It has been a little over 3 weeks since our wedding on 7.17.14. Photos and videography are still in processing so we will post soon. It was the craziest week ever. 8 months of planning and using ever hour of free time to make a million decisions, researching, emailing, designing, customizing, stressing, coping, forcing relaxation, etc, etc….. and it all turned out purely amazing.
The weather was absolutely perfect and the seaside venue was bright, sunny, ocean glistening, waves crashing, and just….gorgeous. Our guests were blown away by the La Jolla scenery and loved the french style seafood and drinks. They all danced all night long and had the time of their lives. My dress shimmered all night and communicated what I felt inside. Our bridal party looked more stunning than ever… and that is truly and understatement, they took my breath away. EVERYONE had a wedding glow. My husband cried when he first saw me walking down the aisle, it was adorable. Our friends brewed a special beer for our wedding and it was a huge hit… many said it was the best beer they ever had. Our coordination team was on point and so amazing to work with. Our DJ kept everyone on the dance floor all night long and we all shut the place down. The sunset was so beautiful and we had black and white striped beach mats on the lawn for people to take in the sunset while LED white beach balls lit up the night. Our cake was stunning and completely brilliant… modern, minimal, black and white anemones and ranunculus with gold brush strokes in ikat. Our bridal party had a hilarious and very unique dance intro into the reception, it made me laugh and I will never forget it. The kids had the time of their lives eating, giggling, and dancing with light sticks all night.
My husband loved my wedding dress so much and said it was the prettiest dress he has seriously ever seen. Our parents rocked our custom wedding sunglasses and went wild in the photo booth. I know I am gushing and going on and on but it seriously was the best day ever. To be surrounded by your beloved family and long time friends in celebration… it is truly a special honor and privilege.
The ceremony feel so surreal. Like a perfect vision in a dream. Almost too perfect that it barely felt real. Felt like I was floating through everything. Like my body was not connected to my mind because my spirit was uplifted so high by all the happiness around and within me. We were so blessed for this day. So blessed by the family members that helped us make this happen. I’m hanging on so tightly to this wedded bliss and honeymoon stage. I did not expect anything or thought it would feel that different after 7 years with him… but it does. It feels very new and fresh.. like our biggest and best chapter has just begun…and he is the most handsome and sweet hearted guy to embark on this adventure with. Coming up…. details about our Maui honey moon…!
