Well I guess I will start my journal with our story. We met through mutual friends about 6 years ago when working at a movie theater. Although the chemistry wasn't there from the beginning, it gradually started sparking as we got to know each other. Our first date (def the BEST DATE i have ever been on lol) he took me to walk on the beach and just get to know each other. On the second we took the ferry to NY and went sight seeing. Needless to say I was head over heels lol! A year and a half later we had a baby girl! Although it was unexpected- she was a blessing and became our world. I wont say it was a walk in the park because we were still very young, but we definitely remained strong for each other. He stood by me and gave me 100% of his support while i was trying to get my BA and eventually landed a good job and i did the same for him.
On New Years 2012 i was unexpectedly surprised when in front of our entire family Cesar got down on one knee and proposed to me and i of course said YES! Shortly after I began calling venues and vendors... and our budget kept increasing and our guest list was even worse. After about a year of being engaged we decided a destination wedding would be the way to go. It cut our budget in half and we saw it as a unique way for us to be married- especially since we've been unique from the very beginning.
So we after ALOT of research we decided on the NOW Jade Riviera Cancun Resort. We booked our date for May 31, 2014 and are expecting about 25 ppl so far!
I recently ordered a proof of my save the dates so as soon as i order them I will make sure to upload the on here, as well as any other cool DIY or wedding related items!!!!
Happy planning ladies!!!
