FROM THE BRIDE // For those that know me, I’m not a girly girl. I’m a no make up, tshirt, jeans and sneakers girl. However I do have a design background and my husband (now!) is an engineer so with both of our powers combined, we create some pretty cool things. And so for our wedding, it was our very own DIY project. From the invitations to centerpieces, we wanted everything to be made by us because we wanted our family and friends to see that we did this for them. For Carlos and I, the wedding was never about us. The wedding was about our diverse families coming together. He had family coming from Guatemala and I had family coming from Vietnam, Australia, and New Zealand. And a lot of these families (from both sides) we very rarely see. So it was an amazing night to see all these people that very never get to see each other, come together in one room and have a good time. So all our design in the décor was meant to represent the love from our family and friends that have supported us through the years and also supported us together. Without them shaping us into the people we are, we would never have met and been so compatible. For future brides and grooms, remember that you’re not only marrying each other, you’re joining two different families together. And that, is a beautiful thing.
