We're getting married in Charleston, South Carolina May 14, 2010!
US: We met in college, playing soccer @ Central Michigan University. Long story short, at our end of the year banquet, our dates left together. Without us. So we got to talking, exchanged numbers, and here we are!
We moved to Charleston, SC to go to grad school. I'm in physical therapy school @ MUSC and Jose is getting his masters in environmental science. We're so ready to get married and start our life together!
I still hadn't seen a sunrise since we moved to the east coast (one year before). I asked him if we could go one morning after my finals and before we went back to MI for a visit. May first we woke up at 5 to get ready & packed before we went to the beach to see the sunrise. We sat and watched it, and I was cold so I wanted to go back to the house...he stalled and as we were walking back he stopped me, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him :) He basically told me later he had to make me think any plans were my idea so I wouldn't get suspicious that he was planning something for once...We had our engagement pictures done where we got engaged a few months earlier.
Here's my Tacori Beauty...After going ring shopping and deciding I couldn't wear a straight up band w/my long, skinny fingers, I fell in love with the way this ring gradually went from skinny to the size of the center stone in the middle. I tore out this ad, left it on my DH's desk, and he kept it in his wallet for a long time =)
And lo and behold, May 1, 2009 she was mine!

We'll be staying at the Hilton San Francisco:
And I've already booked our sunset tour to Alcatraz!!! SO pumped!! (is that weird??)
Since I am pretty crafty and have some free time (not much!) from school, I'm going to try and DIY stuff for the wedding that I've found inspiration for!

Save the Dates:
We went to Playa del Carmen, Mexico for our one year anniversary!
We stayed at Playacar Palace, and all-inclusive resort just off the ferry dock from Cozumel and on 5th Avenue!
We HAD to go see Chichen Itza. I've been dying to go since my days in Spanish class in high school!
And went snorkeling in Cozumel, where the fish literally follow you as you swim. So pretty! [Unfortunately it wasn't this colorful, but I saw almost every single fish from "Finding Nemo", so I consider it to be successful!]
And of course we lounged by the beach:
And I had a wonderful birthday there as well! What a place to turn 26 =)
