The time before the wedding is the time when you both get to feel one of the biggest transitions of your life as you go from lovers to a married couple, exchanging your vows and making the day memorable. Many years later, when you will see these pictures of your youth, they will surely fill you with nostalgia and bring back the memories of the golden days of your life.
