I thought it would be fun to post some of my wedding pictures and show what a traveler would add to his or her wedding! With the addition of my favorite color pink, which is apparently not a color for the month of December but I couldn't imagine a wedding without it, I also gave my wedding the theme of "Travel".
Let me back up a second first for those who didn't even know I was getting married or even heading in that direction...
I didn't know I was heading in that direction either!!
It all happened so fast! I was at the point where I didn't think I was going to get married and my sole purpose was to travel until love found me at the right time. I was putting my focus on this blog, continuing my food journey in hopes of starting my catering/side biz called "Tastefully Global" (more on that soon!!), finding ways of travel, and was about to accept a position to teach English in Brazil!
All these exciting things to look forward to! Around that time, something inside of me was telling me to focus on finding my travel (life) partner before I took steps towards this other journey. I was focusing more on God, allowing myself to look out there, and what do you know...right when I was about to give up on looking, he came out of nowhere! All thanks to God and his timing!
This guy travels like me, loves the same things that I do, we have the same life directions, goals, and everything that's important in life! I met him in May 2014 (our year is coming up soon!), he proposed and I said YES in July (in 2 months of getting to know each other!), and at the end of last year on December 21, 2014, we said our "I do's!", and we've been together ever since!
Yes, it's been a whirlwind and fast, but I wouldn't have had it any other way! We went on a month long honeymoon through Southeast Asia and I cannot wait to post about our honeymoon adventure! But first, here are a few pictures of how a traveler throws a wedding!

And what song would a traveler pick for the last dance? :)
And I'll leave you with a few pictures of the lovely wedded Mr and Mrs!
