I’m Married!!

I always wondered if and when I would be able to say that. It’s been quite the journey for me. I’ve traveled this road littered with compromise, hurt, and failure, but i was determined to never settle for less than what God had planned for me. I waited a long time for my husband. When he finally crossed my path he was more than I could ever hope for. He was beyond my greatest dreams or expectations. I wondered to myself if I even deserved this. I prayed to God and wrote in my journal, “Is he mine?… Do I get to keep him?” Like he was a puppy I found on the street! We were married on June 11, 2011 in Half Moon Bay, CA. My sister, Veronica, planned my entire wedding for me while I was on the road with my stand up comedy up until the week before my wedding. Everything about my wedding was perfect except for the fact that I got sick the day of! It was my own fault too. I took way too many supplements that morning. I was already on antibiotics because I was fighting a flu, I took my multi-pack of vitamins which is 6 pills, I took a decongestant pill and 3 Advil’s for my headache. I know, what an idiot!! What was I thinking? I knew better than that. I don’t know what compelled me to swallow aisle 3 from the pharmacy, but I did. When I woke up that day I was so happy and excited. I was ready. I wasn’t nervous at all. We had a great time doing hair and make up. I had all my best girlfriends in the room, we were laughing, dancing, it was great. Then all the sudden I felt a rumbling in my tummy. Hmmmm, I hope that goes away. Manwell and I had decided to take photos before the wedding started. We were only about 15 minutes into the photos when I said, “Uh oh.” I don’t know if you have seen the movie Bridesmaids, where Maya Rudolf’s character goes Boo Boo in her dress… but that was 14 seconds away from being me! I had to stop and RUN back to my room and jump out of my dress before we had a disaster on our hands… or dress. My photographer had to help me! (Thanks Grace!) That was the beginning of the end for me. I tried to take more photos but I ended up running back to my room and jumping out of my dress 3 times before my ceremony even started. All in all it was a beautiful day. I saw a lot of healing that day, mended relationships, family members who don’t normally talk to each other were taking pictures together and laughing and having a good time. I guess that’s what it’s all about. My wedding was for a bigger purpose than me just getting to look pretty and walk down the aisle. We had some amazing photographers and videographers at our wedding. I was debating how much of my special day I wanted to share with the public but these photos and this video were just to beautiful to not share with the world. (also Manwell said he would put them up if I didn’t so I lost that battle) Our photographers Grace and Hun set up this really awesome photo booth with props and a back drop so all of our guests could take pictures of themselves. It was so awesome! Everybody loved that. Grace and Hun work as an awesome team together, playing off each others creative eye. I just knew my photos were going to be fab! Scinema Productions were absolutely fabulous. At the end of our reception after the last song was played the lovely team at Scinema Productions surprised us with this beautiful same-day-edit video at our reception. We were completely blown away at how beautifully they put this together and couldn’t believe they did it all on the same day. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place. Even the staff was so emotional after watching the video. While working with Ash, Kevin and the rest of the team we had such a great time. They were all such cool and sweet people. I would recommend them and all of my vendors to everyone. With that being said, I would like to invite you all into a glimpse of my special day. . .

    I am so late on watching this video almost a year later I came across your beautiful wedding video. Thank you for sharing. Marriage is a great reflection of Christ and his church. We are to be a great examples of that in our marriages. Christ loved the church so much he died for it. I myself am 34 and been married almost 15 years and it’s been such a blessing from God that he would allow me to be this man’s wife. I just want to encourage you when you have tribulations in your marriage which we all do remember God hand picked your husband for you before the beginning of time and any good or bad thing you face went through God’s hand first. I pray for your marriage and also that God will be glorified through your marriage. Congrats and many blessings.

    Wow Anejelah just saw your wedding video and loved it. You were really patient in waiting for your husband. I have a very similar story with the cyberstalking & meddling friends except I run away when my guy comes around. I refused to admit it out loud less known to my “oh my goodness your about to be 30 & still single-we need to get you married ASAP” friends.  I prayed for confirmation and got  (took my breathe away)! All that to say this 
    your story was encouraging, thanks for sharing! Let’s pray I don’t run away the next time my guy comes around.

    it may not be a taboo subject but usually people don’t talk about such subjects.

  49. Calla Lilies, which can be not actually a lily
    in any way, are often found in wedding bouquets and other floral arrangements.

    The graceful lines and delightful shape of the calla lily turn it into a
    popular choice for wedding bouquets and centerpieces. You
    can probably even find some varieties that aren’t naturally white that have been made into a white silk version of it.

    For that one you will need to use floral wire to secure your stems together.
