Aug 18, 2007
We wanted an intimate celebration with 40 people, just family and close friends. We planned our wedding in 3 months on a strict budget. I'm happy to say that we came in under budget.
Our wedding was not perfect. Some of the snafus we ran into were the result of planning in such a short period of time. This should not discourage other budget brides. With some planning, it is doable to have an intimate wedding without completely breaking the bank or running off to Vegas.
On Saturday August 18, 2007, we were married in Pasadena, California at La Casita Del Arroyo.
Our August 18th wedding was actual the second wedding we've planned. We originally planned to get married on April 8, 2007, in Virginia Beach, VA (my hometown). Because of planning difficulties and scheduling problems, we postponed and decided to get married closer to where we live.
Our wedding and its snafus would probably make for a great comedy movie. Even with the hiccups and snags, our wedding turned out beautiful and memorable in its own unique and quirky way.
