Magical Moments

 

Wow where do i start , I think the whole day was the most memorable I mean i got to marry my best friend and the love of my life..
The gettin ready with the girls and especially my mom was just wonderfull. Sitting down to see all yhe happy faces after hair and makeup all yhe laughter and tears through the day. I just love that before my makeup was done they sat me down and gave me a letter that was hand written from the groom, and the tears rolled down my face as i read it i got to apen a present from him to wrar with my dress and it was a pandora bracelet.. The next was standing all alone to reaveal to my dad as the goosebumps went down my whole body and I tried to keep away the tears , I had him speachless. The moment i walked down the aisle to set my eyes on my groom was just a feeling I never felt before. And my little boy waiting for me half way to give me away with my dad to my husband. The first dance. Father daughter dance. And saying goodnight and being carried into the room.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I felt for my wedding that im not going to put myself through all the stress of losing weight for the one day, my husband was and is still inlove with my body so why change anything? I went for a relaxing facial two weeks prior to my wedding and made sure to hydrate my skin so that it looks healthy.

Wedding Elements

My decor was elegant and beautiful. Crystal/glass/mirrors was the main attraction on the tables with tightly packed flowers of red amd white and candles . Main table had a flower drape across. Outside the gondola was packed with greenery and also some of the flowerals from the tables. Our dj had lights and a cloud lacine that made it possible for us to look like we are dancing on the clouds. All the decor and flowers was done by NDM Events. And music by Sound House witb guest singer Shoneill

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom wore a tuxedo with a black bow tie and shoes, and silver cufflinks. The groomsmen wore black syits and shoes with a black tie , and cyfflinks. They had superhero badges with their flowers and matvhing superhero socks that we hand picked. They rented from Euro Suit

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My bridesmaids wore a looks that was elegant to fit my look. I went with 2 burgundy and 2 navy infinite dresses and all of them had a different way to tie it up. I gave them a rosegold bracelet with their names engraved on it. The hair was curled and one braid from front to back it was done by Hair By Michelle.
We bought the dresses from Peaches and Spice.
