Yeah! We are married. What a wonderful weekend! I want to do it all again. It went by so fast, I am reliving the weekend through photos. After much hesitation about a DW, I am SO GLAD we did it. I wouldn't change a thing...well maybe the heat! 90 degrees everyday, yikes! Here are some pictures. I will be back with reviews.

Yeah! We have a wedding date! 9/27/08! I can't wait! After much searching and long thought, we came to the realization that we cannot have the wedding of our dreams in Los Angeles without sacrificing our home fund or our future children's college education (ex, cake cutting $9/slice-need I say more?). So we are moving the party to MEXICO! Thanks to a PW post, we found a wonderful resort in Cabo to host our wedding on 9/27/08. I am so excited! Now the planning really begins.
We went to NYC the weekend before Christmas to visit family and friends. On our second night in town, we were meeting friends for dinner. FI decided he wanted to take pictures of the holiday lights in Columbus Circle before dinner. Keep in mind that it’s December in NY-freezing cold and I was in a boot cast for a broken foot!! So FI drags me out of the warm hotel kicking and screaming to take pictures. As we are walking (me hobbling in a dress) across the street, gale force winds are hitting us from all directions. I was about to abandon ship and get back to the hotel, FI literally dragged me into the park.
We take a few pictures in front of the Time Warner and as I am about to run (hobble fast) back to the hotel, FI told me to wait because he had a gift for me. He pulls out the ring and asked me to marry him. We were literally alone in the park. Believe it or not! Of all places in Manhattan, there was not a single sole except for us. It was as if time stood still. It was the best moment ever. And it gets better.
We walk back to the hotel (more like float back) to meet our friends. As we enter the hotel bar, I see that several of our good friends from NY and LA were waiting for us with champagne to celebrate. I was completely surprised! They all knew and were waiting for us. It was the best night.
I am so excited to be engaged! My fiance and have been dating for four years and living together for the past year. I am so excited to be sharing my life with him. We are located in the South Bay (LA) and would love to get married on the beach or overlooking the beach. We are hoping to get married in Sept/Oct 2008. We just started the planning process and are looking for a venue. Happy planning!
