Well it's official we are getting married !! And making history because its finally recognized in New york State and soon the World..


 I'm marrying my soulmate the most amazing and romantic woman at one of  the most wonderful places in the world and a place special and dear to my heart. Has anyone ever stepped off the plane somewhere new and felt an instant connection? The smell the surroundings, the people the culture all too familiar to explain.Well That is the way this woman made me feel from the very first encounter. I couldn't keep my eyes off of her and I knew instantly that we somehow knew one another before...She whisked me away last summer to The Grand Hotel on Mackinac island. Its in Michigan and cars are not allowed you must take a ferry to the island and arrive at the hotel entrance by Horse Carriage. For all of you out there unfamiliar with the signifance. Its the location where The Movie 'SOMEWHERE IN TIME' was filmed starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. The most romantic movie ever made and has a cult following. How romantic to think someone would travel back in time to reunite with there lost love. For those of you who havent seen it please do yourself a favor and watch it. Once there we spent three fanatstic days reliving all the great moments seen in the movie and while out on the lake in a small rowboat on our way to a private picnic she had arrange for us, she starts to play the theme song "Somewhere in Time " by John Barry from her ipod touch connected to portable speakers no less . And she stops in the middle of this lake and reads to me not a poem but more like a timeline of our love story titled " Did You Ever Know ... and at the end of these words she pulls out the most beautiful custom made ring i'd ever seen and asked me to marry her. It was the most romantic and unique proposal ever...I still get tears in my eyes when I relive it. I know in May 2012 in Mexico I am marrying my love of all my lifetimes. We decided to use the Smile Market Wedding Photography company because after viewing all there works We couldn't think anyone better to capture our once in a life time moments, and what better name to capture the essence of that day. A day full of smiles...from Friends from Family and from us the Happy couple...a smile a day keeps the Heart young and vibrant....Thanks to all our loved ones for their continued love and support on our special journey together in realizing our dream wedding.

Congratulations and welcome to the forums! Too bad we don't have pictures of the row boat and poem reading! That would have been a fantastic time to have a photographer with a long lens to capture those moments in time!

Best of luck with all your plans. The Moon Palace is a fantastic venue for your wedding. You will love it.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
