  • Wedding Updates

    Thank you all so much for the well-wishes! My husband (OH MY GOSH I CAN SAY THAT NOW) & I had the most beautiful wedding day ever. People tell you "keep in mind things AREN'T going to be ~perfect~" but in all honesty the day was perfect for us; I really couldn't have asked for anything to have gone better and just felt so happy and blessed and in love and loved the whole day. Some cute lil wedding details for anyone who likes to read about weddings ~ also I may post some pics of the wedding later in some capacity??? but wait a minute on that! maybe later this week!

    Spoiler! :

    Our colors were red + blue + pink + purple (berry colors) so we had "berry names" for all the reception tables, and I decorated tables at church with burgundy table cloths and little teeny tiny flower vases with little teeny tiny flowers that I bought individually and then arranged/cut. So cute!! Also had a friend hand-paint a large sign with our wedding colors and flowers all over it, and our new last name and I just absolutely loved how all the colors and decor turned out!

    For our music... we had NUVOLE BIANCHE (by Ludovico Einaudi) for my processional song and if you know me very well, you know that is my all time favorite piano piece for the last 10 years; and one of the first songs I memorized on the piano. Give it a listen! It has a very ~dramatic~ moment in it which is when I started walking up the aisle, and was so special to walk up to because I would say it is the song of my soul/life and now I will forever have this lovely association of remembering my wedding whenever I play it. :')

    Our first dance was so cute guys. Neither of us are dancers at all (like I am the type of person that absolutely stands in the corner and tries to look busy folding up a napkin or cleaning a table during wedding dances usually) so I think our family was expecting some very awkward middle-school slow-dance moves, but we practiced for a month so we could do some spins and dips for the dance and it was definitely fun to surprise our families a bit! Also we both have very religiously conservative family / friends so decided to be safe we wanted to pick ALL the music for our reception (from the background dinner music, to the dance music) to ensure that every song was "appropriate" and that was such a fun process to hand-pick all our fave nostalgic songs for the evening.

    For the honeymoon we went on a week-long cruise to the Bahamas and I had the opportunity to see some wild chickens on the beach!!! The cruise was very lovely; we are thinking of going on another cruise for our 1 year anniversary. :)

    Like I said... hoping to maybe post a few little pictures later - but did want to update that all went well for the wedding and I am enjoying this new adventure of life! This is maybe a bit too sappy for a random yws wall post ~ but I definitely feel like one of the major themes of the last 10-12 years of my life have been struggling with being so achingly transitory (ie. not living in one place stable for very long, always moving states, moving schools, etc.) being homesick is a major theme of much of my poetry - the last 2.5 years have been so wonderful in finally being able to put down roots, not moving every 6 to 11 months and just feel at home in where I live / exist, and now being married (in addition to being lovely and wonderful in itself, because my husband is very much lovely and wonderful) feels like such a relief to finally live among family again; after living 10 years basically on my own separated by hundreds of miles from any relative or loved one. ~ And in some big way, being in love also feels like finally being at home again.

    Dossereana That sounds so beautiful alliyah! Congratulations! <33 I'm so happy that it was perfect, and I wish you and your husband many more happy years together!!! :D
