On August 15, 2105, Ryan and I made a life long commitment before God and our friends and family.  We got Married!!  This day was absolutely perfect in every way.  It was everything that I ever had dreamed of.  I want to thank everyone who helped out that day and many days prior for making it all come together.  I even will admit, that I don’t think I was too stressed that day! (Maybe it was my OCD prior!)

I would not have gotten through the day without these amazing ladies by my side.  Each and everyone of the them are my best friends.  We all know how to laugh and have a great time.  A huge thank you to my matron-of-honor Tamara for helping me get my dress bustled (6 times) and for sneaking away with us for our sunset pictures to help me out with all my accessories.  All of your girls helped me out in so many way!  Thank you!


Whitney Huynh with Tulle and Grace is who took these amazing photos.  We are so excited to see the rest of the day’s events through your lens.  I am sure that we will love them just as much as we do these.  You were able to capture more than just photos, but expressions, feelings, and emotions.  That is what I want to be able to remember when I see these pictures.  Thank your for being there and helping me out all day, including curling my hair!  Girl, you are amazing 🙂


This last photo was one I grabbed off of Facebook take by one of our guests.  Yes, it was a bit hot outside, but I am so happy with how the day went.  Our ceremony was short, sweet, and meaningful to us.  Of course we sealed it with a kiss at the end.. and a selfie 🙂 Once again a huge THANK YOU to everyone that was involved in making our day so special.  We really could not have done it without you.  We love you all from the bottom of our hearts!

Here is to many more years with this handsome man.  Can’t wait to see what our adventures, accomplishments, and challenges will be.  Love you to the moon and back!  Eeek!  I still can’t believe that I am finally Married!!  ♥♥♥

I am also excited to announce that I will be putting together a little series for helpful tips for Brides and Grooms that are in the wedding planning process.  I absolutely loved every minute of this planning and can’t wait to share with you what I have learned.  These tips will be posted a few times a month!  Your first tip will be a review of all of my amazing vendors at the beginning of October.
