Hello everyone! It's been a long time since we have posted a blog entry and there is a reason for that. I do not want to get into specific details because I do not want to give satisfaction to others. You see, I started this blog because I wanted to create a different kind of memory besides the pictures and the video that captures the close intimate details of our wedding. After the wedding, Mark and I agreed not to continue with the blog because we did not want a large group of people to know any aspect of the wedding. However, now that it has been a year later, we don't feel that it was fair to ourselves to let others change our plans. So as part of my one year anniversary gift to my husband I am going to continue this blog as planned. Happy First Anniversary Mark! I LOVE YOU!!!!
August 31, 2011, the wedding we had planned for September 24, 2011 started to fall apart. Along with approximately 20 guest, the lady who was planned to do my hair and make-up, as well and my girls make-up decided she wasn't coming to the wedding. Two life long friends who were part of the ceremony to bless the rings and give the blessing for the meal at the reception flaked out on me three weeks before the wedding. You better believe I was a very hurt and stressed bride. It's amazing how you can feel you have hit rock bottom and God just comes and sends his blessings. It was in our time of need that so many stepped up and did all they could to save our wedding. First, I want to thank my girls Kristina, Stephanie, Nicole along with my Mom and Mother-in-Law Prudy for helping me find a new hair stylist and make-up artist for me and themselves. We want to thank Nicole for doing my nieces hair and Dee for helping with the bridesmaids hair. Thank you Pat for my hair, I never though my hair could look that good. Thank you Julie, for not just my make-up but also my girls make-up as well. They were beautiful. Thank you to Kevin (our Officiant) for covering the blessing of the rings even though that was not the original plan. Thank you to Kathleen for giving the blessing of the meal on such short notice. You all were a blessing from God and saved our special day.
Of course there are other people we want to thank. Thank you to Elsa and Stephanie for setting up the Crystal Room. We will never forget how beautiful the room looked. It was perfect. A very special thank you to Ildi for staying up all night baking that fabulous Grooms Cake, which by the way, had to be the hit of the party. Thank you to our beautiful wedding coordinator, Bonnie. We were sad that Bonnie wasn't able to make it to the wedding, due to being hospitalize that morning. But she did a fabulous job helping us plan our special day.
And finally, thank you to all of our guest who came and gave us your blessings.
You made it our perfect day, a day neither one of us will ever forget.
