Our Wedding Story in Pictures

bicultural marriage, interracial marriage, Mexican wedding

Just six summers ago, my husband and I got married.  We had been dating for about two and a half years and engaged for another two and a half years before we finally tied the knot.

Some people think we waited too long, other think we didn’t wait long enough, but we personally think we did it right for us.  We’re eleven years together, six years married and we have our friendship and a beautiful daughter to show for it.

In honor of our journey together, I wanted to share some of our favorite photos from that special day and our honeymoon in Michigan’s U.P. and Canada.  :)
