This was one of the worst phone calls and all I wished, had I done it sooner, she would have been able to see it to tell me what she thought. I hope she is proud of me. I love you Oma and Mama. This was such a memorable day in so many ways. Thank you to @nlvogue @seanthomas_photo @rinketjepkema and the team for being so great 💛"
