First, I must say a special shout out to the women of the Moon Palace 2012 Brides forum. We have truly gone through ups, downs, highs, and lows. Thank you for trusting me enough to share, an allowing me to vent and even at times hog the thread. To my forever friends: Shane, Diane, Kelly, Jamie, & Steph, words cannot express the gratitude that I have for this site not only because of the wealth of information but for the contact and blooming friendship that I have with you. XOXO
Okay, Derick and I met in March 2009. My best friend & I had gone out for the evening at a place called NXNW for Old School Fridays. I had been on medical leave for 3 months and was confined to the house or on short outings. I was headed back to work that Monday, so I needed to let loose. Got there, and we met up with some other friends who had a table, so we sat with them. At the end of the table, standing was a guy who was moving to the music. I was in my seat moving. He nodded, I got up, and we danced the night away. Our friendship grew but more so, when my best friend ended up in the hospital and a few days later passed away. FI, was there from beginning to end and from there (in my pain, misery, confusion, etc.. he never let me go.) Okay, Iâ€™m going to stop here as tears are in my eyes. Whew
Before I go any further, I most honor My FIâ€™s mother and father both of who are deceased. In addition, as I explained above my best friend. They will be close to us as I purchased a memorial chain that will act as my bouquet charm. This was purchased from an Etsy Vendor DesignsbyTami. This process was hard and made me cry, but Tami was wonderful to work with.
Rings: Although Iâ€™m a diamond baby born in April, I like colored bling. Which confused the hell out of my FI..so I had a temporary ring until he researched TeeHee. The end result My Ring a vivid blue sapphire, his a Tungsten
We decided on a DW because FIâ€™s family is super large. In addition, between both of our friends and my sorority, there was NO way in Hell that we could afford a wedding with 300 people. Mexico was easy as we were supposed to go there for my Birthday, however; FI had started a new position within his company. Moon Palace simply because of its beauty and benefits. To inform everyone a year in advance I made our website
