My wedding

so since danielle featured photos of my wedding i figured i would post a few here . we had a very small budget the wedding was to stay under 10,000 , and we had about 100 guest to invite and provide dinner , drinks and cake. it felt totally impossible to pull off a quality wedding on that budget . this is where the actual wedding took place . it was built in the 1800's by a french imagrant who built it as a castle for his wife who was to meet him here . she unfortunately never came since she died on the voyage to america . his family lived there and it was pssed down through generations . till now where his great great great granddaughter operates a private restaurant out of it .

the inside had such nice decor that we saved a ton of money by not having to decorated just a few flower arrangements

the florist also decorated our cake that we had made at the local market and made my amazing bouquet

we were blessed that the venue had packages that included a three course dinner as well as an open premium bar .

we also choose a venue that had a dressing hour so that myself and the bridal party could get dressed there , which was amazing considering that we got married in Jan . and trucking my dress through the snow would have been a nightmare . oh the dress !!! i almost forgot , i wanted a white dress so bad . but every dress i tried on i just got lost in being heavily tattooed and wearing a formal dress can be super hard to put off , so i bought the in house sample dress , and had it colored , the color i wanted this took a 3000 dollar dress and made it a 600 dollar dress !!! WIN

today i introduced oliver to strawberries , it was a weird mixed reaction , his face said "mom this is so gross" but the fact that he munched on it for 2 hours says otherwise

he is really getting so big and so amazing everyday is a new and exciting experience for him , and i can see it in his face . he is so adored on so many levels . im truly blessed

ps. thank you to danielle featuring me on tattoo tuesday loved it!!!
