2nd Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary. When we were planning the wedding we decided to do destination wedding. Best decision ever! :) Since my family came all the way from Indonesia, I didn't want to just have a wedding then off to honeymoon and leaving my family behind. We figured with destination wedding, everybody get to enjoy a vacation, too.

So, that's what we did. We got married at Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. It was a small wedding, but we all had a blast and what matter most to us was that we were surrounded by those who  matters to us. I mean seriously, we had an amazing wedding, it was intimate and since it's small I love the fact that we get to chat and spent good time with everybody.

With the ocean as the background, we didn't have to do much decoration. I chose to use gerber daisies as my flowers, which is perfect for the tropical colors and we use sea shells for the table decoration. The contrast between the blue ocean and  the bright colors of the daisies were just stunning. And on top of it all, we didn't have to get in debt at all to do the wedding. Here's a few pics from our wedding. The first pic was my  brother walking me down the aisle. Second pic was when we cut the cake. I actually had 2 cakes. I loved, loved this love bird topper. The way they embrace each other just looks so gentle and loving. The other cake has sea shells as the cake topper.

I hope I don't bore you guys with my wedding stories. :) I just have to talk about our wedding a bit.  What can I say it's one of my fondest memory.

You know, we just watched The Blind Side and that movie is so awesome. The story line, the fact that it actually happened, the fact that there's good people out there. I like when she taught him about football, how he has to protect the guys by watch over their blind side

That's how I feel about my husband. He'll watch my blind side. Today's post dedicated to my husband, who loves me so much and makes me very happy. The card below, is not my anniversary card, but does convey how I feel about my husband. All stamps from PTI, except the greeting is from Hero Arts. Butterfly punch from Martha Stewart and for added details I did some hand-stitching (part of Embellish magazine challenge).

Here's an upclose of the french knot cluster that I did for the center of the flowers. Almost look like mini rose, I think.

Well, thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a great week. Hugs, Vera
