July + August ..In a NutshellSunday, September 11, 2016
I know I know. Two full months have flown by and I've been absent on my blog for a hot min! Well, I'm back and I have a perfectly good explanation for my absence...
I had a wedding and got married to my bestfriend - YUP!
You see, planning a wedding is NO JOKE! It literally takes every fiber of your being, mentally (i.e. budgeting, picking theme colours, picking linen, reading reviews, magazines etc.) and physically (i.e. hiring vendors, finding a venue, food tasting, cake tasting, dress shopping, etc.)...especially when you are so particular like myself *sigh* July and August equalled crunch time! So those two months were a write-off for me as I actually had no mental space left to focus on my blog, as per usual.
Anyways, back to my brief wedding synopsis...it was on Sunday August 21, 2016 with an intimate guest list of approximately 95 of our closest family and friends. Our special day was truly a magical event and hands-down the best day ever! The theme colour was splashes of Tiffany Blue, Ivory linen and flowers with Bling! The day was flawless from start to finish, from waking up at 5:45am, to watching the rain turn to beautiful sunshine, to eating breakfast with my bridesmaids, turning the house into a full studio set with hair and makeup, to arriving at the church and walking down that isle with butterflies in my stomach...it was perfect. I heard of a few wedding disasters i.e. cake melting, vendors not arriving on time, heels breaking, wrong limo showing up etc. and because of that, in the back of my mind, I was actually expecting something to go wrong but it didn't - thank you Lord!
On to the reception! My husband and I love love love comedy! We are literally at most, if not all, major comedy shows in our city. We had a West Indian comedian grace our family and friends with his charm and funny jokes. It was one of the many highlights of the night that we will never forget. After the bouquet and garter toss, my husband and I cut and fed one another cake to "Happily Ever After" by Case (love that song!!!). We then danced the night away to our favourite tunes along side our family and friends on the dance floor. Oh, and of course we had to have a Photo Booth to make the night extra fun, and special :)
BEST DAY EVER!
P.S. Missed my blog dearly though *wipes away tears*
