The last few months have been a whirlwind! 

1. Engaged
2. Pre-wedding trip to NYC
3. Wedding
4. Honeymoon to Hawaii

Engaged in February, and married in June .... planning a wedding long distance on top of working full time is not an easy task. Alas, both of us wanted a simple wedding ... with only one objective:

To be married to one another and to just have fun.

Simples, right? Well, not exactly. Name one wedding you have been a part of or have been to where there has not been some sort of drama. Or that sometimes, decisions were made to make other people happy ... or that the wedding itself just gets out of control? We figured, the simpler and shorter the wedding, the less time there is for stress and more time for just being with each other :)

We were able to pretty much break even with the generous gifts from our friends and family. It also helped that my dress cost less than $80 to make! D's suit cost more than my outfit! We also made our own bouquets and ended up paying a third of the price quoted to me from florists.

The icing on the cake was the one-of-a-kind fascinator made by the fabulous Misty Greer of Trunkshow fame. You can also find her designs at Scout Boutique just off Main on 8th.

All in all, I'm so happy to say this wedding was very "us". The details took no time to figure out, as long as everyone showed up and preferably wearing some happy colours the day of, we were happy campers!

D's mother's gorgeous ring is everything I imagined my ring would be like!
