A Dream

I cannot believe that the whole whirlwind that was my wedding actually happened. It was the crazy, most exciting, fun and memorable day of my life. Everything was simply flawless. Watching the episode last night was so emotional and amazing to see how it all came together and I’m more than excited to finally be able to share our wedding pictures! I was planning this entire week to just post them all and share the experience with everyone. I also wanted to do a Q&A on Friday about the whole experience and I will answer any questions you have. You can leave them in a comment or email me at and I will try to answer all questions on Friday. I know it will be a lot of my wedding in a week, but alas, I haven’t gotten to share anything about it yet, and I’m super excited and then it will be over. :) So sit tight.

Here are a few personal pictures from my phone that are not professional but I took throughout the experience. :)

Right after meeting David at our house for the first time. I showed him my table and the bridesmaid dresses and shockingly enough, he liked them! :)

After the amazing experience at the Sonya Dakar skin studio and the little Bridal Shower they planned for me. It was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life, a gorgeous day and my favorite women in my life!

After Go-Karting… which I must admit, was pretty scary!

The most amazing designer ever, Inez Di Santos. She seriously is the sweetest and most amazing person in the world! I can’t believe I actually got to meet her. Since Dress 3 was my absolute favorite, I took a picture with her and the dress :)

On our dress shopping day! So surprised to see everyone there.

Working with everyone was amazing, and truly so memorable. Everything on the show is so true, you literally know NOTHING. We didn’t know where we were getting married until the Thursday before, and we got married on a Saturday. I didn’t know what dress I was wearing until that morning. We didn’t know our shoes, jewelry, until that day. And yes, I truly enjoyed the whole experience. When you are with David, he’s so kind and genuine, and you know you are in the best hands. I still cannot believe it happened! It was a blast, and to see all the love and emotion of all those who are so close to us was so amazing to feel that the entire day. Here’s the deets on our entire wedding.

We were married at First Christian Church North Hollywood (yes the same church that 7th Heaven was filmed at and most recently it was featured on How I Met Your Mother) and our reception was at Universal Studios. The set up was incredible and the food was amazing.

Here is a list of all the vendors that were at our wedding, which you can also find on We Tv website as well.

BAND – they played during dinner and were SO good. Great vibe and I have gotten a lot of compliments on the great music during dinner: Rocky Neck Bluegrass Band

BRIDAL GOWN – the dress, which I am still obsessed with, was from Lovella Bridal, great experience there and AMAZING DRESSES. 818.245.INES

BRIDAL PARTY SHOES & ACCESSORIES, another surprise for us were the amazing and cute Nina Bridal shoes and accessories. They were comfortable and I love wearing them!

CATERING, great, great food and totally what we both wanted! Gourmet Celebrations

CATERING AND DANCE FLOOR RENTALS, again, can’t say it enough but everything looked amazing so I truly am thankful to all those behind the scenes that I never even met. Dolphin Event Services

CHALKBOARDS AND LANTERNS, Once you see the professional pictures later this week, you will die over how everything came together! :) These are SO cute and they did amazing with them. Darice

CHOCOLATE CANDY APPLES. I wish I could share these with everyone. They were the best candied apple I’ve ever had. Carmel covered in red chocolate? DELICIOUS. Enjou Chocolat

CUSTOM NECKLACE. I wear this necklace a lot still and love it! I love how it’s interchangeable and love the beautiful red flower and little blue accents with the beads. Beautiful and she is SO sweet! Kata Banko Couture

LIGHTING Lighting makes all the difference and the street our wedding was held on was beautiful! Amber Event Production

LINENS I loved the gingham… obviously! :) Cloth Connection

PRINTED MATERIALS There were so many details that made it all come to life and she did an amazing job with our escort cards, program and all printed materials! Sandi Spells Design

RECEPTION DRESS This dress was HOT and I loved it! So much fun and changing made dancing so much easier. Sherri Hill

VINTAGE FURNITURE/PROP RENTALS I think these were the bikes, fencing and pews? Possibly? Anyways, I love the vintageness of them and they came out looking amazing! Found Rentals

EVENT RENTALS, I’m sure they supplied so many things! Town & County Event Rentals

FLORAL DESIGNER These flowers were AMAZING. I loved how everything looked and loved the combonations and how vivid and colorful everything was. The floral arrangements were simply gorgeous and beyond my wildest dreams! Studio Fiore

HAIR AND MAKEUP These girls know their stuff, they were amazing to work with, patient and totally made everyone look AWESOME! I would love to have them by my side every morning! :) Noriko Kerns-Podue from The REX Agency

WEDDING CAKE This cake was SO cute and fun! I love all her work.  NancyKay’s Confections

WEDDING VENUE I love this church. It was so pretty. So simple, clean, everything was perfect! First Christian Church North Hollywood

So any ways, after all that! I will post our pictures of pre-wedding, getting married the the reception throughout the rest of the week. :) And then friday, I will try to answer any questions that I get in the comments on emailed to me at

    Congrats on the airing of your wedding. I don’t have cable, so I missed it.

    I’m planning my wedding for November, after much debate on whether to have one at all. Like you, I’m not really a girly-girl and have trouble seeing myself in the bridal role. Also, my family doesn’t seem all that supportive, so I feel so alone in this process. I feel as though my “special day” has already been taken away from me, though we’re going to proceed since I might regret it later.

    Anyway, enough about me, I love that you were able to make your wedding your own. I have a similar goal (not to mention a conservative budget). Looking forward to hearing more about the details of your wedding and reception.

      First "stop and frisk" aimed at blacks and Latinos, then the soda ban primarily aimed at black and Latino neighborhoods, and now this. You have to wonder what Bloomberg's problem with minorities is, except this is a prime example of the logical endpoint of racist liberal fascism, and exactly why minorities should be embracing small-government Republicans.

    I’ve been a reader since last February when I signed up for the SF Marathon. I’m from Chicago, but I enjoyed reading your blog about running. I actually made it a point to sit down and watch the My Fair Wedding episode last night. It was a very exciting and emotional episode (I shed a few tears too – of happiness of course). I think you should give yourself more props since David didn’t change the dresses on you and he basically used a lot of your decor ideas. Good Job!!
