Mexican Wedding cookies...a tribute to our Mexican Heritage....They're also very yummy...
Rugelach...a tribute to my Fiance's Jewish Heritage...He's a Mexi-Jew! :)
Hanging out at the Metro Rail Tear-stained face from crying happy tears!
He proposed on my B-day. I wanted a low key day so we arranged to spend the day in Los Angeles. We road the metrolink to Union Station, hung out at Grand Central Market, and ate taquitos at Olvera St. I had no idea that the proposal was coming. We had talked about it but my little sister was getting married in February and we had decided that we wouldn't do anything before then. I thought he was absolutely calm and collected all day long. He made lunch reservations at La Serenata de Garabaldi, a little Mexican restaraunt that we like and he arranged for this Trio to serenade us. I honestly had no idea that they were there just for us. I almost went in my purse and pulled out some money to tip them so they would leave our table and let me eat my soup! He had told them that he wanted to propose while they played the song Piel Canela. I ended up surprising him when it was the 1st song I requested. The members of the trio gave him a knowing look and he pulled out the ring and proposed.
I fell in love with Ivanka's bouquet when I first saw it....
Here is mine from modagefloral on Etsy
*********************************Mine are Done!!!!****************************************
My Bouquet Bouts & Corsages
Mother of Bride & Mother of Groom's Bouquet Fi's Bout
My centerpieces will be this ivory vase with the ceramic rose (purchased at Michael's) with these silk flower bouquets from A Floral which I spruced up a bit.
Centerpieces I found these candlesticks at an antique store for $6.00 each!
I'm not going to use these candlesticks because they aren't allowed by my venue.
Close-up of my centerpiece flowers...I made them into mini bouquets so that I can easily drop them into the vases the day the wedding and not have to fuss with them...
Purple votives purchased from par228!
Table Card Inspiration
I will use these stands for table names and place pictures of places we've visited and places we will be visiting on the honeymoon. These can be purchased at Shelley B Home & Holiday.
Crystal Tree Inspiration
I got some super helpful info from MommyLynda re: where to purchase Manzanita branches. I'm not typically too Artsy but she made it sound doable! I haven't started yet but I'll post pics once I get a mock up done.
First, Second, & Third Attempt....
