget to hop on over to join us at our International Link Up over at my dear  friend Marsha from Splenderosa for a feast of love!

  13. Veronica, Such beautiful images! I love that wedding band!

  14. Hello Veronica! Oh my, there is so very much here that is beauty personified but I have to admit that it is the quotes that made my heart go "ker-thump"--especially the Dr. Seuss!

    Good luck with all of the endeavours lying ahead of you...

    Big TX Hugs,

  20. Veronica darling, your images are sublime. I adore the 'Breathtaking' white floral arrangements, the fig encrusted cheese tower and the bottle of Cristal chilled on rosebud encapsulated ice. Just those three items and I'm the happiest bunny in the land.

    We have 24 hrs left on our David Linley Jubilee Giveaway and I wouldn't want you or any of your gorgeous followers to miss it.

    Pop over to our blog to enter.

    Ciao. Paul X
