The Newlywed Couple: We’re Mr. & Mrs.


The last few days have been a blur, more like the last two weeks before the wedding until now. Getting last minute things done, people coming in from out of town for the wedding the rehearsal and other crazy things.

I think the look of Bride looks good on anyone

No matter what is happening days before your big day, make sure you take time to relax. The couple needs some alone time, more than anyone else the bride, especially if she’s doing all the work. One of our dear friends was so wonderful and gave us our wedding gift early. He sent us to the ballet to see Stanton Welch’s Cinderella. It was a date night for my husband and me. We got dressed up and were able to spend a few hours not thinking about the wedding.

Mr. & Mrs.

We had people in from all over for our wedding and that shows us how people wanted to be with us on our big day. A very special thanks to you!!!  I love everyone that made it out to share that beautiful day with us.

Our wedding was amazing, from the church to the reception. My dress was so lovely and my veil that my mother in law brought from Spain was breathtaking. It was all the way I dreamed that my wedding would be. My husband was surprised when I walked in and walked down the aisle, he had no clue what to expect. In Latin tradition, the groom doesn’t see the dress until the wedding day. I think that everyone should leave some mystery, especially for the groom, since everything becomes about the bride. I loved it all so much I’m ready to do it all over again. For me, the best part was seeing his face and the reaction when he saw me was filled with so much love.

A real shot of a wedding, groom looking at me in love, cameras, cell phones in the way and the two best men snickering. Love it!
My wedding party was the best, they all pulled through, helped out and made the night absolutely fun. My biggest helpers were my two sisters. My baby sister helped me all throughout the planning, she was my rock. My other sister was slacking, but she pulled through and took control the day of the wedding. She actually works better under pressure than anyone else. The three sisters that are not very girly at all, put together a bridal shower, bachelorette party, and an amazing wedding. Plus they were my two maids of honor.
I love the candid photographs
The wedding day came and went by so fast. I’m a bit sad about that. Now all I want is the pictures that people took of the wedding. I won’t get the professional pictures until a few months. I can’t wait that long, I want to see pictures now!

I’m a Mrs. now and I’m so happy. I think I’m in love with my husband more than when he was my fiancee. All the stress is gone and we are now married planning our next chapter in our lives.
