Happy One Year Anniversary to Markel & Me! <3

I CANNOT believe it’s been an entire year since we got married in Cypress, CA.  The day was BEYOND stressful, we had a few too many drinks, and we danced our asses off. xo  That day I married my best friend and I’m so incredibly lucky!!  Here are a few (ok more than a few) of our big day! ❤

Oops, totally forgot to post these from a few months before!  The last and final post of the wedding ❤

The Reception!

This day feels soOOOOoo long ago.  I can’t believe we got married and are currently living a newlywed life…so weird! lol  Feels like yesterday when Markel and I met and were having a blast as early 20-somethings.  But 5+ years later…here we are as a married couple. ❤

4 Gold Knuckle Rings from Etsy

I just bought these over the weekend and I’m so pysched for them to arrive!  I have fat fingers, so I didn’t think Knuckle rings would be flattering~ but I tried some on when I was in SF two weekends ago and well…they actually make my fingers look longer!  Go Figure.

Etsy Store: Galisfly

Fun Friday: Wedding Moments

My favorite people in the entire world~~ I didn’t get to take group pictures with people (so sad) but I was lucky enough to take them with my favorite people at the end of the night next to the Bar (go figure… that’s where they all were).

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 ❤

Oh man…Such a fun and relaxing morning.  I think the last half hour was pretty cray~ but it was all worth it! xoxo ❤

Rehearsal Dinner, Wedding Prep, Bridal Party Madness

Yes…this is more than a month late.  Life has been so cray!  Here are pictures from the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner ❤  It’s awesome to post these a little late because it brings back all the wonderful memories of that weekend! xo

Eagles Nest Clubhouse

(note: I would never recommend anyone having their wedding here now that I’ve gone through it.  Read my Yelp Review for more info)

All the unglamourous wedding prep of Thursday Night and Friday Morning…

Wedding Prep and Hotel Madness

I would have to say, that the night before the wedding was probably one of the most fun nights.  Our entire bridal party stayed in the same hotel, on the same floor.  We all hung out, drank, danced, the boys dared each other to do stupid things, and we did some flower prep for the wedding.  Overall, it was probably the most relaxed I had been for a while~~ The Big Day was already upon us and all I had to do was enjoy being with y closest friends ❤

Here are some random fun photos of the night~~ Only the blog appropriate ones.  hehe

Weekend Recap and Update

Markel and I had a really big and busy weekend.  We hosted guests to our new place for the first time.  It was filled with lots of loved ones, fun, good food, and drinks! ❤

Friday Night, we hosted a thank you dinner for some of the people who helped at the Wedding.  (second diner party to come soon!)  We ate delicious chicken enchiladas, chicken tortilla soup, sangria, beer…and dessert that no one got to eat =(

We attempted to play a game, but the girls rocked the boys so fast that…well…it wasn’t fair to finish.  hehe

Saturday, my new parents (MIL, FIL) came over and we hung out and watched a movie.  It was fun being able to host in our new place ❤

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!
