I am so excited for our wedding July 25th, 2009 in Torrance CA. We met in college in 2000 and made it official in 2003. We have been engaged since 2007. This has been a long time coming and I will be running down the aisle. Our wedding will not be the oridinary traditional wedding.
I am looking forward to this celebration!!

Our Wedding Invites
Our Colors Are:
I HEART BEYONCE!!
MY DRESS--BUT IN IVORY
Some like to call it mermaid fit, other's the trumpet..I just say it fits like a glove!! At first I thought that I wanted frilly princess, but I soon discovered that the dress that hugged my curves was the way to go.
THE SHOES--I HEART PINK!!
My black jewelry with some bling!!!
My lovely hair flower courtesy of YJdesign on Etsy!!
For hair I am thinking slight pompadour ponytail with side bang and my wonderful hair piece, or pompadour with side bangs and hair down and wavy. I love the natural make-up look with a smokey eye and natural lips with a hint of pink.

Our reception will be in the SERC's Banquet Room at 6:00pm.
I recently decided to scratch the flowers, and decided to use Lanterns as centerpieces. We will have a couple of flower petals sprinkled on the tables as well. We are going to use our e-session pictures as table numbers and instead of numbers we are going to use words like: Summer, Love, Cherish etc. to seat our guest at their tables.

We will be using the signature frame as our guestbook, I may change the frame to an Antique frame.
When choosing our Ceremony and Reception Songs we often chose songs that were loved ones favorites as well as ours. We have to first dance songs, my fiance is a lover of funk and old school and loves Funkadelic/Parliment. We decided to do something different for our first dance, we are going to start off with our favorite Brian McKnight song and then the DJ is gonna cut the music with a scratch like the music went off. And then we get down to the Parliment!!!!
