Wedding Post

Well I promised you I’d tell you all about our story of how we met and married, so here I go.

Adam and I met while working at a restaurant, he was a Sou Chef and I was a food runner. He asked me out through the food window. It was really embarrassing! I had never been asked on a date before and I didn’t know how to be nice and also let someone down. I wasn’t interested in him that way and I just wanted to be friends. Luckily for me he was very persistent and agreed to be my friend. We started hanging out everyday and talked on the phone till late in the night (he used to play DJ for me and played songs for me on the phone, I’d fall asleep listening.) and after a few weeks we became very close and I started falling for him. We talked about marriage, kids, the future and after a while we realized we were perfect for each other. He proposed to me on the 4th of July while we were out with my family. Right when the fireworks went off. It was really sweet.

We then started planning our wedding. I didn’t want to have a big to do and I wanted to keep it casual. I wanted it at my parents house and I wanted just my immediate family and close friends. I did have three requirements though: One, that I would have a beautiful gown; Two, I LOVE flowers and I wanted to have beautiful bouquets; and Three, I wanted to hire someone to take photos so I’d always have the memories in photos for all of prosperity.

Adam had only one requirement: that we would only spend 2,000-4,000 dollars. We succeeded at frugality and brought it in around 2,000. We used all local small businesses and grabbed some great deals. We let our bridesmaids choose what color they wanted and then let them buy whatever dress they wanted in that color. Two of them already had gold dresses so they saved even more money!

I even got to wear TWO beautiful gowns since I found a shop that was donating designer gowns to charity. They had gone around and collected last season sample dresses from top designers and sold them for $50!!!! Most of them still had original price tags on them and the one I bought had been priced around $2,000. Boy did I hit the jackpot right?!! Since they were so cheap and it was for charity I went back and bought another.

Anyway, here are some photos….
