I seriously can’t believe how incredibly fast this year has gone by. One year of marriage down already! It seems like it was just yesterday he popped the question and wedding planning started. I can still remember the excitement of that day like no other. It was like being on cloud nine and nothing else mattered except the fact that I was about to marry the man of my dreams.
Let me start by saying that when people say this will be one of the best days of your life…they weren’t kidding. It was like something out of a movie. I thought I was going to turn into bridezilla, but I just remember waking up feeling so calm and so incredibly blessed. It’s an amazing feeling. All the stress and drama that comes with planning a wedding did NOT matter that day. All the stress that we went through planning the wedding was SOOOO worth the wedding. I remember us thinking about planning a destination wedding at one point just because we didn’t want to go through the drama and stress of planning a wedding. I’m SOO happy we decided to have a wedding where all of our friends and family could attend.
Walking down the aisle I tried not to loose it. I kept telling myself “please don’t do an ugly cry, please don’t do an ugly cry,” the whole entire time walking down the aisle. When those doors open and you see the man God has destined you to be with, you’re filled with so many emotions that you just want to scream, shout, and cry out “Thank you God!” I cried, but I tried to take deep breaths so I wouldn’t ruin my makeup and have to look at pictures of me doing the ugly cry for many years to come lol. My husband said when the doors opened and he saw me for the first time. I took his breath away…aww. He said he almost broke out in the ugliest man cry of all time. I could tell I took his breath away because I could see him taking deep breaths and trying not to loose it. I kind of wish we both would have lost it lol; those would’ve been some awesome pics huh? Ha!
I really wanted to take it all in because I knew the night would flash by, and boy it did! Before the reception started, my husband and I snuck off to go see the reception room before all the guests entered. Our jaws dropped and we were in complete awe. Everyone worked so hard to pull that day together for us and we will forever be grateful. That day couldn’t have been so perfect without them! I want to take this time to thank EVERYONE who helped in some way, shape, or form to pull that day together for us. I know there’s just TOO many to name so thank you All.
The reception was beautiful and FUN! When I say our family knows how to party and have a good time, they know how to PARTY and have a GOOD time! I’m 100% Latina, so to see his family out there dancing salsa was the best thing ever! Everyone had such a great time! At one point we all did a conga line around the whole ballroom and even took it out to the lobby area of the hotel. That got the attention of some people and we ended up having some wedding crashers at our wedding! Ha! It made for a great wedding story and they were so fun that we didn’t mind at all. I remember one of the wedding crashers yelling out “this is seriously the best wedding reception I have ever been to, you all know how to have a good time!”
When the night finally came to an end we were so sad. We definitely didn’t want the night to end. If I could re-live any day of my life, this would definitely be it.
For those planning a wedding and going through the stress that comes with it… it will ALL be worth it in the end. Yes we stressed out, had fights with friends including bridesmaids and groomsmen, had some people get mad because we decided no to have any children at the wedding, but at the end of the day NONE of that mattered and everyone came together to help us celebrate our day! So cheer up, you’re about to embark on an amazing journey with your soon to be spouse! Congrats you love birds and may God bless your marriage.
To my amazing God-fearing husband, Happy anniversary baby! One down, forever more to go!!!!!!
