Hi everyone.  I am planning to marry my sweetheart of a whole lot of years (lol) on 2/14/16 in Puerto Rico.  We were to have married this Saturday, 9/5/15 here in Maryland but had to postpone while my FH deals with a medical issue.  This past month has been so emotionally difficult for us both and our families.  We went from a 30 day countdown to no countdown at all.  This was after planning for 1.5 years. :(   But it is OK.  What matters the most is my FH's health. I mean we can always choose another day for a wedding but without my man there's no wedding, right?  The good news is that he is responding well to treatment and has an excellent prognosis for a complete recovery.   :)

 

Since having to postpone our wedding my FH has talked nonstop about wanting to marry me ASAP after he gets through with his treatment.  We got a lot of people suggesting that we go to the JOP but we really wanted to have a ceremony.  My DH suggested going to an island with just immediately family and the closest of friends and to do it early in 2016 and then have a big reception.  So here I am planning a DW.  I am super excited and can't wait for our BIG DAY.  

 

I look forward to planning with you all and reading all about your wedding day.  


Love is the greatest super power.  It can make you weak and strong at the same time.

I'm so glad your FH is recovering. You have such a beautiful love story. Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness together.

 

Thank you.  I see you are fairly new yourself.  How's everything going?

    Thank you.  My FH went there for work earlier this year and fell in love with PR.  When the idea of a DW came up PR was his immediate choice.  :-)
