Summer Time {Wedding & Honeymoon}



It all finally happened! My wedding that is! I just got married on June 15th, 2013! Then we took a two week long honeymoon to the British Virgin Islands. It was all like a dream come true and I couldn't be happier. Let me walk you through out wedding day and tell you a bit about our honeymoon.

My husband's six year old cousin drew this picture of our wedding and handed it to be at the reception saying "Welcome to the family!" She melts my heart!


On our wedding day we had the most beautiful Florida weather sunny and breezy. We had a intimate ceremony that took place on a lawn overlooking the ocean. Our longtime friend and my maid of honor's boyfriend married us with a heartwarming and personal ceremony.













Then the guest moved to the pool deck area where they enjoyed cocktails and the view. We took as many pictures on the lawn, the beach, and around the beach club that we possible could.




A bagpiper started to play and guest moved across the street to the main clubhouse. This was where the major fun took place! We listened to touching speeches, ate delicious food, drank fine wine and champagne, and danced the night away with a funky band. Every detail was perfect from the flowers to the cake.


Our first dance to Eric Clapton's Wonderful Tonight.

It was the best day of our lives!


Then we hopped on a plane and went to BVI! We enjoyed visiting many island including Tortola, Virgin Gorda, and Jost Van Dyke. The highlights of our trip include visiting private beaches, boating, snorkeling, hiking, romantic beach dinner, gourmet picnic lunches, and spending much need time relaxing together.

The past few months we're extremely stressful leading up to the big day but these past few weeks have been worth all the effort and time.

I'm officially a Mrs. now!


I plan to be blogging a lot this summer and revamping this blog! Look for more to come! Hope you are having a wonderful, relaxing summer!
