Welcome to my Atelier!
This will be the page that will house things that I make for the wedding remix.
The first item to go into the atelier will be the bridesmaids gowns.....
I am not sure of the color of the top just yet but the skirts will be in either shades of purple or red
We had already known each other for years and always knew we would get together. I can't even tell you how our romance started. It all just flowed together so naturally. We met, he made a pass at me and I shyed away. One day while talking to him he had to leave. This strange feeling came over me when he walked away. I then realized that I never wanted him to walk away from me again, so I told him how I felt;even when I didn't realize it. His reply was simply, "It was always you......you knew that." After we officially made it official, one night we were out enjoying the summer's night air, and he asked me if I loved his mother. I've known her since I was a child so of course I said yes. His next question was, "Well wouldn't it make sense for my mom to be your mom too?" I said yes. I actually found myself in a jeweler's men's section looking for a wedding band. Yes, I ASKED HIM. He found that very endearing that a woman would give up a chance to show off her hand in order to just have the man of her dreams. We tied the knot on May 28, 2009 early one morning at a park near our home. This man is the epitome of a Good Man. I could never begin to tell anyone of this man's untold kindness, patience, and playful disposition. He is a true romantic. When I say he gives me flowers, he gives me so many that I end up giving some away to family members. He stayed up in Paris with me when I was sick. From midnight romantic dinners, to waking me early to see the sunrise from the best point in the city, Dan is a beautiful person. I literally get lost in him. After we kiss, I have to regain my grip on reality. Looking into his eyes is is like seeing the water off the shore of paradise. He is my blessing from God, and I thank him everyday for this man. He completes me. I love him because he is everything I am not, but everything that I know in my heart is true and righteous and that is what I need to be.
It somehow slipped my mind that I did not post photos of the rings. It's funny cause I still to this day shove it in the face of anyone that will look. It used to drive my habibi nuts, but now he sees it as I am in love with what he gave me. Everyone for some reason or another always want to know why the bands don't match. My favorite flowers are Calla Lilies. I also happen to love the stars. I know you guys like us have those cute couple moments when you say I love you more than all the fish in the sea. Well habibi loves me so much that I am the only woman on the planet with a garden on the moon, filled with my Picasso Lilies. The white band, which is my Anniversary Ring(we were married on our one year anniversary) represents the moon;while my Wedding Ring is the garden with the flowers. Things like that get my Brother-In-Law in the hot seat;his girlfriend is trying to mimic me & my ring among other things. Any of you ladies have that issue? Well anyway Hope you ladies love the ring like I do!
My husband's favorite animal is the Wolf. He loves the fact that they mate for life. With that said what better way to translate that into his wedding band. It's a custom made one of a kind piece that I have named....Mated for Life
The final product!
Growing up, my grandmother & I were very close. I went to see her every weekend. My grandmother was paralyzed, so I went to go help her clean and just to spend time with her. I remember how she always used to have loose change around waiting for me ^_^ The coolest part about her was the fact that she was the one who introduced my mom to my Mother-in-Love. I feel like since she was the reason through events that we even met, that she HAS to be there when we have our Vow Ceremony. She passed in 2001, well before I met my husband, but she knew he was the one for me......I believe it in my heart. I wore her Engagement ring the day I got married. To honor her at our Vow Ceremony, I plan to have an identical bouquet to match mine and lay it on a chair in the front row with a sign. If not, I will definitely have a single flower with a sign in her reserved chair.
