My 4th Wedding Anniversary!

Hello everyone, today my husband and I are celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary and oh how the time flies! It seems like just the other day we were preparing to meet all of our friends and family at our venue to have some great food and a lot of fun. Our wedding was elegant, big and beautiful! I wish I could do it again because I had fun planning it and even more fun experiencing it.

To all the soon to be brides out there I have some advice: try not to stress, sometimes things don't go according to plan but be organized, get as much help as you need, and above all make sure you let go and have a good time.

To all the newlyweds: marriage is hard work, there will be good times and bad but through it all remain great friends, spend quality time together, have fun, be goofy and keep the love, passion and romance alive.
Me and my bridesmaids
I thought since I am reminiscing about my wedding day I will take you all back in time with me and share the memories with you.
Our Venue:
I got married at a golf and country club with beautiful lush green landscape, a gazebo, fountains and gardens. The actual building was a mix of modern decor with a touch of rustic charm and beautiful grand chandeliers. As soon as I saw it I knew it was the place and nothing else would do.

Our wedding theme colors was a mixture of light and deep purples with white.

This was the golf and country club where we got married

My bouquet

My Dress
My dress had a lot of crystal detailing. I actually set out to get a ballgown but picked this one instead.

Since my hubby is a private person I decided not to show his face.




 The flowers on the cake were purple but turned blue under all the lights! 2 layers of cake were white chocolate and raspberry and one layer was white chocolate and mango, it was delicious. I got my cake from Just Temptations 


Invitations:
At the top of our invitations is says: two hearts, two souls united forever in love.

Bouquets: 






We had an open bar so things got a little crazy on the dance floor but we had a blast!

To celebrate today we are going to have a romantic date and just spend some time together. Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband Wayne, I love you :)

    1. Thank you, well it wasn't perfect, some things did go wrong but sometimes no matter how hard you plan you can't control everything. To be honest it was so much work that when 1am hit I was ready to leave my guests and get to the airport for my honeymoon. After all that planning and just having finished University a 7 day cruise plus a week in the Bahamas was amazing. We went to the airport right after the wedding and I fell asleep sitting up waiting for the plane lol I think I still had rice in my hair from when the guest threw it when we were getting into the limo.
