helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

When we got to Costa Rica on Monday, we had some lunch, did some swimming, and then walked down the pier to the sunset bar for some cocktails. The view was stunning, even though it looked like a storm was brewing.

We are MARRIED! We just kept saying it over and over to each other. It just doesn’t seem real, still. The day was gone in a flash like a dream…

My new rings- gorgeous, no?
