Yep, that is me … on the ladder about to dive into a lagoon in my wedding dress. But 1st, let’s remind. Hubby and I were married in Kauai, Hawaii (a very private ceremony on the beach), it was MAGICAL! A fairy-tale come true.
Did you spot the ‘I Love You‘ rock from my hubby (then known as ‘the groom’)? I spotted the secret love note as I was walking through the beautiful path of trees heading to the aisle, before I could see anyone in the ceremony. I had to hold back tears of joy. (pssst, yes, I stuffed it into my suitcase). My mom is the one in the blue Hawaiian dress, holding back joyous tears as Patrick and I kissed her at the same time. After the beach ceremony we went into our limo and headed to a beautiful waterfall for a waterfight.
Yep, into the water we went to reach the waterfall, climb the HUGE rocks, pose for photos, then waterfight!!!!
We honeymooned in Tahiti and Bora Bora. I usually get gasps from people when I mention that I swam with my wedding dress. But that’s ‘me’, a gal that loves to have fun with a fairy tale optimism. I’m blessed to have a partner who loves me and my crazy ideas (like jumping in the lagoon with our wedding attire on!). The photos in Hawaii were by a professional photographer, but in Bora Bora we took the photos ourselves using my Nikon. Ready, set, shoot / jump:
Ok, my turn ….
Oh, by the way, this is how I ALWAYS dive into water .. holding my nose … nope, not elegant at all …. (but it’s my survival mode haha). The water was about 10′ deep.
This photo below get’s me a bit emotional bec if you look at the waves closely you will notice a heart shape. Done unintentionally. Fairy tale magic!
The water was perfect for the photoshoot …. the day was fun, relaxing, and blissful. The great part .. it was me and my hubby … no one else taking the photos .. just us having fun and in love.
Now below is one on my FAVORITE photo taken by the photographer in Hawaii as we walked to the waterfall. I love the symbolism I see within the photo = showing 2 paths (on the left and right side). It reminds me that the choices we make leads us to particular paths .. and authentic living leads us to a path of happiness.
What do you think of our wedding photos and my wedding dress? … only $399 (David’s Bridal). I wanted an economical dress because (1) that’s how I roll (I looove discounts hence building a company that offers economical decorating solutions) and (2) bec it was a beach wedding where we would be traveling to the waterfall and more. Don’t you think my dress looks like waves??!!. Get it? .. beach theme wedding = waves = meant to be, right! I am def not the type of gal that wanted to spend a lot on the dress, to me an expensive dress doesn’t define my happiness. Similar to my interior decorating services philosophy - expensive furniture items doesn’t make a room beautiful but surrounding yourself with items you love that make you smile and brings comfort does.
