    The day we got engaged. We were on a hike with Mike’s family in the North Carolina mountains. He proposed on the top.

    First pair of shoes I bought. Not as cute in person so I’m wearing them for the TTD instead. To cheap to worry about shipping back.

                    OK, now it is over. 11 months worth of wedding planning! Thank you everyone who gave me feedback, encouraged me to keep making stuff & made this whole process a blast. I never had any intention of planning my wedding. I was just going to show up in Mexico & get married. Finding this forum changed everything. I had fun, saved money & learned new skills by being a DIY bride. I can’t wait to share this all with my guests.

                    Big Thank You!!!!!


                    I also attached a newletter I emailed our guests about the coba trip & deep sea fishing so they could pick which one they wanted. There are lots of pictures.
