DH's best friend from Canada recently tied the knot in San Sebastian Church. We were both glad that Grant has finally found the girl of his dreams. I knew it the moment I met the two of them for the first time (well, first time for Wena) while we were vacationing in Canada last year. The smile on Grant's eyes was different, I knew he was in it for the long run.
