MARRIED: MAY 26TH, 2012
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US.....
Rafael and I met when my sister turned 25! We had a friend in common and he took his buddies to the party, little that I knew I was going to meet the love of my life that day! Funny enough, I was not attracted to him when we met but there was something about him that made me want to be closer. We became good friends after the party and as we started to hang around a little bit more, I knew I wanted to be with him. He stole a kiss from me and that was it! Our relationship was not perfect and yes, we had our issues and misundestandings..broke up for about six months, got together again and got engaged and now we are finally married! I LOVE HIM WITH ALL MY HEART and hope to be with him FOREVER!
THE FIRST STEP OF BECOMING MRS. ARCEO
AUGUST 20TH, 2011
My fiance planned a surprise date...He did not say what or where..It was an AMAZING thought to have planned a helicopter ride! I love heights and adventure and having done skydiving before my next task was a helicopter ride so I was stunned and it was up in the air that he proposed :) Here are some photos......
HERE COMES THE QUESTION!!!!
(I had to give him HUGE credit for this thought as I bake cupcakes and cakes as a hobby)

I love my wedding favors!! I had to browse some ideas and found this boxes from Etsy.com
However, buying these boxes from the site was going to cost way too much, so taking advantage of counting with a very crafty mom, we decided to take on the challege and decided to create our own.
