Things are getting serious. In 6 months I will not be behind the camera, I will be in front of it. As the main subject, nonetheless. I will walk down the aisle and get married to my best friend. In 6 freaking months!
First up in this series of I Do! is our Engagement Party, which was about a year ago. What I remember most about the day was how incredibly hot it was. We're talking above 100 Degrees by the time people arrived in the late morning. Second was how amazing my mother was. She went all out for her little girl and whipped up amazing decorations, food and an amazing speech.
Throughout this series, you have to remember that my family is not from America, so a lot of traditions that most of you grew up with, are unfamiliar to us. Despite the cultural differences though, we've managed just fine. Including this Party. Despite the extreme heat, everyone seemed to have had a great time socializing and celebrating Luke and my Engagement.
My mom made all the food, decorations and flowers herself with the help of just a few friends, didn't she do an amazing job? These photos don't do it justice whatsoever (party because back then I had no clue what I was doing - I came a long way!) See what I mean? Gorgeous! I feel so blessed to have such a loving family and even more so that Luke's family has been so kind to let me into their circle.
