I want to start off my saying thank you to everyone out there for all your advice, information, and support! I have no idea how I would have done this without this site!!
Ok, so this all started on October 22, 2009 when my FI proposed! It was our 3 year anniversary and we were going out to dinner at our favorite restaurant. That morning he gave me a beautiful necklace as an anniversary present to make sure that I didnâ€™t think he was going to propose. And it worked. Once I saw the necklace I figured maybe it will happen on Christmas. So he proposed in our favorite little Italian restaurant and it was perfect. He had my engagement ring custom made by a local jeweler in Center City Philadelphia (William Schwartz on 18th & Chestnut). We also got our wedding bands from him.
So the next step was to pick a day and a resort. The day was easy, we just picked our 4 year anniversary 10/22/10. We both already discussed having a DW so that was already decided and we wanted it to be on an island that neither of us never been to before. So the Westin Aruba ended up being our choice. Patrick is our WC and he is amazing! He did an amazing job! So here are some of the pictures from the wedding at the Westin.
Next I went to Davidâ€™s Bridal and got my wedding dress, both veils (one finger tip length and one cathedral length) and my tiara.
