Last August 12, 2013, my husband and I celebrated our first anniversary! One year went by quickly, we didn’t even realize it had already been 365 days since we walked down that aisle and said our vows (it’s also almost been a year since I promised to share photos which I never got around to doing until now, woops!)
To be honest, I never had a dream wedding in mind unlike those girls depicted in movies or TV shows that have picked out their dresses, motif, wedding cake flavor down to who sits next to who in the reception – way ahead of time. I really didn’t intend to be married this early in my life as I’ve always seen myself as a careerwoman with little-to-no-life outside of work till I’m 30. Thankfully, God had better and more fulfilling plans for me!
However, that meant planning the whole wedding in a span of one and half months with nothing but Pinterest pegs and wedding blogs to help the then-fiance and I out. Add to that a first-trimester-morning-sickness-ridden me that wasn’t of much help to Enzo. Even fitting into my wedding gowns, I had fainted twice in my designer’s office. It left me whimpering in a corner because I felt so anxious I wouldn’t be able to last throughout the wedding and reception ceremonies without experiencing the same.
If it were not for my tenacious and determined now-husband, I still could have been in that corner crying. He untiringly talked to all the wedding suppliers and vendors from the Church, reception venue, caterer, florist, event stylist, photographer & videographer, coordinator, band, etc. — that our On-the-Day wedding coordinator Chinkie, didn’t have a hard time at all during the big day because Enzo planned it well. He was the groomzilla and I couldn’t be more proud and delighted to call him such (hee hee).
Thank you to everyone who made this possible — from our family members who’ve been there all throughout to our friends who’ve supported and helped in every way they can to make one of the biggest days of our lives more unforgettable, magical and memorable than it should be.
And thank you to my dear husband, for his unrelenting, unswerving and unwavering efforts to move mountains and cross oceans just to make this day as beautiful as I wanted it to be. I’d like to take this chance to let my husband know that what he has done and accomplished is truly and exquisitely above and beyond what I’m even capable of imagining. I love you, Enzo.
