Seven Years of Wedded Bliss...

Tuesday, July 3, 2012

So today is our 7th wedding anniversary!  I honestly can't believe it's been SEVEN years!  Where has time gone!  I'm very lucky to have married my best friend!  Together we have the most beautiful twin girls and today, i'm feeling very blessed.  I thought i'd share some pictures of our big day with all of you!  Every bride typically dreams of perfect weather and i honestly could not have picked a better day.  It was sunny, low 80's with a slight breeze... perfection!

The arrival at church.  My sister is in front of me adjusting my veil, my parents are on either side of me and one of my wonderful childhood friends Monica is standing behind me.  I was so overcome with emotion!

These were taken at my parents' house before leaving for church.
Our venue overlooked the NYC skyline making it perfect for pictures!


Dancing with my daddy!  We actually danced to two songs.  The first was "Thank Heaven For Little Girls" which i'd first heard when i was about 12 years old while watching the classic movie Gigi.  I fell in love with this song and knew one day i'd want to dance this with my daddy at my wedding.  The second was "The Way You Look Tonight" by the great Frank Sinatra. I just love that song!

My bridesmaids... pretty in pink!

My wedding cake by the now famous Cake Boss, Buddy Valastro of Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken.  This cake was a true work of art, and it was sinfully delicious too!

I love this picture.  We had to be very still for almost a minute in order to get the perfect shot!  It was hard not to laugh!  Ahh it was a beautiful day indeed, everything i imagined and more, though it did go by too fast!

On a side note, i remember opting to do my own make-up at my wedding because i just couldn't find anyone i loved enough to do it at the time.  The deciding factor was using the money i would have spent on one to buy new makeup for the special day.  One of the products i used that made a lasting impression on me to this day was Nars waterproof mascara.  It was such a smooth formula, no clumping, it was lengthening and definitely waterproof!  Unfortunately, this pefect 'wedding day' mascara is no longer available.  Boohoo! 

Thank you so much for reading and sharing some of my wedding day memories with me!  Let me know your thoughts!  Don't forget to become an official follower of FMM.

I lovingly dedicate this post to my loving husband Pete!  I love you more and more each day...

  12. To let you know reality, I didn't wed him 't contemplate life in Italy. However the Asians in the shadi is quite, exceptionally imperative, and put an incredible accentuation on family values.
