    Awwww! Glenda, Amy - thank you so much guys for the compliments. You are making me sad again :) I want that day BACK!!!

    Glenda -
    The back of that dress was the reason why I decided to ditch my first one...lol I LOVE IT!
    I had a mixture of natural and fake flowers - my bouquet, girls' bouquet, Kashif's Boutonniere, little flowers in my hair, 2 natural flower centerpiecies (lillies and peonies) were all natural.
    Flowers for other not so important stuff like ceremony decor, chair's decor - those were fake. We had 15 guests and it was a perfect number. I never thought i would say that small weddings are awesome but I wouldn't change a thing!
    I can definetely write a review or I can update my wedding planning presentation with the latest info and post it here. One question though - the file is over 5 MB. Is that going to be a problem?

    Amy - I agree with you about the traditional bride :) I always wanted to be a bold bride. Too bad they couldn't do the right make up and hair to complete the look. Oh well...can't have it all. The dress is by "Pronovias". I modified straps and the back by putting a lace all around it. I got it from NYC "Designer's Loft" boutique. They didn't have it in stock that particular model but they were able to order and ship it from Spain in 2 weeks (express order).

    Matt - I agree - Sol did an excellent job!

        Can you tell me where this Water Lights came from...
        I have been trying the exact same centerpiece (but purple) and an not too fond the floating candle on top.

        Appreciate the help

                Loreta- I am almost at a loss for words. Your wedding is the most beautiful and most well put together I've seen yet! Your use of color throughout and your style is impeccable! If I could do my wedding over and say I wanted to copy someone it would be you (hmmm,I'd have to steal your body too to make it work- oh well- scratch that idea!). Your dress, hair, makeup, jewelry- everything was perfect! And your wedding party- wow...
                I've admired your pics for almost an hour now and I absolutely can't pick a favorite, there are so many. Sol is amazing, but you and Kashif make the pictures great. You and your DH (fun, isn't it?!) have such style and presence for the camera, it is amazing. Congratulations! Oh, and by the way, I LOVE blower's daughter- I keep trying to find somewhere to incorporate it into a slideshow or something...awesome!

                      Wow Sarah! What do you do for a living? You should do motivational speaking or “ego boosting” for a living…lol.

                      Jokes aside thank you so much for such kind words! I wish I could do it all over again!!! People are always telling me that I am in a wrong profession. They think I should be a stylist, wedding/event coordinator or home decorator.

                      I loved your thorough review and TTD pictures. When I saw it I thought to myself how well planned and organized your wedding was. I think I will follow your review to write mine…hehehe
