As a bride on your wedding day you’re beyond busy running from one place to the next, being pulled in every direction and have a million things on your mind. After what seems like endless hours of planning, anticipation and excitement, you want to remember every second of your day, right?

Further up the stream family gathered on an island in the crisp September air and kept warm with hot cider.
