So, I got married!!!! Granted it was two weeks ago but between work and school I haven’t been able to keep you up to date. It was a beautiful ceremony and a beautiful day.
I stayed overnight with my mom, sister and niece at a hotel. There was a lot of commotion during the day, my dad and brother came and went, my aunt (she sewed my dress BTW) came to help me get ready and before I knew it it was time to go. While the photographer took pictures of me and my family, passersby congratulated me and admired my dress and how beautiful I looked. I gotta say, I liked the attention.
All this time I was really calm, taking in everything so I wouldn’t get overwhelmed by the things around me. The limo driver came and we were off to the wedding. The ceremony and reception took place in the same location but the ceremony was programmed to be outside in the garden. Sadly it rained so we had to take it inside. But no matter, it was a beautiful ceremony.
As the girls and guys walked down the aisle I could sense my future husband being nervous (he later told me he got nervous when he knew I was coming next). I walked down the aisle with my father to John Lennon’s “LOVE” After the I do’s were said and the rings exchanged we walked out as husband and wife to The Beatles’ “I love her” .
The reception was a dream, it’s decor was brown and yellow with hints of coral in some places. Everyone loved the centerpieces and the decoration, not to mention my dress. Our first dance was to Cultura Profetica’s “Me faltabas tu” [listen to it here], we declared it our song since we heard it. The ballroom glowed as I had my first dance with my husband and although he was concentrated on not stepping on my dress, he looked handsome and loving.
Dad and I danced to Louis Armstrong’s “A kiss to build a dream on”. To my surprise people loved my choice of music [I decided to use non-conventional songs]. In the end my friends and family [especially my dad] danced all night and had a blast. But the best part of the night was that I was finally going home with the man I love most, my beautiful husband.
PS. the professional pictures are coming soon!
