Our face is basically—“ahhh we made it”  The weeks leading up to the wedding were SO STRESSFUL, I know understand why people hire wedding planners ( we did not).  They are worth EVERY PENNY!

The Morning of the Wedding!

The morning of the wedding…the calm and fun times before the big day.  My bridesmaids were AWESOME as they helped me get ready, helped with the flowers, and also made sure I was eating/drinking!  Here’s a collage of our morning together, as my last moment as Ms. Esther Chang.

These are all from a simple point and shoot camera.  Professional pics to come ❤

Photomadness before the Wedding

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!  So much has happened in the last MONTH!  Lots to update you guys on ❤

In the first few weeks of April, I had a whirlwind of pre-wedding celebrations and 2 funerals. =(  Sad times mixed with lots of lovely, happy moments with friends and family.

Since it’s been a crazy month, here are some fun pictures of the beginning of April while I get my weekend recaps + photos in order ❤

My Friend lives on a Farm in Fresno (Curuthers to be exact) and they have tons of amazing grape vines, almonds, fruit of every kind…it’s AWESOME.  Her family was so warm and welcoming!

Weekend Recap and Photodump

eek i’m late again!  Two weekends ago…was a whirlwind of fun, that ended up with me sick in bed and Markel injured on his whole left side =(  We are broken people right now… lol

Friday, I went to a very classy, LBD cocktail Bridal Shower at Chaya in downtown LA.  The ambiance was romantic, the food was DELICIOUS, and the decor was very sweet.  It was nice to catch up with the ladies and toast to a new bride to be!

Then I went out with Markel and his friend to Father’s Office for a chill, late night hang out.

Saturday…bright and early we did tux fittings, flag football, and then Markel and I tended to our big wounds (His got really infected.  gross and painful)

Sunday, we moved out finally!!  Markel and I cleaned ALL MORNING on our hands and knees (next time…we’re hiring someone).  Then we rushed home, changed, went to visit our venue one final time~ and then had our final engagement shoot at Thousand Step!  To say that we were exhausted…doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Here’s a quick photodump.

Weekend recap and Photodump (part II)

Friday was one BUSY day.  I woke up at 7am and went to bed at 12am and every moment I was running around doing SOMETHING.

In the morning, Mike and I signed our lease to the new apartment!!  Here he is carrying me over the threshold =P  Although we aren’t married yet, it was an epic and fun day to do this.

Weekend Recap and Photodump

This past weekend was incredibly productive and lazy at the same time.  I really missed having such a carefree few days off and hanging out with friends.  I feel like since I got engaged, there haven’ t been many “party” weekends.  But I hope that’ll change soon!  haha  Only 46 more days till the wedding!  eeeek

Friday, Markel and I hung out with my bff and her bf.  We watched a redbox movie and had Tacos with an Asian twist!

image

Saturday, I went to a wedding dress fitting for a girlfriend’s wedding and then spent the day doing wedding stuff (but in a non-stressful, leisurely pace)

image

Spray painted outside in the patio.  Look how dark my hands/feet were after the black paint!  eeek.

image

Sunday, Church as usual.  Ran tons of errands, hung out with friends, and really relaxed at home with Markel ❤  Also watched a ton of Walking Dead episodes.  LOVE that show!

image

Anoter really fun thing about the weekend was that Markel and I cooked at home for every meal.  We tried new recipes and tried to really eat all the stuff in our fridge.  It was really fun and something new.  This is the first time that we’ve eaten at home for almost every meal!  Crayyy.

image

image

Green Smoothies!  I’ve started making these 1x per day and they’re delicious! xoxo My goal is to drink one everyday from this past weekend until the wedding ❤

Wedding Decor Ideas

As wedding planning is underway, I’ve been trying “cut the fat” on unnecessary decorations, flowers, and details.  I am not a perfectionist and I don’t like stressing out, so I’m coming up with some fool-proof plans to make sure that my “big day” is 100% fun and not about the details.

Weekend Recap and Photodump

This past weekend was one busy one!  I had Monday off for President’s day weekend so I tried to make the most of all three days.  PLUS, I got to babysit one of the cutest Labs in the entire world.  Here’s my photodump of the weekend =)

In true weekend update fashion…I’m super late!!  TWO weekends ago was incredibly fun and packed with tons of friends/family time ❤

Saturday

In the Morning Markel and I got the best surprise ever for our wedding and received a gift of over 100 vases from our friends!  SO SWEET right??  Just in time for our wedding as well =)

Afterwards, I went over to a ladies’ brunch and the 7 of us dishes for hours about our lives, wedding planning and our sig-o’s.

image

After Brunch?  I had a quick wedding dress fitting and off to dinner with my besties and their men.  We met in Silverlake at Red Lion Tavern where they have this famous 2L Boot of beer!! =)  Of COURSE we each had to get one ❤
