The Wedding

Guys! It's over! It's finally over!

I know that may not sound like the nicest reaction to having gotten married, but that's how I feel! Don't get me wrong, the wedding was lovely and fun and everything I wanted it to be. But I am so happy to be back to my regular life that does not involve guests lists, catering appointments, or agonizing over whether or not we bought enough booze to keep my thirsty friends and family happy (we did).

So how about some pictures?? These were all taken by my lovely mother. We haven't gotten the photos back from the photographer yet.

wedding ceremony

This was the ceremony. In my backyard. Most of the decorations are homemade. Remember I showed you a picture of all those paper flowers I made? Here they are, hanging in all their glory! It was a lovely, short ceremony. Maybe 5 minutes total. That was exactly what we wanted. Short and sweet and to the point :)

Yes, my dress is purple and yes I made it. I'll do a whole post about the dress later, I promise!


Just after the ceremony picture :) We smiled a lot that day!

brides and bridesmaids

My lovely bridesmaids/sisters. On the left is my sister and on the right is Mario's. Love them!

Parents of the groom

Here we are with Mario's parents :)

bridal party

And the whole wedding party. Yes, I am short. 

wedding handmade flower crown

 See that crown of flowers on my head? Mario's youngest sister (not pictures) made it for me. Those flower are made of clay and attached to a bark covered wire crown. Isn't it lovely? She's so talented!

wedding smooches

I'll leave you with this one, which pretty much sums up the day. In spite of all the stress, everything went perfectly and everyone had a great time. I'm so happy I've found such a wonderful partner and have such wonderful friends and family. I feel so lucky :)
