Im Suzanne and my fiance is Kenny.
I wanted to fill all of you guy's in on what my life was like before I met Kenny. I was a bit of a stubborn child with a dream of getting married and leaving my mother's house! Don't get me wrong I love my mother more than anything! I met my first mistake back in 2003 and was smitten with the idea of love marrage and a family (mind you I was 17). We got married 5 month's later (still 17) and got preg right away! I can't say that my oldest son was a mistake because I would be lying, we wanted a baby and I of course was young and nieve to believe I was old enough to be a mother.. He was in and out of jail so I was basically alone with our son ALL the time.. And of course I wanted the marrage to work because I don't believe in giving up. In '05 we had our next son and boy was I depressed by then! 2 yrs later we were evicted and moving in with my mother... To my surprise I found out CONGRATS your prego AGAIN! With my baby girl (my one and only). I decided that was it I'm not gonna live my life as a lazy sit a home doing nothing with 3 kid's mother sooo I went back to school and got my HSD and the week I graduated I had my princess.. Little to our avail she was born with a birth defect a mild form of spinabiffoda I was heart broken :'( I spent the next month and a half with her in the nicu at the hospital, with the support of my mother and sister to help out with my 2 older boy's I was able to be with her 24/7 <3 She got to come home and then the fun really began 3 kid's under 3 hmmmm I wanted to scream HELP!! But of course I sucked in my pride and did what I had to do with my family.. We were doing good and I found a part time job as a server (not ideal but I couldnt complain it was a job).. Then in '09 to my great surprise I found out CONGRATS your having another baby!! Well that was a surprise!! Already struggling to take care of my other 3 I was expecting #4.. So with no help from my seperated husband (did a prison stay for 4 yrs) I about went insane.. Until A friend of mine offered me a job making 10 bucks an hour relief set in that we were gonna be ok for the while but it didnt last long at all.. Then in Dec of '09 came along the guy I never thought would want to be with a single mother of 4 kid's (not having any of his own) He took us in and treated my kid's like they were his own!! ahhh I couldnt believe this was happening to me of all people! In '10 he asked me to marry him and with my answer being yes we went from there, I found a job at the hospital by our house and saved up money for my divorce.. I filed with out the help of a lawyer and 5 months later was granted my long awated divorce in the summer of '11 <3 here are a few pic's of my beautiful children!
My princess and flower girl Paige <3

And here is a lil bit about how Kenny and I met..We met online actually on myspace back in '09 towards the end of November to the begining of Decmber. We met in person at the end of January in '10.. From that point on we started dating a shortly after (very shortly) that he asked me to marry him! He had taken me to this beautiful lake at sunset and asked me of course I was shocked! But with the biggest smile on my face i said YES!! Ive been plannin the wedding ever sence its been almost 2 yrs and now were ready to start our DIY journey :)These are our wedding color's My baby girl in her Flower Girl dress all it needs is a petticoat to give it more POOF!!

My vision: I want a elegant outdoor wedding with a lot of light's and candle's!!
On Wends My DHs family started showing up from Maryland and Pa, first his brother and his wife then Thursday his other brother his wife & their daughter, granddaughter and grandson. We all hung out Thursday Kenny got DrUnK! It was so funny too because we dont drink hardly ever so to see him so sloshed it was really funny!!
Friday we were still hanging out relaxing and all of the kids were playing Kenny got out his motorcycle and we all took turns riding it around. We just had a great day!!
Saturday morning! WEDDING DAY!! Black clouds are everywhere! Our wedding was outside and it rained all morning, but its ok it stopped about 11am. About 7am Kenny and I got up and out of bed I wouldnt let the kids go outside cause I didnt want them to get all dirty and gross so they stayed inside with the family as Kenny and I decorated the yard under the tent and everything! My Bff Kim showed up 45 mins LATE! But it was all good she started helping too and by 11am everything was done! MIL SIL & BILs were cooking all the food getting it ready for later in the afternoon.. I took a shower and went to leave the house at 1230pm to go meet my mom and sister at the salon to get our hair done.. Right as I left Kenny started blowing up my phone yelling at me because everything was blowing off the tables the streamers were getting tangled in the trees and the chamagne flutes were flying away because of the wind! But Bff was here to make sure everything was taken care of so I have no clue why he was yelling at me I guess he was just freaking out!!
We were on time but it felt like we were running late we got done at the hair salon around 3pm or so and went staight to my moms house to get everyone dressed and ready to go! My mom left to go get my Gma and bring her back to the house and my sister drove me in her car to our house, her friend drove behind us in my car and my mom drove my gma in her car. We had to go SO SLOW for my gma so they didnt get lost, it took us what seemed like forever to get home! When we did get here I ran into our house so Kenny wouldnt see me and my mom was upset because I told my brother to usher her to her seat and he didnt!! So my mom and gma were just standing around but I couldnt do anything about it cause no one was listening to me!!
After the officiant showed up to talk to us Kenny felt a lot better after that!
Around 6pm or so the music started playing and everyone was waiting so I pushed the BMs out the door and told them to walk!! I had my brother on my arm and the girls were about down the aisle and we stared to walk....
As the emotions started building up I turned the corner and saw DH standing there CRYING!! OMG So unexpected because he said I wont cry!! And sure enough thats what he was doing!! We had the ceremony and and when it was time for the section that we honor the kids as members of our wedding the officiant called all 4 of our kids up and when she started reading I looked over at the kids to smile and they were crying! Ok so then Im crying then EVERYONE is crying EVERYONE!! All of our guests were crying!!
So the reception the band took me by surprise they were pretty awesome we were dancing all night long DHs brother bought like umpteen amounts of alcohol and everyone was drunk!! hahaha It was pretty awesome!
The photogs were so awesome and everything was perfect!!
Sister love! Me & my big sister!The back of my hair! The stylist did an AMAZING job!The flower I made for my hair! I LOVE how everything turned out!!My beautiful daughter!! &&FG She loved all of the attention she was getting LOL The back of her hair which turned out better than the picture I showed the stylist!Putting the finishing touches on my baby girl!HAHAHA I didnt know getting ready would be such a pinful experience! JK IDK why I look crazy!My FAB 2 yr old son Levi!DH & his wonderful mom who cooked ALL of the food for our wedding!
I have been searching the internet for stylish tent decor ideas for our June wedding and I found a few of these...
We have an abundance of white christmas lights that we are going to wrap around the tent like this..
I was also thinking or getting some paper lanterns in different sizes to hang on the inside of the tent like this..
I love the tree in the background!
I love this look and have bought the streamers to hang from the tree that we will be married under I just need to get the dark purple :)
Still on the hunt for more!!
Our wedding is a Alice in Wonderland themed wedding we are getting married on June 2, 2012 On a large piece of property owned by Kenny's mother. It is very beautiful out here in the Florida Country and I have been running around like crazy putting our wedding togther so it will be perfect! Here are a few things I have done so far :) Enjoy..
Here are our centerpieces and a few table settings I mocked up to show you the general idea of our tables. Our tables are 72inch round so I really wanted square plates for our settings I love smartyhadaparty.com They have everything you could ever need there!! For all of my bridesmaids I want them in this style dress in black I know it will look stunning on all of my girls! (and they love it as well)..My reception inspiration Picture! I love this concept and want to incorperate this as well, we have plenty of trees and hopefully I can find enough lights to make it happen!!
Ok so most of you know I have 4 kids and they are my world but most of my friends ok well ALL of my friends have kids as well.. I love kids they are SO fun and creative I thought I would get creative with them and for them! Sooo after scouring the internet FOREVER! I have found these & Oh man they are TO freaking CUTE!!
