I don’t know how it happened, the time just passed so quickly. At first we were getting matching tattoos, and then he was proposing and then I thought I was planning a longish engagement period but all of a sudden now we’ve been married for a whole month!
I thought I would share my stress with you guys about with my wedding planning woes, and celebrate the little milestones, like choosing my dress, and celebrating at the bridal shower, but nope I was too busy enveloped in the moments to capture them in words for you.
I CAN tell you that the wedding was just magical. It was really everything I could have hoped for and more, all the details came together just perfectly. Everyone kept saying it was the best wedding they’ve gone to, which is quite a compliment that I didn’t even expect; I just wanted the people I love to be there with us as we took the next step in our relationship and became Mr. and Mrs. That’s what happened, and it was made even better because we were able to spend the weekend with our family and friends (let’s be honest they are family too).
It was in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and we had about 50 people stay at the all-inclusive resort with us. It was so amazing to walk around the resort and see the cute faces of people we knew. At breakfast (really any meal) we keep adding chairs to our table every time we saw a familiar face, which was so nice, like a mini party every time we got hungry. We went kayaking, banana boating, and played games with the bartenders at the swim up bar. Some people took excursions and went off the resort, we also laid by the beach, went on water slides at the mini waterpark and really had so much fun that we forgot to take pics of it all.
Wait, I’m not even talking about our wedding. Gahhhh it was beautiful. The weather was perfect, the guests were beautiful and the food was delicious. My dress was gorgeous and I still get comments about it, my husband looked like a GQ model and I wouldn’t change anything about my day (except that my aunt fell after she missed a step walking to the mic to make a speech- no worries nothing broke!)
But yeah, still here in wedded bliss, loving my husband, reminiscing on our trip, and planning the next family destination vacation.
