I stood there holding my breath while my best friend, who's been with me through the thick and thin of my life put his hand on my shoulder and said "It's gonna be alright".

Everyone stood as she walked down the aisle with flowers in her hand, escorted by her father.

It felt like her each step poured some more oil of love in my heart, to beat faster and faster and faster.

She managed to smile while her eyes were still moist with happiness.

I've been waiting for this moment since the evening I went on my knees, holding a flower in one hand and a ring in the other and I said, "Rachel, my love, my life, my friend, will you marry me?"
