@#$%&*!

I was content. Sitting there in my bra and underwear, getting my hair and makeup done, listening to the sounds of my bridesmaids giggling and my nieces playing. I was 2 hours away from marrying my favoritest man on the planet and in that moment, I could feel that our day would be perfect. It was then when our photographer Jasmine Star was photographing my dress and said, "Okay, I so want to get your wedding published!". I smiled and nodded. Although to me, our wedding was awesome, never in my wildest dreams did I think a publication would think it was. Plus, ALL the weddings Jasmine photographs are insanely gorgeous so how could our day compare to her other weddings?

Well to my surprise, the editors at The Knot thought our wedding was worthy enough to share. In print. In a magazine. Sold in stores. Nationally. TO FUTURE BRIDES-TO-BE! Steven and I are beyond excited. To be honest, I squealed like a little kid when I first saw it and he walked with a little extra pep in his step. We're already exhausted from autographing copies for my Mom! I want to thank Jasmine for documenting every last detail of our day so beautifully. And to all of our vendors, thank you for being so amazing and helping make our day so dang special!






A special shout out to Gladys Jem for spotting us and alerting me via twitter. STILL amazed at the power of the internet. Holler!
