My 1 Year Wedding Anniversary

Sure, people say it all the time: Where has the time gone? A rushed morning flies by, a lazy afternoon drips away, a fun night flashes away, and a year, well… I can’t believe it’s already been one truly wonder-filled year since I married the man of my dreams. It feels like it was just yesterday. This year has been filled with so many celebrations, big and small, and even more love. I couldn’t have asked for anything more or anything better.

I know what you’re thinking: this blog is about fashion! And while that’s true, I wanted to write about my wedding day because if it not for my husbands support, encouragement, and superb photography skills, this blog would not exist.

So to my husband: thank you, for inspiring and encouraging love in so many ways.

And to my readers: here's your fashion fix, our wedding attire and wedding day!

Our wedding took place in Miami, Florida, at the always-gorgeous Deering Estate. Our vision was to integrate our cultures and our families on the most important day of our lives and it was a spectacular success! We had Puerto Rican and Mexican food stations, a traditional Latin ceremony, and, of course, a Mariachi band. As a special touch, our wedding party was made up of all of our immediate family members (and a cousin that has always been like a sister).

After the wedding, we decided on a Rock the Dress session in Puerto Rico, so I could have a memory of our wedding in my home country. It was great to have family that could not attend the wedding celebrate again with us. And as an added surprise, what started as a business trip with our photographer ended up as a fun-filled weekend and a genuine friendship.

It’s been a fun journey and I’m excited about what the future has in store for our little family. For now, I hope you enjoy the pictures and the quick glimpse into my new, married life!

Fashion tip: Don’t know what to do with that dress? Rock it at a special photography session. No need to worry about tears, creases, wrinkles, or dirt! This session is all about letting go of the stress and formality and reliving and remembering a beautiful day in a beautiful gown.

What We’re Rockin:
Bridal Gown - Merlili Bridal
Heels - Nine West via Zappos

  10. hahaha it's definitely not the first time that someone mistakes my age. I usually get confused for 8 to 10 years younger, which is a pain for work! Not only am I not in undergrad but I have a PhD...hahaha. I'm sure there will be a point in my life when I appreciate the confusion ;-)

  11. Thank you so much! The venue was really a dream location. A hidden gem in Miami! We were very lucky to get the spot because it gets book fast and way in advanced. So I definitely count my lucky stars!!
