Jun 23, 2012
From the moment I became active on the boards, little PW goals started forming for me. First it was the carats, then certain badges. Further down the road I dreamed of becoming a hostess. In the back of my mind, the goal that was most coveted besides becoming a hostess (which I was estatic when that happened in April 2012) was to be featured as Bio of the Week! My dream came true on Friday 9.7.12! It is such an honor to be not only considered for this let alone chosen and featured along side other beautiful and gorgeous weddings/brides on this site! We planned the wedding day with a tight budget according to what was important to us and a true reflection of us and I hope that in doing so we are an inspiration for other couples.
On June 23, 2012, it was a sunny summer day when we said I DO and become Mr. & Mrs. Albert ♥
"The best is yet to come" And I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us!
It was the utmost and utterly perfect day we've ever shared together. It was truly awe inspiring and amazing to be surrounded by so much love and support.
Like so many before me; I hope you find inspiration from my bio! If you use any of my photos, please credit my awesome photog, Bryan Ho Photography!
Many thanks, hugs, and kisses! Muah!

First dance as Husband and Wife ♥
The best speeches ever. Seriously. Both speeches made us both laugh and made me cry. They were from the heart and it was an honor to hear how much love was in them.
After cake cutting we had some toasts.
Dan's Dad Al who was also our officiant made a toast to everyone and raised his glass telling us he loved us both and that's been a joy watching us through the past years. He's not an outwardly affectionate guy so this was extremely touching.
Toast from the new Mr. and Mrs. - Dan thanked everyone for coming and for supporting us, loving us and for celebrating with us.
After Dan was done, I took over the mic to present my bouquet to my Grandparents to honor them and their marriage/anniversary. Which they followed with a dance to their song from their wedding.
One of my must have shots was a 3 generational ring photo with my Mom and my Grandma
Dan's Cousin Alora from CT caught it.
Dan's HS friend Mark, who flew out from Colorado, caught the garter.
