Have you ever dreamt of a fairytale wedding? A castle, a dress fit for a princess and all your family and friends there to celebrate with you. Well, for one lucky bride, this dream wedding became a reality.
At its most basic, a civil wedding ceremony must include legal declarations of status and the exchange of marriage vows.
