how she did it

While we worked on our wedding decoration part, I’d say it was fun and very exciting for the most part as (the bride) I have a deep passion for decorating and love all types of flowers, I’m pretty crafty and creative when decorating in my personal life, I just love it with a passion. I was inspired by various artists and the many talented and amazing work I’d see online and on blogs, Alexandra Garza was one, which has her own You Tube channel, she inspired my wedding since the beginning with many of her great ideas and advice.

We believe the entire wedding day was extremely memorable to the both of us, but if we’d have to pick one or two of the most memorable moments it would be the entrance to our ceremony, it was an honor and a proud moment for us to walk hand in hand with our parents, the two amazing mothers and fathers God blessed us with. Truly an honor to have them give us away to each other and start a beautiful new journey of our own with God’s blessing. Also, the entrance to our reception having the AMAZING salsa band and DJ lead this part beautifully as we danced our way in surrounded by our most loved family and friends, which started and ended an amazing night with us, we truly felt blessed.

Photography was extremely important to the both of us because we knew that this would be our only memory left of such a special day that took so much sacrifice, patience, and love into every detail throughout the entire planning. We chose Sun & Sparrow because we were drawn to each amazing photo we saw, each one spoke to us, as we were doing our research we kept going back to these photos, the shots we saw in your website truly captured some amazing images filled with love, joy, & happiness, we wanted exactly that. Sun and Sparrow was also referred to us by my sister Marla Feeney whom is a professional photographer, we just knew her recommendation was a great one and she was right 🙂

Yes, our advice to new brides is, prepare in advance even if it means tackling one item at a time, when you start checking items off your list early on, the less stressed you’ll be the closer it gets to your wedding day. The sooner you plan the better! Also, don’t stress the small stuff, no one but you will notice, remember it’s all about having fun and enjoying the most memorable moment with your loved ones. As the bride gets teary eyed, for us being with each other day to day, waking up and going to bed knowing that we both have God at the center of our marriage, each other, and a deep love for one another is our favorite part of our marriage 🙂
