- Wedding: September 2010
Well, I’ve been enagaged for 7 glorious months and am only just starting the planning process. I always thought that I would be the type of bride to dive in head first and never stop until my wedding day but once I got here things were different. Calm. It has been so much fun taking things slowly and getting excited when decisions are made. We are so lucky to have an amazing wedding coordinator, Beth Helmstetter, by our side. Because of her, this whole process has been nothing but a pleasure. I find myself constantly thinking, can this be real? Do I really have it this great?
So far, here’s what I can tell you…I come from a large Mexican family and my fiance comes from a small New England family. We both love each other’s culture just as much as our own so just picture this: beach ceremony, open air reception, J.Crew fitted bridesmaids and groomsmen, blue hydrangeas, mariachis, a live taco bar, raw light bulbs strung above the dance floor. It’s nautical meets Mexico. It may sound disorganized but in my head it is perfect. Eventually, I will figure out how to put pictures up so I can show you all my vision.
Beth has a tough assignement ahead of her and yet she has done nothing but surprise us with her great ideas.
All I wanted to say for now is that I am happy to be here. I am excited for everything that is to come. I turn 28 tomorrow and I could not be happier about where I am in life. I have spent the last couple of weeks reading a lot of your posts on this site and I hope I can contribute some new ideas, inspiration and support.
Here’s to a great 2010…
