    Her work is fabulous. She's young and super creative and I loved working with her. She normally charges $3600 for a wedding here. Omg.

        Happy Legal Wedding Day Erin!

         

        Congrats on the offer to pay Laura. I wish someone would offer to help us out.

         

        Tris that is amazing! I would be tempted to have both! Even if you lose the deposit would it be cheaper to pay her travel costs?

            Congrats Erin!

             

            Lua - I am working on the Oversized postcards on Vista Print for the welcoming letter as well.  I was going to put them in our welcome "passport" booklet, but I think it will be a little more special to have it separate.

                Tris- that's awesome! Definitely go for it! Our photogs are giving us a deal too because they've never been to Jamaica and want to go. Wish I could say it was because we are a dream to photograph but I don't think that will ever be true!! Lol!!

Haven't decided which one I am going to use yet cause I may still make a welcome book if I have time and will put it in that if I go that route.

                     

                    An apology and a little cash never hurts huh Laura WOO HOO lol Very nice logo, can't wait to see the final result since I haven't decided what I am doing for my welcome stuff yet (ie..bag or folder)

                     

                    Congrats Erin on the wedding and the member status! This will be a Valentines Day you will never forget! We decided to do our legal the day after we get back from Mexico.

                     

                    I totally think after all this is done we should all meet somewhere and have a girls weekend!!!!! Since i think we honestly spend more time talking to each other than our friends! lol

                     


                    I love the idea of doing a girls weekend!  I'm not really THAT far away from you GTA ladies!  Depending on the situation, I would be willing to travel up there!

                    Tris, that is absolutely awesome!  Good luck with getting FI to go for it.  The fact that she normally charges $3,600 and willing to do it for free, that would be a unique opportunity for sure!  Absolutely worth it!

                      Alright so, first off....Thank you, everyone! 

                       

                      Tonight was just such a weird experience!  We had a witness, which was my mother and I thought that was kind of cool because she was there for the legal part of it.  We went over to the house of a Justice of the Peace here in town.  It was me, FI, my mom, and the JP.  We did the vows and the exchanging of the rings.  Then we were done.  It was all of about.....10 minutes, if that.  I do have a picture of my rings together.  My wedding band is now back in the box and in our safe.  I'm not going to lie....I really want to wear my wedding band!

                       

                      Wedding ring.jpg

                      I just love it!! 

                       

                      So, when we got home, FI pulled out my Valentine's Day present...  Now, please realize that in the three V-day's FI and I have celebrated, I've only ever gotten one gift.  Our very first V-day he got me a single red rose, and said, I don't do V-day...so you probably won't get many other V-day gifts.  He just feels that it's a very commercialize holiday and doesn't need one day to show me that he loves me, and I accept that!  Anyway...  He got me a card, that was "For my Wife...."  and then got me another Pandora charm for my bracelet.  the charm was a heart, perfect for the whole day! 

                       

                      Tomorrow we'll go back to normal and I certainly won't feel any different, because I don't really at this point!


                      Married the love of my life in April!!
